Mylo Xyloto

Our vacation continued after our trip to the beach. Two days later we went to the Coldplay concert at the Verizon Center. It's our third Coldplay concert and it was very memorable.

Ja gave me the tickets for Mother's Day and I was so excited for the month I had to wait to go. We got to sit in the 4th row thanks to Jacob. The handicap seating was the very first row! We couldn't sit right by him but the way the seats were set up there was only one row in between us and him. We were so close it was hard to believe. Throughout the show Chris Martin and other band members looked at and pointed down to Jacob. It was really nice.

Everyone in the audience was given a bracelet of a different color and at certain points in the show they would light up. It was very cool to see all the colored bracelets.

Another bonus of our seats was being 2 feet away from the band members as they walked past us. Ja took a video of them all walking past and even touched Chris Martin's shoulder.

The most exciting moment happened at the end of the concert. The drummer of the band, Will Champion, gave Jacob his drum sticks! That was very exciting. Jacob left the concert with a new Coldplay shirt, the song list, a signed photo of the band, and the drum sticks.
