Arts Alliance Media will distribute concert film Coldplay Live 2012 into cinemas in more than 50 countries for a one-night-only screening on Nov 13.
The film is a JA Digital production for EMI/Parlophone. Paul Dugdale directs; his credits include Adele’s Live at the Royal Albert Hall and The Prodigy’s World’s On Fire.
The film documents Coldplay’s Mylo Xyloto world tour and includes footage from shows at Paris’s Stade de France, Montreal’s Bell Centre and last year’s triumphant Pyramid Stage headline performance at Glastonbury Festival. It marks the band’s first concert film/live album for nine years.
Coldplay’s Chris Martin said of the film: “The Mylo Xyloto tour has been the most fun we’ve ever had as a band.

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.
