PHOTOS: Coldplay @ ACL Fest 2011 (DAY ONE)

Coldplay was an unbelievable cool band to get to shoot. Seeing the band play “Yellow” and really kick up their stage theatrics was exactly what I had hoped to see and it came out in the second slot of the set. The crowd really ate it up and it was a clear juxtaposition to the Kanye West set that was about to start on the other side of the field about 15 minutes after the first notes from Coldplay were played.

Chris Martin is an absolute ham, too.
