8 Nov – Malaysian moviegoers and fans of Coldplay will be able to join the rest of the world in watching the international premiere of "Coldplay Live 2012" in Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC) on 13 November, with tickets to go on sale starting Sunday, 11 November.
Screenings are limited to 7pm and 9pm at GSC Mid Valley, 7:30pm and 9:40pm at GSC 1 Utama and 8:10pm and 10:20pm at GSC Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. Tickets are priced at RM15 at GSC Mid Valley and GSC Pavilion Kuala Lumpur and RM13 at GSC 1 Utama.
The special one-night-only release of the concert film marks the British rock band's first concert film/live album for nine years since "Coldplay Live 2003". More than 50 countries will screen the full feature length film.
"Coldplay Live 2012" is directed by Paul Dugdale, previously responsible for "Adele's Live At The Royal Albert Hall" and The Prodigy's "World's On Fire" concert films. The film documents Coldplay's acclaimed Mylo Xyloto world tour, which has been seen by more than three million people since it began in June 2011, and includes footage from Coldplay's shows at Paris's Stade de France, Montreal's Bell Centre and Pyramid Stage headline performance at Glastonbury Festival.
According to the band's frontrunner, Chris Martin, "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."
He added, "We wanted to try to bottle the incredible feeling that they give us, and hence our concert film."
"Coldplay Live 2012" will also be released in Singapore on 13 November.
