Coldplay, a band that plays with intense emotion and captivating energy, brings their first concert film and live album in nine years to theaters for one night only. Coldplay Live 2012 documents their much-admired Mylo Xyloto world tour, which has been seen by more than three million people since it began in June of 2011.
Directed by Paul Dugdale, Live 2012 includes footage from Coldplay’s shows at Paris’s Stade de France, Montreal’s Bell Centre and the band’s triumphant Pyramid Stage headlining performance at Glastonbury 2011.
Lead singer Chris Martin explains, “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.”
