Default Coldplay: Live 2012 Review



Coldplay Live 2012 Blu-Ray

Coldplay Live 2012 Review

Coldplay had announced a new concert film/live album being released in November, called Coldplay Live 2012. The Blu-Ray will be a 2 disc Blu-Ray/CD set. You can preorder it now at EMI's site (which is European based). They're selling the Blu/CD by itself or with a lithograph.


Here's the announcement.

http://coldplay.com/newsdetail.php?id=1091

Spoilered for size:
[Show spoiler]

Good afternoon. We're very pleased to report that, on 19 November*, Coldplay will release Live 2012, the band’s first concert film / live album for nine years. It documents the Mylo Xyloto world tour, which has been seen by more than three million people since it began in June 2011.

Live 2012 will be released on DVD/CD, CD/DVD, Blu-ray & digitally. You can pre-order it now from the Coldplay Music Store, with an exclusive hand-numbered lithograph poster.

Said Chris: “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.”

In the US, premium network EPIX will premiere the tour film as an EPIX Original Concert Event in the U.S. on November 17, on TV, online at EpixHD.com, and on EPIX apps on hundreds of devices including Xbox consoles, iPads, iPhones, Roku players, and more.

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 last year’s triumphant Pyramid Stage headline performance at Glastonbury Festival.

Live 2012 director Paul Dugdale said: “We wanted to make a film that was as intimate as it was epic, punctuating Coldplay's colour-drenched performance with candid portraits of the band. The set is curated from several concerts around the globe, using the 75,000-capacity Stade de France as the backbone. Myself and JA Digital wanted to approach this film in the same way Coldplay approach their stage show: it’s essentially a film about people, and we wanted to highlight how the band have blurred the barrier between stage and audience to create a tour that reaches out to everyone from the front row of the stadium to those right at the back. It's a 90 minute kaleidoscope of emotions. My main objective as a filmmaker was to make the viewers' eyes widen and their hearts beat faster.”

* Full list of international release dates
14 November: Japan
16 November: Australia, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Finland, Norway, Ireland
19 November: UK, Rest of World
20 November: US, Canada, Italy, Spain

I have to get those too. As for the Mylo Xyloto tour, I would have went if Coldplay came to Pittsburgh. My first concert was the Viva La Vida tour and I loved it!

Wish this had The Scientist on it. I saw them on the Viva tour at Alpine Valley in Wisconsin and it was pretty spectacular. I'll be getting this and Led Zeppelin Celebration Day at the same time.

I will buy it mainly because I like the track listing, it has a good mix of older and newer songs.

Watched this in cinemas today and it was amazing. If anything, they have such a vast variety of great songs that there are bound to be favorites that are left out from the film/concert. Disappointed that The Scientist wasn't in the released version but glad it's an extra.

Bummed that my personal favorites such as The Hardest Part, Till Kingdom Come and Life in Technicolour weren't on the tracklist as I am sure they would have sounded great live.

Ohh and those people in Stade de France are really some lucky mofos to be able to experience them live with the visuals and all.
Setup: Sony 32'' LCD, Sony Playstation 3, Sony BDV-E800W 5.1 Wireless Blu-ray Home Theater system.

My budding movie-review blog. Do provide comments that would help me improve.

Yeah, I'm very glad to see The Scientist is included, even if it's not in the actual film. I would have loved to seen The Hardest Part, Swallowed in the sea, and strawberry swing as well but, I'm not *****ing. I'm sure this will be a fantastic release.

I edited the set list a bit because it looks like Rihanna is featured on Princess of China on the Blu-Ray.

Edit: I edited the page more to add the US link on this site.
