... Canada's apology for Justin "Bieber-balls" Bieber!
Unfortunately, Deadmau5 doesn't play in the sorts of venues C-Girl and I like to frequent. And to be perfectly honest, we're a bit concerted out!
U2, Coldplay and Kings of Leon all in one year. The first two being incredible shows however, KOL was not my favourite and possibly the worst for two reasons...
... if you're a 'stand-and-deliver' type of band, then don't have your show in 110 000 seater stadium! They felt lost and were overshadowed by too many lights and screens.
Don't play new shit and expect us to sing along! For 7 songs in a row, I didn't know a single tune. Which left me standing and swaying like a wind ravaged palm tree!
Coldplay, however, were incredble!
Aside from being RIDICULOUSLY hung-over, the show was incredible and Chris Martin has a stage presence that is something to behold!
They knew some of their new stuff would be unrecocknisable, so what did Coldplay do? They release a whole bunch of beach-balls and giant balloons for the crowd to play with and take photo's while the got through that setlist... amazing!
KOL just drone on in a boring monotonous fashion that got tedeous at the best of times. Don't get me wrong, I am a big fan of KOL! But think 3 shows at a smaller venue would have suited them better than one MASSIVE stadium!
Now, it's time for Big Concerts to bring out Green Day, Linkin Park, Muse and the Red Hot Chili Peppers before I get too old and lose interest in trekking to Soweto for a concert fix!
Cracker day in Jozi!
