Ghost Stories Live 2014 is the fourth live album and a concert film by the British alternative rock band Coldplay. The album, a live recorded version of the band's sixth studio album Ghost Stories, was released by Parlophone in the United Kingdom on 24 November 2014.[1] A DVD from one of the "Ghost Stories" concerts that was filmed at Sony Studios, Los Angeles in March 2014, is included with the Live CD.[2] The performance was previously shown on NBC, however it differs from the TV special as it only includes the performances of the songs from Ghost Stories and the NBC special only featured 6 songs from Ghost Stories and the previous hits, "Clocks", "Viva la Vida", and "Paradise".[3][4] According to the band's official website, it was filmed by Grammy Award-nominated director Paul Dugdale, in a custom-built amphitheatre at Sony Studios, Los Angeles, the ground-breaking production sets the band's performance against stunning 360-degree and overhead imagery.[5]

It has been nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Music Film category.[6][7]
