On NOVEMBER 20th, CAPITOL will release COLDPLAY’s Live 2012, the band’s first concert film/live album in nine years. It documents the group’s Mylo Xyloto world tour, which has been seen by more than three million people since it began in June 2011.
The film was directed by PAUL DUGDALE, who helmed ADELE’s Live at the Royal Albert Hall and THE PRODIGY’S WORLDS On Fire concert films. Live 2012 includes footage from shows at PARIS’ STADE DE FRANCE, MONTREAL’s BELL CENTRE and last year’s PYRAMID STAGE headline performance at GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL.
COLDPLAY’s 2012 outing came in at No. 1 on BILLBOARD’s latest ranking of the year’s top-grossing tours.
Premium network EPIX will premiere the tour film as an EPIX Original Concert Event in the U.S. on TV, online at EpixHD.com and on EPIX apps.
COLDPLAY frontman CHRIS MARTIN said: "The Mylo Xyloto tour has been the most fun we've ever had as a band. It's felt very uplifting right from the start; partly because we are proud of the music, the LED wristbands, the pyrotechnics, the lasers and all of that stuff, but mainly because of the amazing audiences that we've been playing for. Over the years, our crowd has become more and more a part of the concert itself. They're loud, diverse, full of soul, and make the songs sound much better than we can on our own. We wanted to try to bottle the incredible feeling that they give us, and hence our concert film."
COLDPLAY has sold more than 50 million records worldwide and won numerous awards, including seven GRAMMYs, seven BRITs, six Q Awards and five MTV Video Music Awards. "Paradise," which won the VMA for Best Rock Video earlier this month, has 150 million views and more than 2.5 million downloads of the single have been sold.
