    Preview of the Ghost Stories launch : Coldplay's cinematic approach

    Ghost Stories launch : The day before the big release!


    The Ghost Stories launch : one moment we have all been waiting for since the Midnight video was bestowed upon us months ago which may seem like an eon for some! The new Coldplay album of 2014, Ghost Stories will finally be released on Parlophone records in North America and the UK on May 19th, with the album already released in Australia and in various European countries such as Austria and Belgium on Friday just gone.

    The tour will be more intimate than ever, in your living room!


    Chris Martin has gone on record to state during multiple interviews including the famous Zane Lowe interview that the band will not be touring further than the current intimate tour which is halfway through. Instead, as the album is more personal, the band's efforts were concentrated on the Ghost Stories film they recorded during the secret LA show in March. Coldplay originally wanted to tour the world with the same set used in the upcoming film/TV special which is U2 inspired with a very cinematic edge but as Chris explained, they simply cannot afford it. To give you an idea of the costs involved, It would take $4 million a night to tour with the same stage! To tour this twice would cost over the whole amount Coldplay spent (est $7 million) on Xylobands during the Mylo Xyloto tour in 2012
