Coldplay announce NBC special for May 18th

The band will debut tracks from their new album Ghost Stories

Superstar band Coldplay will present songs from its upcoming sixth album, Ghost Stories, in an hour long special Sunday, May 18th at 7 pm 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 19th.

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.
