Coldplay at Jobing Tonight

Headed out to Coldplay tonight? Before you drive out to Jobing.com arena, arm yourself with some Coldplay criticism courtesy of our sister paper OC Weekly

OC Weekly Music Editor Albert Ching says:

"What might surprise the Coldplay haters is that, in concert, the band actually kind of rocks. Hits like 'The Scientist' and recent single 'Lost!' have given them a not-entirely-unfair reputation of being rather mellow. While the slow melancholy of those songs is (wisely) retained live, pieces like 'Clocks' and set-closer 'Yellow' (their breakthrough hit and the only song off Parachutes performed Tuesday) are louder and faster, establishing the band as rock stars and not shoegazers."
