HP Pavilion, San Jose
The members of Coldplay had been lurking around San Francisco for nearly a week, strolling over the Golden Gate Bridge and flying kites at Ocean Beach. On Friday, the band played the first of two shows at San Jose's HP Pavilion, bringing its new album, Mylo Xyloto, to the live stage in a confetti-filled storm of neon. The Pierces and Metronomy opened, and SF Weekly's Christopher Victorio sent back these pictures of the spectacle.
