On November 16, Coldplay will release Live 2012, the band's first concert film / live album for nine years. It documents their acclaimed Mylo Xyloto world tour, which has been seen by more than three million people since it began in June 2011 and wraps up in Australia this November.
The film was directed by Paul Dugdale, previously responsible for Adele's Live at the Royal Albert Hall and The Prodigy's Worlds On Fire concert films. 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 headline performance at Glastonbury 2011.
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.'
Live 2012 will be released by EMI on CD/DVD, DVD/CD, Blu-ray/CD and digitally. It is available to pre-order now.

Following the huge demand for tickets, Coldplay's international production manager flew into Australia and New Zealand to visit every show city and assess the venues and their respective seating arrangements to establish where more tickets could be made available for fans who had missed out. Since returning to the UK to meet with the management team to discuss his visit and review the band staging specifications, Chugg Entertainment can happily confirm that there are now new tickets available for all shows.
