Coldplay: AHFOD World Tour

I am not the type who would go with the hype..even in just trying new restaurants or even something like watching artists live just because people make it a big deal. I am also a bit kuripot when buying concert tickets unless I really love the artist and I know it’ll be worth it.

Then came the announcement through that “faster-by-second-per-city” clip via Coldplay’s page showing Manila as one of the stops for their “A Head Full of Dreams (AHFOD)” Tour made me giddy.. well my husband more giddy! Haha! My heart skipped a bit..Coldplay’s Yellow was part of my teenage memory and anthem which is, for me,already enough reason to go and watch.. until I have to think twice of the price, haha.

I started researching and learned that there are other venues (countries) for the band’s Asia leg with cheaper price. We considered Taiwan since it’s also on our vacation list. But, saw an opportunity to go back to one of my favorite cities to get a sure ticket and include a trip too! Thanks to my lucky preggy friend Ave and her fast fingers.. tadah! We have tickets for #ColdplaySingapore! We just really took our chances in booking. VIP tix were not available when we booked though but the next ticket type is already good for us as our back up plan and decide to go for it should there be a chance to grab it. So we did!

I was not expecting to tick of Coldplay in my concert list this month or even year! So thankful to God for having me experience this. And to my husband for making budget for our concert date hihi.


National Stadium in Singapore is huge!!
My Coldplay Date 🙂

It was an experience of a lifetime. Maybe that is the reason I was not really thinking of the concert too much days before so I wont grt distracted at work lol. Although, Yellow and Fix You are my favorites (which isnt surprising). I must admit I became an official fan of the band as a whole, prolly only this decade. But, my admiration went really solid and did not expect for the concert to give us goosies! It only took for the first two songs to give that wow feeling.

Was it really worth it? Well what  I really loved was how the band and the people behind the production made sure the concert was to be so engaging and very experiential as possible! From the xylobands, to the videos,the substantial mini parts of the production, to the live energy of Chris Martin and the band.. I would say yes! Two weeks after kicking off their world tour in the Lion City, the band is still on their AHFOD tour and is currently in South Korea as of this writing.

Chris Martin with his message on sending Love to the World – one of my favorite parts with all thats happening right now

    OMG!! I also went to their Manila stop (! Your so lucky to have seen them in SG as their venue there is much more suitable for concerts (I hate MOA concert grounds!!). I just love how this band captures the hearts of people from different generations. The band sure has come a long way and I’ve been a fan since my college days too! And it’s true that they really gave us one hell of an experience. Definitely an adventure of a lifetime. 🙂

    I know the feeling when you finally let yourself grant the things you really want. It is fulfilling, satisfying and the elatedness is really beyond compare. I’m not a big fan of coldplay and I have just heard about them when I saw most of my friends posting about this concert in Manila. Maybe, I really have to check them If I get the chance. I;m not really into watching concert and just maybe, someday I’ll be seeing myself watching a concert. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful experience during the concert.

    That must be a mind blowing experience. I remember attending a music festival in Penang. The ambiance lighting all were so similar. Great captures… so full of life!

    Lucky girl, you got to watch one of the greatest bands ever live! ^_^ It’s true, ticket prices here in the country were so inflated it’s maddening. You did the right thing, watching their concert somewhere else with relatively cheaper tickets–and with a bit vacation on the side to boot! Two birds with one stone, for the win!

    Great experience! I have a couple of friends who literally bought tickets for their concert to another country!~ So it’s like hitting 2 birds with one stone.

    I would have to say that you are lucky to have witnessed and seen this. People I know travelled to places just to afford cheaper tickets. The tickets in the Philippines are so expensive and yet, they concert is done in a place similar to a garage. So happy that you enjoyed it!

    I used to be a Coldplay fan before I became addicted to KPOP. I remember trying the Yellow in guitars and from then on I loved the band. However, since I had a baby, I wasn’t able to attend to concerts anymore because of ‘priorities’. My latest concerts was from a kpop group. I miss the feeling you have here.

    Happy for you! Buti na lang I’m not a fan of Coldplay otherwise mapapagastos ako dito haha. I don’t understand why the PH producers couldn’t make their ticket prices more affordable para di na kailangan mangibang bansa ng mga fans!
