With a string of number one singles and albums to their name, Coldplay are undoubtedly one of the biggest bands on the planet. So we’re thrilled that the group’s upcoming concert at the famous Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas in Madrid will be streamed live on YouTube for fans around the world to enjoy online.
The concert starts at 9pm (BST)/10pm CET on Wednesday, October 26, and will be available through Coldplay’s official YouTube channel.
Coldplay will be celebrating the release of their new album, “MYLO XYLOTO”, which features the singles “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall” and “Paradise”, and the concert will be directed by Anton Corbijn, the award-winning filmmaker and celebrated photographer famed for his masterful use of striking black-and-white imagery.
The concert marks the conclusion of American Express Unstaged, a six-part series of live events produced in collaboration with YouTube, Vevo and American Express. The five previous concerts have attracted more than 40 million views, with fans worldwide tuning in to watch live performances from the likes of Arcade Fire, John Legend & The Roots, and Duran Duran.
Because this is an open air concert, there’s a small danger that inclement weather might mean the concert is delayed or even cancelled. So put on your favourite Coldplay track and perform a sun dance!
