Coldplay announce immersive London event ‘The Atmospheres’

Next week's event, in association with Amazon Music, will take fans inside the band's new album 'Music Of The Spheres'

Coldplay have announced details of a two-day immersive event in London, dubbed ‘The Atmospheres’.

The event, which will take place next weekend (October 15-16) and comes in association with Amazon Music, will also be taking place in New York, Tokyo and Berlin.

A press release about the event states: “Inside the custom-built installation, fans will be transported to The Spheres – the distant solar system that plays host to the band’s latest album, where each of the twelve tracks is twinned with a different planet.

The event is said to “recreate the alien worlds at the heart of the album” and see fans able to “create their own alien language messages, snap selfies in the augmented reality photobooth, and even help to power the experience through bespoke kinetic walkways.”

Coldplay said: “We’re excited to partner with Amazon Music to bring Music of the Spheres to life. The Atmospheres will take fans on a trip through The Spheres and into the heart of the album.”

Fans can book a slot at the free London event, which takes place at Principal Place from 10am-8pm on Friday, October 15 and 9am-7pm the following day, here from tomorrow (October 8).
