Ghost Stories Live 2014 is the fourth live album by the British alternative rock band Coldplay. It is a live recorded version of the band's sixth studio effort Ghost Stories, being released by Parlophone in the United Kingdom on 24 November 2014.[1] A DVD from one of the concerts that was filmed at Sony Studios, Los Angeles in March 2014, is included in the package.[2]

The performance was previously shown on NBC, however, it differs from the TV special, as it only includes performances of the songs from Ghost Stories, while the special featured only six songs from the album, with the other three being replaced by the band's previous hits "Clocks", "Viva la Vida" and "Paradise".[3][4]

It was filmed by director Paul Dugdale in a custom-built amphitheatre at Sony Studios, Los Angeles, according to the band's official website. The ground-breaking production sets the band's performance against 360-degree and overhead imagery.[5] The live recording of the album received a Best Music Film nomination at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards.[6]


"Always in My Head", "Midnight" and "A Sky Full of Stars" were recorded on 1–2 July 2014 at the Royal Albert Hall, London. "Magic" and "True Love" were recorded on 19 June 2014 at Enmore Theatre, Sydney. "Ink" was recorded on 28 May 2014 at Paris Casino, Paris. "Another's Arms" was recorded on 5 May 2014 at Beacon Theatre, New York City. "Oceans" was recorded on 25 April at E-Werk, Cologne. "O" was recorded on 19 May 2014 at Royce Hall, Los Angeles.
