On the Spanish message board on this topic http://coldplay.superforos.com/viewtopic.php?t=3032&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=15 some coldplayers say they have also listened something about 26 Oct date in Madrid in the Spanish Public Radiostation (Radio Nacional de Espa√Īa, Radio 3), where the radio mentions the Spanish newspaper "El Mundo" as their source...

Guess so, they did the same in Barcelona in 2008, official press conference and gig afterwards, I was there and it was such an amazing experience after waiting nearly 3 years to see them again.

 

They really love Spain, at least that's something since there's no tour date for you guys yet, hope some of you Spanish fans can go :nice:

great translation!!

 

Just posted it over Twitter! El Corte Inglés is the most important Spanish department stores!

 

I'm excited to know there will be available tickets on sale, but I guess with HIGH prices... hope they don't give them away like back in 2008 they did with viva la vida :/

 

YAY :D

the FM+ video has also been removed from YouTube. Looks like this one may have been pulled.

 

I get the distinct impression that the powers that be don't like the promoters advertising things before they're supposed to.....

Yeah, probably coldplay just wanted themselves to confirm it first, instead of the promoter. I personally wouldn't think it got cancelled, the webpage gave way too many details about the concert that wouldn't be there if it was just a rumour.

Coldplay visitar√°n Madrid en Octubre

 

Ya sab√©is que cuando subimos noticias a altas horas de la madrugada es porque el asunto es importante. Uno de los grandes grupos de esto de lo que hablamos se pasar√° por Madrid pr√≥ximamente en extra√Īas circunstancias, y os contamos.

 

Coldplay estar√°n el pr√≥ximo 26 de Octubre en la Plaza de Toros de las Ventas presentando mundialmente su nuevo disco, que como ya sab√©is llevar√° el t√≠tulo de ‚ÄúMylo Xyloto‚ÄĚ. El concierto, como decimos, ser√° la presentaci√≥n oficial del disco para todo el mundo dos d√≠as despu√©s de su salida al mercado, esto es el 24 de este mismo mes. El concierto, como parte de esta presentaci√≥n, ser√° retransmitido v√≠a streaming por Youtube, fruto de la colaboraci√≥n entre la p√°gina web de v√≠deos online, VEVO y American Express, tal como ocurri√≥ con la serie Unstaged protagonizada por Arcade Fire.

 

La banda brit√°nica ha elegido esta vez Madrid como escenario de esta presentaci√≥n que tendr√° como anfitri√≥n uno de esos lugares en los que tenemos infinitas ganas de ver un concierto, la plaza de toros de las Ventas, y que tantas veces hemos visto los m√°s j√≥venes en, por ejemplo, el concierto de AC/DC grabado en el mismo marco. Si quieres estar all√≠ debes saber que las entradas saldr√°n a la venta hoy d√≠a 7 de octubre y hasta el 9 en preventa para los clientes de American Express, patrocinador del evento. Si ‚Äď como es normal- no eres due√Īo de una de estas tarjetas. las entradas se pondr√°n a la venta para el p√ļblico general el pr√≥ximo lunes 10 de octubre a trav√©s de la red Ticketmaster. A√ļn no conocemos informaci√≥n sobre precios.

 

Por supuesto, decir que toda esta información la conocemos gracias al periodista Manuel Cuellar de El País que es el que se ha encontrado la cartelería anunciando, previa confirmación del grupo, el concierto de las Ventas.

Coldplay Live Concert Webcast to Be Directed by Anton Corbijn

 

By DAVE ITZKOFF

 

 

coldplay2-blog480.jpg

 

To add to a directorial r√©sum√© that includes films like ‚ÄúThe American‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúControl‚ÄĚ as well as music videos like U2‚Äôs ‚ÄúOne‚ÄĚ and Nirvana‚Äôs ‚ÄúHeart-Shaped Box,‚ÄĚ Anton Corbijn has found an assignment that he expects will keep him on his feet. ‚ÄúAnd afterwards,‚ÄĚ he said, ‚Äúon my back, probably.‚ÄĚ

 

Mr. Corbijn, the Dutch filmmaker and photographer, will direct the live Web broadcast of a concert performance by Coldplay, the British rock quartet, at the Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas in Madrid. The Webcast is the latest entry in the American Express Unstaged series, which has previously paired Terry Gilliam with Arcade Fire; David Lynch with Duran Duran; and Todd Haynes with My Morning Jacket. The Coldplay concert will be streamed live starting at 4 p.m. Eastern time on Oct. 26 at youtube.com/coldplayVEVO, and is presented in partnership with the video Web sites YouTube and VEVO. The companies were expected to announce the event on Thursday.

 

The concert, to promote Coldplay‚Äôs new album ‚ÄúMylo Xyloto,‚ÄĚ will put Mr. Corbijn in charge of 12 cameras that will be situated around Las Ventas, a famous Spanish bullfighting arena that has previously hosted performances by AC/DC and Radiohead. In a telephone interview, Mr. Corbijn described a recent visit to the bullring (‚ÄúMy star sign is Taurus, so I was a little hesitant going in there‚ÄĚ) and said it was a ‚Äúfantastic place‚ÄĚ for a rock concert.

 

‚ÄúUsually when you play to 15 or 20,000 people, the arenas tend to be elongated, and this is round and it‚Äôs very high up, so there‚Äôs a wall of people around you.‚ÄĚ Mr. Corbijn said, adding: ‚ÄúSpanish people tend to be very enthusiastic at concerts, and you get incredible energy from them. I would prefer it to Amsterdam.‚ÄĚ

 

Though Mr. Corbijn is perhaps most closely associated with Depeche Mode, the moody electronic rock band for whom he directed videos like ‚ÄúPersonal Jesus,‚ÄĚ he has also directed videos for Coldplay‚Äôs songs ‚ÄúViva La Vida‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúTalk,‚ÄĚ and said he finds Coldplay to be ‚Äúa very uplifting band.‚ÄĚ

 

Then again, he said, ‚ÄúI have such a love of good music, that I find even melancholic music uplifting. Maybe I‚Äôm a rare breed.‚ÄĚ

 

After the Coldplay concert (and perhaps a nice long nap), Mr. Corbijn says he is starting work on a film adaptation of ‚ÄúA Most Wanted Man,‚ÄĚ the John Le Carr√© novel about a mysterious man‚Äôs arrival in post-9/11 Hamburg.

 

He might also cross paths with the Coldplay front man Chris Martin at a gym they both frequent, although, Mr. Corbijn said, ‚ÄúThis makes it sound like I go to the gym every day. There was a period that I would at least go once a week. But not currently.‚ÄĚ

Can't wait for this. The Arcade Fire one directed from Madison Square Gardens by Terry Gilliam was FABULOUS. With the amazing Anton Corbijn on board this could be even better.
