I'm not sure if this is the correct forum to post this in, but at the Kansas City concert last night Chris announced that they were currently in the process of recording a live album that they plan to release in November.

He mentioned it because he told us they wanted to use the KC version of Us Against the World on it :p

Anyway--has there been any news of this yet? Am I late to the party or is this as much news to the rest of you as it was to me?

This is news to me, even though I saw it first on Instagram and Reddit first yesterday.

It was kinda expected so, in a sense it isn't news. But this was the first time someone directly related to the band actually said it.

Probably means the concert DVD/BluRay along with it :D

Oh that's great news! Let's hope they release all the rarer c-stage songs as bonus/extras :D

Chris also mentioned it in one of the Paris dates that they were filming again all the 3 concerts for a dvd

There've been rumours of a live album for quite a while especially since this album is so driven by its liver performances. But this is probably the first "official" news we've heard of it!

Unless someone comes up with another title for it, it's basically Live 2017 obviously. :p
I know exactly what you mean! Hahaha but I have a feeling it might not be as the tour did heavily run through 2016 as well. I know (most likely) none of the concerts from 2016 were recorded for anything but it might just be A Head Full Of Dreams Tour Live or something like that. They might even come up with an actual name for it! But yes, you're right. More than likely Live 2017 :p

What do you guys think the album art will look like? (Assuming its gonna be called Live 2017)

1) The flower of life but with live 2017 in the middle (like Live from Spotify)


2) A whole new Kaleidoscope with Live 2017 at the top left (like everglow single version)


3) A fusion of both 1 and 2 (like the Kaleidoscope EP album art)

Maybe it'll be similar to the 'scopes' R42 took for the Boston show? Or a live shot of the stage but Kaleidoscoped!

Maybe it'll be a shot of the stage being colorful with the fireworks and variety of colors going off while it's scoped.

I'm a big fan of the Live from Spotify cover, so I hope it will be something close to that. It has a similar feel to the artwork of Coldplay's earlier albums (i.e. a plain color background with a single image in the middle)

Personally I'm hoping it would be something like the front of the tour book- I always thought it would make a good album or EP cover.

I'm also hoping that the album is a double-disc so they can include the whole show and not cut out songs like they did for Live 2012.

I think the cover art won't be a real picture. Because Coldplay never used real pictures in their cover arts (at least not so realistic like Parachutes or Safety EP)

That would be really appreciated, altough since it will probably be a CD+DVD combo they won't add another CD.
