Hollywood Palladium, night two

Hollywood Palladium, night two 📷 R42 (@millerworld ) #EverydayLife #Coldplay 🌙☀️ ...

It’s very nearly the end of this round of shows - the penultimate gig for this album. It’s also the ‘big LA show’. So, by rights, today at the Palladium should either be enormously emotional or massively stressful. Oddly, it’s neither - and I cannot put my finger on why.⁣
⁣
There’s almost a sense of relief and relaxed enjoyment - as though the pressure is somehow off and today is a chance to informally just appreciate it. The Jordan broadcast was a massive undertaking and since then, it’s been an assault course of varyingly difficult, not-really-gigs. ⁣
⁣
I remarked the other day that most tours begin with a brutally difficult promo run and then settle into the promised land of smooth running comfortable shows - and on this campaign, we’ve just done the tough bit.⁣
⁣
So maybe this is the payoff? Maybe this is like runners who’ve trained with rocks in a backpack? Finally, just before it all pops onto the archive shelf of history, there’s a chance to just appreciate it?⁣
⁣
I shouldn’t jinx things, of course - there’s still a second Palladium show to do. It was a wonderful night tonight though - and admitting that I enjoyed it can’t screw that up.⁣

So, after the last few days’ discussion of small rooms and getting out there ‘without the big stuff’ we find ourselves in an arena today for @iheartradio’s ALTer EGO, amongst a whole bunch of acts quite adept at ‘the big stuff’ themselves. One of the other bands even sports a confetti machine!⁣
⁣
So how will it go? How will these songs fly in a bigger space in front of crowd being treated to the bombast and spectacle of not just one major show, but a parade of major league acts? Before any of that can happen though, there’s another, completely invisible set of hurdles quite literally backstage… The show runs on a rotating turntable. One act’s crew getting ready on the back as another plays out front. When their time’s up, the turntable revolves and the next act is up right away.⁣
⁣
This means we have 20 minutes to set up a string section, choir, brass troupe, grand piano and very complex set of band gear. Given that we had almost two full days to set all of this up in Jordan, this could quite easily become a very public disaster.⁣
⁣
However, there’s many years of hard won experience in the Coldplay crew - so somewhat miraculously, when the final confirmation that we have everything working comes down, it is followed by a comms shout of “alright everyone, six minutes remaining”. The turntable revolves and the show begins, the strings herald Sunrise and the mood of the room is captured and focussed. The anticipation bursts into a spirited Orphans and we’re off to the races. ⁣
⁣
Chris notes that the show was completely sold out before Coldplay were even announced, hence they were playing to an arena where not one single person had bought a ticket to see them. He thanks everyone politely for allowing them to ‘gatecrash the party’ and in a glorious rush of glorious tunes, it’s all over. ⁣
⁣
Afterwards, it’s unanimously agreed to have gone very well indeed. And joy of joys - our first day off to follow! That duvet won’t know what’s hit it….⁣

It’s hard to imagine we’re coming up to the last two performances of the Everyday Life album campaign when the recording process still seems so fresh in my memory -  but it has been such a wonderful process and I think we all feel proud to have done something different this time around. GB.

So good to be back playing with Femi and his band. Picture from rehearsals... 📷 @guyberryman.

It strikes me as I stand in @kroq’s backstage corridor that the size of the recent shows is not dissimilar to those they were doing when I started. ⁣
⁣
Back then, they were launching Rush Of Blood and one of the early runs was a ‘buzz tour’ in small venues around the US. It’s surprising how comfortably they’ve slipped into these different environments after getting comfortable at the bigger end of things.⁣
⁣
 I have to wonder whether the long years of honing their craft in little venues hasn’t paid off in how they’re able to conjure the magic without all the help of big props and production.⁣
⁣
Musically, it crackles and vibe-wise, Chris is able to reach out into the crowd to pull everyone into the show (improvising a happy birthday song to one, taking a soon-abandoned request for a very rare tune called Amsterdam from another).⁣
⁣
I’ve heard other groups talking of splitting up and re-forming a new band for each album - just with the same members.⁣
⁣
There’s something of a feel on these shows of a band free of its baggage going out to win the world over again - just like the fellas I met way back when.⁣
⁣
From the response I’ve seen, I reckon the exact same magic that got them from there to here is as strong as ever. Sometimes you *can* go back….⁣

For a while, there’s a concern that the trucks might not even be able to get close enough to the venue to get the gear in at @siriusxm. It’s a classic gallon-into-a-half pint pot scenario.
The whole venue is smaller than some of the dressing rooms on the stadium run. Hoppy is tuning guitars in the back corner of the room behind the crowd, The mountain of mixing desks and audio gear is out the back in a tent. 
On stage, the band are stripped of a lot of the toys that normally make up a Coldplay show.
Lucky then, that so many of the songs lend themselves to a ‘smaller’ approach. I think there’s also something about the stripped down approach with the crowd right in the band’s face that makes the whole thing that much more playful. 
There’s plenty of laughs, and some lovely moments hearing the songs breathe in the absence of the ‘bigger’ layers. 
Good to be back!
