Hi hi hi!
Yesterday night was The Global Citizen Festival in Mumbai. Back in September when tickets were being sold, my dad and I tried are hardest to get them but couldn’t and I was completely and fully heartbroken. And then on Tuesday of this week, I won tickets to the festival! All throughout when I wasn’t going to go I tried to convince myself saying that Coldplay will probably just perform a few songs, or perform for a few minutes, but in reality, I knew If I didn’t end up going I would cry and die and then cry again.
But I went for it! And it was the greatest experience of my life. A life changing experience. A once in a lifetime kind of a thing. An experience I strongly believe everyone needs to live through atleast once in their lives, and then twice, and then thrice and then spend all your life’s earnings on it.
The Festival started at 1:30 PM and Coldplay came at 8:30 PM, but God I’d be lying straight if I said it wasn’t all worth it. There were a few other artists and performers that I was super excited about, but no one that could compare to Coldplay.
The Vamps performed as well and I LOVED watching their cute little faces all over again. My three favourite members of The East India Comedy performed and I love seeing their faces again as well! And then Coldplay performed and my life can’t honestly get any better.
They sang for two hours. TWO HOURS. They gave us a proper concert and I cried at various parts some of which included when Fix You ended, when Chris Martin sang in Hindi! (went to Heaven and came back!), and when they sang A Sky Full of Stars.
I jumped and sang and screamed and recorded and took pictures and LOVED, LOVED it to another level. 90% I have no words to describe the feeling this brilliant feeling that this brilliant band gives me every single time they sing. I knew I would cry and I cried. And I was right when I said I couldn’t go without not watching them live and them breaking up. I’d rather die than watch Coldplay break up.
They sang every single song I’d dreamed of listening to live and I can’t wait to go again. My only single regret was that my brother couldn’t come because I would’ve given anything to make him experience this with me.
Nothing in my life will ever live up to a Coldplay concert which why I strongly think everyone on this planet needs to watch them. And if you’re not a Coldplay fan I don’t know why you exist, go review your life choices.
I had the best, best, best night of my life and I don’t think I’d even forget it.
