The four-piece concluded the tour in support of their seventh studio album – which was released back in December 2015 – with a show in Buenos Aires on November 15, 2017.
It was that very show in the Argentinian capital which was recorded for the new live album, which is made up of 24 tracks and marks the first time that a Coldplay gig has been released in its entirety.
The band’s earlier show in São Paulo on 8 November 2017 was captured for the aforementioned concert film. Both the film and the album will be released together as ‘The Butterfly Package’, and will be completed by the recently-announced ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’ documentary, which will air first on Amazon Prime.
The full ‘Butterfly Package’ will be released on December 7, and is available to pre-order now as a 2 x DVD / 2 x CD set and a 2 x DVD / 3 x gold vinyl collection.A 2 x CD edition of the ‘Live In Buenos Aires’ album will also be available for fans to buy.
In terms of a digital release, the ‘Live In Buenos Aires’ album will be available to stream and/or download from all platforms, with the ‘Live In São Paulo’ film will be available as a download only.
Earlier this week, Dua Lipa recounted how a “surreal” encounter with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin led to the writing of her 2017 track ‘Homesick’.
