Mylo Xyloto Tour is the fifth concert tour by British band Coldplay. Launched in support of their fifth studio album Mylo Xyloto (2011), the tour began in October 2011 with a series of one-off concerts in Europe and festivals including Rock in Rio in Brazil. A full-production show began in December 2011 in the United Kingdom. It continued into 2012 with shows in North America, Europe and Oceania.

Background[edit]

After devoting the summer of 2011 to a promotional tour in Europe, the Americas and Africa,[2] the band announced the tour via their Twitter account in September 2011. Initial dates revealed shows in the UK, France, Germany and Belgium. A set of rehearsal shows were added for October and November, seeing the band partake in radio festivals and fan-exclusive gigs. Due to the demand, the band added additional shows in the UK. One of those dates is a concert at Dingwalls in London. Here, the band played several shows to help finance their debut album. Later in November, more dates were added in the UK, this time, playing stadiums in June 2012.[3] The shows in Manchester, Sunderland and London sold out in under two hours.[4] The tour kicked off with a live-streamed concert in Madrid. Each member of the band received £10.2 million after tax from the £118.4 million made.[5]

Broadcasts and recordings[edit]

The premiere concert in Madrid was streamed live on YouTube. Entitled, "Coldplay Live: Unstaged", the band performed songs from their new album alongside their previous hits. The concert aired on 26 October 2011. The show was not only streamed on YouTube but also in Times Square. Internet users were able to view exclusive content including a pre-show interview and footage from the band's soundcheck. Viewers were also able to select their camera view, spanning from "front of stage" to "aerial". The show was directed by Anton Corbijn and presented by American Express.[6] The live webcast is reported to have been viewed by nearly 20 million viewers.[7] Replay of the show on Vevo was viewed by nearly 8 million viewers.

The show at the UEA Large Common Room was broadcast on BBC Radio 1 on 27 October 2011. The band's concert at La Cigale was also live-streamed exclusively for views in Eastern Europe and Asia on Orange. The show at Dingwalls is also planned to air live on BBC Radio 2 on 15 December 2011.[8] The 1 June concert at the Emirates Stadium was broadcast on Absolute Radio.[9] Known as "Coldplay: Live at the Emitates", the full show was aired live and uninterrupted.[10] Before the program aired, DJ Geoff Lloyd hosted a special entities, "Coldplay Hometime Special". The set featured interviews with the bandmembers, alongside the band's hits.

A live album and concert film, entitled Coldplay Live 2012, were released in 2012.
