    Austin City Limits Taping: preview of Coldplay New Year's Eve airing in the US

    acllogo_1.jpgWhile Coldplay perform in Abu Dhabi on New Year's Eve there will be another show many Coldplayers will be looking forward to on the same day - the airing of the Austin City Limits Taping in the US. By the time the playback starts on PBS, Coldplay's entourage in the Middle East will already be waking up to their first breakfast of 2012. Below is the preview as written on the ACLTV website. We're not aware of any live streams yet of the show but keep an eye on the Multimedia forum for updates on recordings, where you can also download the preview and a full version of Paradise from the show now (discussion is also at the Coldplay forum too...)


    ACLTV continued: When we recorded Coldplay for their second episode of Austin City Limits, we knew we had a special show on our hands. So we decided to expand our usual 60-minute show into a 90-minute special to celebrate New Year’s Eve, and we‘re thrilled to share the entire show – airing this December 31st at 11 p.m. – with the world. That’s right – the entire show, with no songs cut. There were a few nips and tucks in editing, of course, as there always are. But every song on the setlist is included, from the quintessential hits “Viva La Vida,” “Clocks” and “Yellow” to new classics “Paradise,” “Charlie Brown” and “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall.” And since this is a New Year’s Eve celebration, you’ll want to stick around until midnight for the traditional NYE countdown. (Not that you’ll want to change channels before then. Or afterward, for that matter.)

    Check out the episode page for more details – pics, setlist, etc. Visit our Facebook and Twitter pages to leave comments on the show, not to mention catch up with the latest doings in ACL world. (You can sign up for the newsletter for the latter as well.) Visit our Tumblr blog for a photographic trip down memory lane. Next week: another new episode, featuring The Head and The Heart and Gomez.

    The new range of Coldplaying merchanise (unofficial of course to the official shop) has hit our stores, with our biggest range of goods so far. Prices are as low as they can be for a Cafepress shop so more people will be able to afford them. We don't take any profits for the sale of the merchandise as a result. Take a browse in one of the online stores nearest to you: UK | US | Canada | Australia | European (shipping is worldwide, but you can choose what currency to pay in) - simply alter the country dropdown menu at the top of the shop page.
