Coldplay Breaks Record With Global Live Cinema Broadcast

British rock band Coldplay broke a record with their luminous show at the Buenos Aires’ River Plate stadium, broadcast live to cinemas in 81 countries worldwide—a record-breaking number of cinemas tuned in live to the event.

Coldplay’s Buenos Aires leg of their Music of the Spheres tour was broadcast for the cinemas on Oct. 28 and 29. According to The Numbers, the band’s broadcast topped last weekend’s charts in Argentina, Chile, Mexico, and The Netherlands, and the broadcast accumulated over $1.2 million in box office sales.

While Coldplay did perform some of their iconic hits like “Yellow,” “A Sky Full of Stars,” “The Scientist,” “Fix You,” “Viva La Vida,” and “My Universe,” what made the broadcast special was the first live performance of “The Astronaut,” featuring BTS member Jin.
Cinemagoers were also surprised with the same LED wristbands that actual concertgoers wore at the show.

BAFTA-winning and Grammy-nominated Paul Dugdale directed the broadcast, while CJ 4DPlex and Trafalgar Releasing executive produced.

“We are elated with the success of the broadcast, following our release of A Head Full of Dreams in 2018,” Marc Allenby, CEO of Trafalgar Releasing, said in a statement. “The band’s triumphant return to the stage in Buenos Aires, with the welcomed addition of Jin from BTS as a special guest, clearly resonated on a worldwide scale and once again proved the power of cinema to bring fans together. We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Coldplay team in 2023.”

The band has sold out shows all over Europe and Latin America. However, some shows in Latin America haven’t been sold out yet. As for tour dates for the United States, no dates have been set yet.

Coldplay’s fans will get another opportunity to see the concert in theaters in 2023.
