📡 HIGHER POWER MUSIC VIDEO OUT JUNE 8 📡

A Head Full of Dreams Film - In Cinemas Nov.14


Recommended Posts

Intriguing news... I wonder what he means by 96 mixes? LIke does that mean there are 7 live versions of AHFOD that he's trying to combine? Or is he literally referring to creating 96 mixes tnat they'll widdle down to 15?

 

I really hope we're in a for a huge surprise on this one.

 

Does anyone think we'll get updated "Remixes" of certain tracks? I mean, Coldplay has never really done this, but how cool would it be if we got demos/remixes of album tracks? LIke imagine the alternative, more rocky version of AHFOD, or a way more weird synthy version of Army of One? It'd be bad timing now with the death of Avicii, but I still really want to hear the non-avicii version of ASFOS! Feasibly they could use this live album as a celebration of their career and release a bunch old demos from other eras too!

I actually really like that idea. Would definitely be awesome if we got something like that. I'm going to be safe, not get my hopes up and say that they are combining mixes. But we will see...

One more thing just for the record. Live Nation shows are known to be released atleast a year/year and a half after the end of the tour and as of recently things have gone even longer than that. Madonna's MDNA Tour and Rebel Heart tour took much MUCH longer than what people here have been waiting for. Atleast don't get your hopes down for no reason, it IS going to come out.

Given that their shows have about 24 songs including interludes, perhaps there will be 4 different versions of the AHFOD concert, as in 4 times 24 songs equals 96 things to produce? Maybe 4 shows or locations perhaps.

 

More optimistically I’d love to see a full album of soundchecks this tour so we can hear things like HYPNOTISED (full band), AROBTTH (2003 to 2007 versión), Spies, Oceans, just to name a few songs that I know were soundchecked based on YouTube videos.

Your point is great ... but what about .... we will get 4 different versions / 4 concert legs ....

 

1. DVD - European Leg

2. DVD - Asian Leg

3. DVD - North American Leg

4. DVD - South/Latin American Leg

 

It's just guess but just think about it! :)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but just because 96 mixes are being produced, that doesn't mean we're definitely going to hear all 96, no? Didn't Viva la Vida (song, not album) have something like 20 different versions before the guys settled on the one that we got? And we've never heard any of the others . . .

 

Not to be a downer, as I would love to have a massive album like that, but that seems like such a monumental task for the guys and their team to pull off

I strongly believe it will be a mixture of multiple shows into a single edit, following the tradition of all recent Live Nation shows being released in that form.

I would agree with this. from a business decision standpoint there's no way the record company will produce and manufacture/press a bunch of DVDs/CDs of the same show from different locations. It simply will be too costly to do it that way. Now, if they want to make a bunch of other shows available digitally/streaming only with no physical product then that's another conversation. Perhaps they will attempt to develop a new way of product distribution with all of this - I don't know.

 

But I would caution about taking Rik Simpson's comments regarding "albums" and running with any assumptions. It could be nothing more than Simpson providing a set of different options (complete live show productions) to the band and the band selecting the production they like the best that will eventually become Live 2017. And perhaps there's so much material to work with that's causing the extended time delay - too many alternatives and going back to the drawing board as they swap song from this show for same song from another show, etc. I could see that being very time consuming as the band changes their collective mind time and time again.

That's a very good point. Basically he just has multiple versions of what will become Live 2017.

I guess another counterargument to my earlier point is that the shows have relatively similar setlists across the whole tour. Why make 4 of a very similar thing?

 

However, maybe there will be CD mixes of songs off 1 leg, and DVD mixes off another - that would get us 48?

That's what I'm thinking as well. They're working to see what "meshes" well.

 

At least the Clocks mix will be easy to figure out (if that song is included). It sounds exactly the same at every show *wink wink*

Hahah they have had "Clocks (Live 2017)" since 2016

I think release of the live album/movie is still a long-distance run for now. As I read the full interview, small chance they will release it anytime before Christmas.
