On November 20, Capitol Records will release Coldplay's Live 2012, the band's first concert film / live album in nine years. It documents the group's acclaimed Mylo Xyloto world tour, which has been seen by more than three million people since it began in June 2011. Premium network EPIX will premiere the tour film as an EPIX Original Concert Event in the U.S. on TV, online at EpixHD.com, and on EPIX apps on hundreds of devices including Xbox consoles, iPads, iPhones, Roku players, and more. You can check out the film's trailer and pre-order Live 2012 now at www.coldplay.com

The film was directed by Paul Dugdale, who helmed 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. Coldplay's 2012 outing came in at No. 1 on Billboard's latest ranking of the year's top-grossing tours.

Coldplay frontman Chris Martin said: "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."

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."

Live 2012will be available in the U.S. on CD/DVD, Blu-ray/CD and digitally.
