Coldplay – The Scientist (Acoustic) @ Summer Sonic 08 Tokyo

by Ed Lau on August 11, 2008

I’ll write up a bit more tomorrow or the day after but Carl should be here any minute now so I don’t really have too much time.

Summer Sonic was a blast, though. People in Japan may seem polite and organized in everyday life but give them a rock concert and they’re crazy. I wish I had like…a motorcycle or something to take me between the venues since there were a few acts I would’ve liked to see but couldn’t due to time but I did catch The Ting Tings, Vampire Weekend, The Shoes, The Teenagers, Junkie XL, Boom Boom Satellite, Justice, Alicia Keys and Coldplay yesterday.

Here’s a video from the Coldplay set when they went into the crowd onto a little tiny platform and performed The Scientist with acoustic guitars.

The first voice you hear is the Japanese dude beside me. He doesn’t speak English and doesn’t know the lyrics so I told him if he wanted to sing along, I would post it on YouTube so he did with his terrible Engrish. The even more terrible “WOOoooooooO…” near the end is me, though. :)

Coldplay rocks… in an incredibly soothing kind of way. :)
