Coldplay to beam concert around the world

Coldplay have teamed up with celebrated photographer-turned-filmmaker Anton Corbijn to turn an upcoming Spanish concert into a global event.

The group will livestream a 26 October (11) concert from Madrid on YouTube.com and they've selected Corbijn to direct the show as part of the online series American Express Unstaged.

The concert will take place two days after the band releases its latest album Mylo Xyloto.

Frontman Chris Martin quips, "Until we can come to a video as good as Single Ladies by Beyonce, 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."

Corbijn, who is best known for his work with Joy Division and Depeche Mode, has directed several Coldplay videos.
