I ended up some tickets to see Coldplay at The Palace of Auburn Hills. Upon collecting them we found that they were in a rather nice location, and while this isn’t the sort of music I tend to listen to it was quite an interesting show. It was also the whitest show I’ve ever been to, but I guess that’s to be expected.
We were about five rows up from the front corner of the stage, just high enough up that we could easily see everything happening on stage without being too high up. As can be seen above we or in the links below we were close enough a basic cell phone photo without digital zoom just barely fit the main part of the stage. There were some really nifty effects as well, including spherical screens with internal projectors, video feedback displayed on a large screen behind the band, and die-cut fluorescent plastic butterflies dropped while the venue was lit with blacklights.
