Coldplay Live at Rose Bowl Stadium 2016


I wasn't a big fan of Coldplay before I decided to go to their concert last night and was forever amazed and stunned by their performance. I think it's because I haven't really spending time listening to their music when I grow up personally (no offense to die hard fans of Coldplay :p). I decided to blast and keep re-playing my Spotify music to Coldplay's old famous hits and their newest album "A Head Full of Dreams" a week before the concert. Plus, I had just finished enjoying Adele's performance 2 weeks prior. 
I gotta say that this is one of the most festive concert or live performances I've ever been to. The colorful props, fireworks, and lights all around the stage last night made it worth watching and experiencing. 
The lead singer of the band, Chris Martin, admitted he snacked on banana in the morning of the scheduled show that he caused light burps here and there during beginning of his performances. But hey, we didn't even recognize that until he brought it up. His energy and the overall atmosphere was very powerful that the whole audience was singing and dancing along all night long.















 Sorry for the poor quality images of the band, since we weren't allowed to bring camera.

ADELE Live On Stage at Staples Center 2016

Hello...
I haven't been around lately (in the blogging world) because I am preoccupied with work and life.
Last night I got to tick off one of my bucket list regarding the artist I want to see perform live. It was the one and only, lovely, ADELE. It was my first time watching her live on stage. I didn't expect much because I know just her voice alone without any music or orchestra behind her performance is already enough for me to enjoy. Sam Smith and ADELE would be my most favorite singer/ artist alive on earth LOL ... (NOT being exaggerating, but I'm telling the truth)

The concert lasted about 2 hours where she showed up on the middle stage, right next to where I was sitting. Then 45% of the show was her joking around and talking about her life, her emotions, her experience, and her stories behind some of the music she wrote. I honestly think that she could be a humorous talk-show person if she decided to retire from her music career (NOT that I want it to happen anytime soon). I just feel like she has the potential to be funny, yet sincere at the same time. Her jokes were really entertaining to most of the audience at Staples Center last night. I believed everyone was having a great time.

Without further ado, here are some of the pictures and videos from last night:
PS: Keep scrolling down to see the epic finale of her concert last night. She left us bunch of notes with copies of her handwriting and checked out which note landed on my hand...





























 She literally bent down on the middle stage rotating around so that her fans can take / aim a selfie with her LOL 






 The coolest rain effect when she performed "SET FIRE TO THE RAIN." I feel like the technology they used is the same as The Rain Room at LACMA.
