On December 1, Yahoo! will simultaneously premiere Coldplay's exclusive performance for the "Nissan Live Sets on Yahoo! Music" program in the US and 11 other countries including Spain, Canada, U.K., France, Italy, Mexico, Australia, Japan, Taiwan, Germany, New Zealand and US Espanol.
Taped in New York at the Hammerstein Ballroom, the private concert was filmed in front of 300 lucky Coldplay fans and is available only on Yahoo! Music. The exclusive performance features current and past hits as well as an intimate question and answer session with the band. The show's launch on Yahoo! Music immediately follows the November 25 release of Coldplay's "Prospekt March," a two-disc deluxe package that includes "Viva La Vida," the band's fourth full-length album, plus a new EP featuring six recently-completed songs that the band began recording during the "Viva La Vida" album sessions.
"There are only a few bands in the history of rock and roll that Yahoo! would roll out the global red carpet for and Coldplay is one of them," said Michael Spiegelman, head of Yahoo! Music. "Only a handful of fans got to see Coldplay's amazing performance for 'Nissan Live Sets on Yahoo Music!' live, but now we can share the Coldplay concert experience with the world. Viva la Coldplay!"
