Coldplay sets ‘Ghost Stories Live 2014’ on CD/DVD Nov 24th

Coldplay has announced the release of a new concert film and live album, Ghost Stories Live 2014, on DVD/CD, and digital formats on November 24th. The album’s trailer is available below.

Filmed by Grammy-nominated director Paul Dugdale, the Ghost Stories Live 2014 film documents the band’s unique performance of the Ghost Stories album to a small handful of fans in March 2014, two months prior to the album’s release. Shot in a custom-built amphitheatre at Sony Studios, Los Angeles, the ground-breaking production sets the band’s performance against stunning 360-degree and overhead imagery.

“The Ghost Stories show at Sony Studios was a very special moment for our band,” states frontman Chris Martin. “The magic theatre built by our incredible crew with the 360 screens was literally a dream come true. And it was the first time anyone outside of our studio had heard the new songs. This film is basically our original vision for the Ghost Stories album.”

Parts of the performance were first broadcast in May 2014 as a Coldplay TV Special by major broadcasters around the world, including NBC in the US and Sky Arts in the UK (where the film has already been nominated for Best Live Coverage at this year’s UK Music Video Awards). But Ghost Stories Live 2014 is the first time that the performance has been sequenced as originally conceived: a visual representation of the Ghost Stories album.

The release also contains an exclusive Ghost Stories live album, with audio recorded at the band’s rapturously-received shows in London, Sydney, Paris, Cologne, New York and Los Angeles between April and July 2014.

The package is completed by eight music videos from the Ghost Stories era, including two never-before-seen films for B-sides “All Your Friends” and “Ghost Story” plus the exclusive Extended Director’s Cut of the “Magic” video (with a brand new cameo from Peter Fonda).

Ghost Stories Live 2014 is Coldplay’s first DVD release since the Grammy-nominated Live 2012 concert film.
