Coldplay to broadcast Anton Corbijn directed gig around the world

Coldplay will perform at a special concert in Spain, which they will broadcast live to their fans around the world.

The 'Fix You' superstars are set to rock Madrid on October 26 and the entire show will be directed by photographer and filmmaker Anton Corbijn.

A statement on the band's website explains that the gig will be shown in no less than 22 countries and frontman Chris Martin explained:

"Anton Corbijn has been a big hero to us for a long long time so we're thrilled to be beaming this concert out to the world through his lens. We can’t wait to share this experience with him and with all of our fans watching ‘American Express Unstaged’ around the world. It's going to be big.” 

"Until we can come to a video as good as 'Single Ladies' by Beyoncé, we have to rely on just the meat and vegetables of playing songs live, and this is just a nice way of doing it for a few more people at once."

The performance will be available to watch on the band's official YouTube page at 9pm BST on October 26 and you can watch Coldplay's rendition of 'Paradise' on Live On Letterman here:
