Clearly, these guys only operate on a global scale: Coldplay will release their first live album and film in nine years — the aptly titled Coldplay Live 2012 — on November 19 … days after the film premieres in theaters around the world, and on smaller screens here in the States.
The “Live 2012″ film, which follows the band on their world tour in support of the Mylo Xyloto album, was directed by Paul Dugdale, who just last year helmed Adele’s “Live at the Royal Albert Hall” movie, and will play in theaters in more than 50 countries on Tuesday, November 13 … for screening information, or to purchase tickets, check out Coldplay’s official site.
The film — which features footage from Coldplay’s shows at Paris’ Stade de France, Montreal’s Bell Centre and their headlining set at the Glastonbury Festival’s Pyramid Stage — will also be broadcast here in the U.S. on Saturday, November 17 on cable network EPIX, as well as online through EPIXHD.com.
Then, finally, on November 19, Coldplay Live 2012 will hit stores on CD/DVD, Blu-ray/CD and digitally. That same day, the band will also release Mylo Xyloto Live, an “interactive audio-visual companion to the concert film,” through iTunes. Created especially for the iBookstore, it tells the inside story of Coldplay’s globe-spanning trek, complete with an interactive map, interviews with the band and exclusive behind-the-scenes photos and videos.
