Coldplay Live 2012 – the band’s first concert film/live album in nine years – will be released worldwide on Monday, November 19. Fans will have two opportunities to get a sneak preview of the film, which Mojo awarded four stars. Coldplay Live 2012 will receive a special one-night-only release in cinemas around the world. Theatres in more than 50 countries will screen the full feature length film on the evening of Tuesday, November 13. EMI/Parlophone and Arts Alliance Media have teamed up with Screenvision, a national leader in cinema advertising sales, services and content distribution, to bring the film to U.S. cinemas. The trailer for the film can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EB-NbV4JTjU. Confirmed listings and links to purchase tickets can be found at http://www.coldplay.com/cinema.

Director Paul Dugdale, who helmed Adele’s Live at the Royal Albert Hall and The Prodigy’s World’s On Fire concert films, noted: “Seeing this film on the big screen highlights the epic scale of the concerts, and I’m thrilled that fans can experience Coldplay Live 2012 in fantastic visual quality with incredible sound, in cinemas full of fans. With insight from the band and a glimpse of what life on the road with Coldplay is like, this is a unique opportunity to witness Coldplay in all its cinematic glory on the big screen.”

On Saturday, November 17, premium network EPIX will premiere the tour film as an EPIX Original Concert Event in the U.S. on TV, online at EpixHD.com, and on EPIX apps on hundreds of devices including Xbox consoles, iPads, iPhones, Roku players and more. Fans can see a preview of the special at http://youtu.be/2mojkUgs038.

The JA Digital production for EMI/Parlophone documents Coldplay’s acclaimed Mylo Xyloto world tour, which has been seen by more than three million people since it began in June 2011. Coldplay Live 2012 includes footage from the band’s shows at Paris’s Stade de France, Montreal’s Bell Centre and last year’s triumphant Pyramid Stage headline performance at Glastonbury Festival.

Coldplay’s Chris Martin said of the film: “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.”

“Retina-scorching rendering of Mylo Xyloto tour, both big and clever,” was how Mojo summed up Coldplay Live 2012, awarding it four stars. NME.com praised the film for providing a well-rounded portrait of Coldplay as a live act, noting: “they’re a band that puts the effort in and delivers onstage.”

Coldplay Live 2012 will be available in the U.S. on CD/DVD, Blu-ray/CD and digitally beginning Monday, November 19. It can be pre-ordered now from the Coldplay Music Store (www.merchdirect.com/coldplay) or Amazon (http://smarturl.it/coldplaylive2012). The band will also release Mylo Xyloto Live, an interactive audio-visual companion to the concert film, on November 19 on iTunes. Created especially for the iBookstore, the Mylo Xyloto Live eBook tells the inside story of Coldplay’s world tour and can be pre-ordered now.

In September, Billboard named Coldplay’s 2012 outing the year’s top-grossing tour to date. The band has sold more than 50 million records worldwide and won numerous awards, including seven GRAMMY®s, seven BRITs, six Q Awards and five MTV Video Music Awards. Coldplay’s latest album, Mylo Xyloto, topped the charts in 34 countries, including the U.S. and the U.K.
