i know i’ve already posted about my 6 month anniversary of seeing coldplay, but i might as well again (because lets face it it’s a big event reaching the 6 month and 1 year mark). the 21st of november was the greatest night of my life and i will never forget the lights going out and the crowd cheering and the glow in the dark paint and the xylobands and the confetti and the fireworks and the setlist.. but most of all, i will never forget the feeling i had when i saw them all standing right in front of me. they were there for an hour and a half putting on the best fucking show (like always) they’ve ever done. they performed in front of 52,000 people and played the last stadium show they will do before they start touring again. it was a special milestone for them and for me - and hopefully it’s the start of an amazing journey; for the band and for the fans. i promise you coldplay, i promise to be in front of you for every single australian show next tour. that’s a promise i intend to keep 100%. i have never loved anything more than i have loved you. so thank you for giving me the opportunities you have and thank you for CHANGING MY LIFE! ♥ #coldplay
exactly one year ago today, my life changed forever (that sounds dramatic but it really did). on may 13, 2012, coldplay announced their australasian tour. i woke up that morning to find 35 inboxes on tumblr and 30 notifications on facebook, all telling my the same thing. it was definitely one of the happiest moments of my life, because it meant that i could see my favourite band who i love more than ANYTHING in the world live. it’s hard to process the fact that your favourite band breathes and moves and they’re not just videos and photos on the internet. they make music and they make me happier than anything else on this planet. SO THANK YOU COLDPLAY FOR GIVING ME THE CHANCE TO SEE YOU LIVE, AND THANK YOU FOR CHANGING MY LIFE FOREVER ♥ #coldplay #oneyear
MY FRIEND MADDY (http://friheter.tumblr.com/) TEXTED ME W/ THE CAPTION “MY FRIENDS DID THIS TO MY LOCKER THIS MORNING” IM SCREAMING OH MY GOD
(i did a post like this last year as well) i found a band called coldplay. during a number of instances, i had a few experiences with this band, but i have never really thought they were significant until i properly started listening to them. i fell in love with them so quickly and so hard and that really hasn’t changed, despite the recent comments on the whole “blogging about coldplay” issue. i love them with all my heart and that. will. never. ever. change.
coldplay and i have had our ups and downs, and just like in any relationship, we’ve made connections on both emotional and physical levels. they brought me comfort and support, a safe place to call home within their music. they give me happiness no one else can ever give me, and that’s the reason why i love them so much. they’ve given me so much to be thankful of. they’ve given me love that i’ve never really known until now.
sometimes i have my bad days and sometimes i have my good days, but even when i forget that they are still there for me, i know that i’m not alone. some days i might feel alone, but i know that i won’t feel like that for long. their music gives me so many reasons to be happy and to be alive, and other people should feel the same. when i first discovered coldplay, i had terrible anxiety issues, but they gave me the strength to deal with them. they gave me a reason to be happy and they gave me the ability to love something unconditionally - something that will never go away or leave me, because music stays and music will always be alive, despite its age and its form. there is always someone to love music for exactly what it is.
the 21st of november last year was the most beautiful nights of my life! after a year and a half of waiting, the moment finally came to see my idols, my heroes, the most important men in my life. if there was one moment to define what pure happiness is, it was the moment during in my place when chris screamed the “YEAH!” and the lights lit up the confetti that shot into the air. THAT was the most beautiful moment of my life. i remember looking up and finally experiencing that one moment when you realise that you’re seeing your favourite band, and band you love with everything you have, a band that CHANGED your life, a band that gave your life meaning, and maybe even saved it - that is one of the most beautiful moments you could ever have in life.
i have to admit, it’s been 4 months since my concert and i still can’t bring myself to watch live 2012 or listen to live tracks (or even coldplay in general ngl). it’s hard to listen to them on a regular basis, because i literally love them so much that it becomes overbearing at times which results in me crying whilst listening to them (like right now). they are the people that i care for and love so much that they have become my guide. i trust them with anything. i love them with everything. they are more than just my favourite band - they are my best friends.
so coldplay, what an amazing 2 years! we’ve come a long way, and i hope we continue this amazing journey together. it’s you and millions of other beautiful people behind you, and just remember that we love you more than anything else on this planet. so thank you for the livestreams, the tours, the concerts, the friendships, the love, the devotion, the passion, the happiness, but most of all:
THANK YOU FOR THE MUSIC
