This is quite exciting news because Coldplay have announced new film, A Head Full of Dreams (#AHFODfilm), is coming very soon to Amazon Prime Video and will chart their 20 year history because filmmaker Mat Whitecross has literally been there since the beginning!
Whitecross, director of Supersonic (the acclaimed 2016 Oasis documentary and Coldplay videos for Paradise, A Sky Full Of Stars and Adventure Of A Lifetime) met the four friends at college in London, before they’d even formed the band. From the very first rehearsal in a cramped student bedroom, he’s been there to capture the music and the relationships on tape. This doc, A Head Full of Dreams, will feature extensive unseen archive, behind-the-scenes and live footage, alongside interviews as the band reflect upon their two decades together.
Filmed during Coldplay‘s record-breaking A Head Full Of Dreams Tour, the certified third biggest tour of all-time, the band played to more than 5.5 million fans across the world. All this news is both exciting and slightly worrying, because it now means I’ve been a fan since the start as well, including seeing them 4 times live (Including that 2002 Glasto gig) and on the tour that’s just completed as well!
Watch the really great trailer now:
The documentary release will be preceded by a special one-night showing of the film in collaboration with Trafalgar Releasing in more than 2,000 cinemas around the world, on Wednesday, November 14.
Tickets are on sale from Friday, October 19 from coldplay.film
ALSO… in conjunction with the launch of A Head Full of Dreams, the band will premiere three live tracks, available to stream only on Amazon Music from Friday 26 October. The tracks are:
- Stayin’ Alive (Live at Glastonbury) by Coldplay and Barry Gibb
- Us Against The World (Live in Leipzig)
