COLDPLAY GIVES TWO NEW SONGS

THEIR U.S. NETWORK TELEVISION DEBUT

TONIGHT ON ABC’S “JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE”

Show Will Broadcast Excerpts From Band’s Sold-Out Concert At UCLA, Presented By Samsung AT&T Summer Krush And

Benefiting The GRAMMY Foundation®

Coldplay Headlines Lollapalooza This Friday

Tonight Coldplay will play an intimate, sold-out concert at the Los Angeles Tennis Center at UCLA. “Jimmy Kimmel Live” will be on hand and will give two of Coldplay’s new songs their U.S. network television debut. The show airs on ABC at midnight/11 p.m. Central. Presented by Samsung AT&T Summer Krush, the proceeds from tonight’s concert will benefit the GRAMMY Foundation’s® GRAMMY in the Schools® (www.grammyintheschools.com) music education programs for high school students.

The band, which has played numerous international festivals this summer, will headline Lollapalooza at Chicago’s Grant Park this Friday, August 5. For eight hours each day, fans can live stream Lollapalooza on YouTube. The webcast of Coldplay’s set can be seen at www.youtube.com/lollapalooza at approximately 8:30 p.m. CT / 6:30 p.m. PT on August 5.

Coldplay’s recent Glastonbury set was broadcast live on VH1 and Palladia, marking the first time in the music festival’s 41-year history that an artist’s full concert was televised in the U.S. “Their gig was one of the best I’ve seen in the last ten years,” said The Sun. “The new songs fitted in seamlessly, while the big hits sent Worthy Farm into orbit.” “Coldplay understands how to make a shared moment from a song…their respect for their fans is obvious,” noted The Times of London while The Observer called the band’s set “faultless.”

“Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall” is now available as a digital EP on the iTunes Store. In addition to the title track, it includes two brand new songs – “Major Minus” and “Moving To Mars.” The physical CD single and limited edition 7” blue vinyl, which feature “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall” and “Major Minus,” are also available now. The video for “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall” has already received more than seven million plays. You can check it out at:
