Where do we go to draw the line?

This is Coldplay we are talking about.

So I went to a rock concert, and all I got was this: a t-shirt that is definitely too large for me. The smaller sizes were all sold out…

... oh, and the indisputable fact that I can finally say that I have seen them live, of course. If the band’s force is to be reckoned with, in the later years everyone would either have been to one of their concerts, or have not. And no one would want to belong to the latter category.

Besides, the five-hour journey down south is a little too much – even if I thought that one of the nation’s recognisable faces happened to be seated right behind me in the bus (“Eek, is she or is she not…?!”). Ironic. We see these people gracing the papers, and on the television; yet, when we see them right before us, we still can never be sure.

This is it. No more going to a neighbouring country just for events such as these (for this year, anyway). I will have to draw the line just about… here.

...

Uhm. Well, not unless their names happen to be Broken Social Scene or Wilco, I guess.

(I will need to have some concert kakis by then.)

  2. what’s even more surreal is people who go to concerts for reasons other than to listen to some live music.

  3. Eyeris – Hmph! You know, I’m always afraid that the singers will end up getting a sore throat or something before a concert…

    Soporific – Ah, but then again… it’s Coldplay.

  5. Soporific – Aiyah. Well, enjoy your next concert! I have developed a liking for the Esplanade…

  6. yes, esplanade, the place where everyone but a singaporean can go and perform.

  7. Soporific – Hmm, really? But there always seem to be so many activities going on at the Esplanade…
