When we recorded Coldplay for their second episode of Austin City Limits, we knew we had a special show on our hands. So we decided to expand our usual 60-minute show into a 90-minute special to celebrate New Year’s Eve, and we‘re thrilled to share the entire show – airing this December 31st at 11 p.m. – with the world. That’s right – the entire show, with no songs cut. There were a few nips and tucks in editing, of course, as there always are. But every song on the setlist is included, from the quintessential hits “Viva La Vida,” “Clocks” and “Yellow” to new classics “Paradise,” “Charlie Brown” and “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall.” And since this is a New Year’s Eve celebration, you’ll want to stick around until midnight for the traditional NYE countdown. (Not that you’ll want to change channels before then. Or afterward, for that matter.)
Check out the episode page for more details – pics, setlist, etc. Visit our Facebook and Twitter pages to leave comments on the show, not to mention catch up with the latest doings in ACL world. (You can sign up for the newsletter for the latter as well.) Visit our Tumblr blog for a photographic trip down memory lane. Next week: another new episode, featuring The Head and The Heart and Gomez.
