‘COLDPLAY: GHOST STORIES’ TO AIR SUNDAY, MAY 18 AS BAND PRESENTS HIGHLY ANTICIPATED LATEST ALBUM

 

Hourlong Special Blends Recent Live Performance Footage

With 360-Degree Imagery

 

Superstar band Coldplay will present songs from its upcoming sixth album, Ghost Stories, in an hourlong special Sunday, May 18 (7 p.m. ET/PT) on NBC.

 

Titled “Coldplay: Ghost Stories,” the special will focus on the multi-Grammy Award-winning band’s latest album, which will be released worldwide May 19.

 

Directed by “Coldplay Live 2012” helmer Paul Dugdale, this in-the-round special — recorded in front of an 800-person audience in Los Angeles in March — will blend live-performance footage with cinematic film. Atmospheric projection will deliver awe-inspiring 360-degree imagery — around, above and below the band — while being woven into the overall filmed narrative.

 

The cutting-edge show is an immersive blend of light and video, dramatic staging and an intimate world-premiere performance.

 

In addition to the new single “Magic” from Ghost Stories, the setlist for the special will also include worldwide hits such as “Viva La Vida,” “Paradise” and “Clocks.”

 

The special was conceived by Coldplay, Paul Normandale and Misty Buckley.

 

A trailer for the special may be viewed now at Coldplay.com.
