Live, U2 are far superior. I've seen Coldplay 6 times and they're good but not up to U2s level.

Coldplay - LP7: A Head Full of Dreams

They're one of the few acts that have put together a production for a tour as good as U2's. By that, I mean, MX was in the same ballpark as 360. Though, I think the stadium element really made 360 "larger than life," giving it the edge.

On Youtube you can find a 2006 Twisted Logic Toronto show that was recorded with the intention of being released, but never was for reasons that I don't know.

The best proshot footage of VLV Tour I can find is an MTV broadcast of one of the Tokyo shows.

I agree that something should've been released to showcase Coldplay's rise to prominence as a live band. Going from a small theater like venue on the 2003 DVD to the enormous Stade de France in 2012 definitely leaves some gaps. Although youtube really fills in the gaps for everybody.

Imagine after U2 had released Red Rocks in 1983 and then didn't release any live footage again until 1992's Zoo TV. That'd kind of leave you wondering "WTF happened?" That's kind of the same contrast Coldplay's live releases gave us.

Coldplay puts on a great performance, but for whatever reason they think that their headlining concerts are really just festival sets, cause they're wayyyyy too fucking short for a band that's been around as long as they have and with as many hits as they've had.

I've seen them three times... Once at Hammerstein Ballroom for a Viva las Vida promo, once at the Global Citizen's Festival, and one headlining show at Barclays Center. The headliner was barely longer than the festival and promo shows.

80 minutes? Really? The fuck out of here.

And for the prices they charge.

I wouldn't see them again on this tour, not with hating the last two albums. I did really enjoy the Mylo Xyloto show I saw (despite its frustrating length).

Sooooo Beyoncé will be joining Coldplay for halftime. This sort of sounds really stupid on Coldplay's part, and irritates me. Because it either means she's going to be taking the Coldplay out of Coldplay inside one of their classics, or we are getting Princess of China. Which is a good song in its own right, but also means we are getting one less of a classic.

We would be getting Hymn for the Weekend. Princess of China is with Rihanna.

I mean what if they don't play that one song? You're screwed...

But... it shows a band that isn't "safe" and "takes chances," regardless of what the crowd wants!

Lol I'm well aware that it's Rihanna. I haven't listened to too much of the new album, but I don't recall Beyoncé's part warranting a guest appearance. Princess of China was a really big song, and sort of gives that duet appeal.

Maybe I need to listen to Hymn again, but that's just my initial impression.

Hymn is the worst song they've ever recorded imo. They're blowing this opportunity during the SB to promote a new single.

Coldplay are dying a bloated death. It doesn't matter what songs they play at the Superbowl, creatively they're finished.

At least Mylo Xyloto and Ghost Stories had enough good songs that I wanted to hear those albums more than once. That's how I feel about it.
