COLDPLAY - ABBEY ROAD - and me!!!!!!! by Diamond on 12 February 2006 9:50pm
 
Well you could have knocked me over with a feather!!!!

I love coldplay the band and have seen them twice live in concert - so when the chance came up to win tickets to see them live and exclusive at abbey rd recording studios in london soon - i jumped at the chance of entering - it was a phone in competition on BBC Radio 2 so a national competition in the UK, i stumbled across the link on the web site while looking for info about something completely different !! i entered the comp and in so doing donated half the cost of the phone call to the charity CHILDLINE - which i thought a good cause - i promptly forgot all about it as i thought i would not win but the donation was worth while - YES WELL

on monday last week i had a phone call out of the blue asking for me by name - i thought oh no i dont want another phone or double glazing but stopped myself from saying so as the voice was so well spoken - they went on to say they were from Radio 2!! oh heck what was it - and then they said

YOU HAVE WON TWO TICKETS TO SEE COLDPLAY LIVE AND EXCLUSIVE AT ABBEY RD RECORDING STUDIOS LONDON!!!


like wow


you could have knocked me over with a feather - crikey - not only do i get to see such a great band in such an intimate studio but there will only be 150 of us at the concert recording! it is a live and exclusive recording of a radio 2 programme which will be aired on the radio in april this year - but no details as yet

I will let you know how things go and what the evening was like - i have chosen to take my son chris who is at uni in oxford - he is going to meet me in london after his lectures tomorrow - what an opportunity - AWESOME

apparently abbey rd studios have changed very little over the years since the beatles recorded there etc - there are instruments in side like the piano that paul mc cartney played on etc and they have a shop where you can buy memorabilia

i just have to have a photo of me on THAT zebra crossing!! i bought the abbey rd album on vinyl too!!

talk to you all when i get back

WOAH!!! When are you going?!
I think the phrase "you lucky, lucky bastard" sums this up quite nicely!!

George, you must get a grip. If you get Ovation on cable, they're playing (and repeating endlessly)a good show on Coldplay right now

Well, I don't know who's Coldplay either, but still: Congratulations, you lucky bastard! ;-)

Have a great time Lyn. The studio's have not changed because they are worried the acoustics will be affected. To be able to enter Abbey Road Studio's is the dream of millions of Beatle fans the world over.(I have been in twice) Enjoy the day!
