EDITORS’ NOTES

This live retelling of Coldplay’s intimate, electronic-influenced sixth album, Ghost Stories, shows the romantic superstars’ ability to connect even as they turn inward. Recorded in concert halls around the world, the occasion feels extra special, as the group celebrates with their enthusiastic and vocal audience. Frontman Chris Martin’s knack for audience connection gives renewed verve to the gentle “Magic,” and prompts a rousing sing-along to “Ink,” transforming it into a stadium-ready anthem. Here’s a rich document of the personal made communal.

A Special Era for Coldplay...

I will never understand why 'Ghost Stories' was met with so much hate from critics and fans alike. It really is a gorgeous album if you really listen to it with open ears. I'm so happy they are releasing this album in a live format. Chris Martin and company are absolute pros at performing live. And, the added bonus is the TV special, now seen in its entirety ("Midnight" finally!), a gorgeous visual realization of the music. The "Ghost Stories" era will probably go down as one of Coldplay's least-liked eras, but I for one, think it will always be one of their best.

Ghost Stories

I utterly ADORE the Ghost Stories album, and I could not be more pleased that this live version is happening! These songs sound even more spectacular live (which I didn’t think was possible). I especially love listening to Always In My Head and letting myself simply fall away and become enveloped by it. I understand why some people may have been turned off by the new style of this album at first, but you can’t deny that it is truly a masterpiece. I don’t care what the haters say, this album is fantastic. I have never seen Coldplay live before, but I’m really looking forward to getting out to a Ghost Stories concert once they (hopefully) go on a full tour next year! Coldplay will always and forever be my favorite band!
