Coldplay to Webcast Madrid Concert on YouTube, 10/26

It looks like Coldplay is the next artist to get featured on one of the free YouTube / VEVO webcasts that have been offered in the past with the likes of Arcade Fire and My Morning Jacket. This time the man sitting in the director’s chair will be Anton Corbijn…

Mr. Corbijn, the Dutch filmmaker and photographer, will direct the live Web broadcast of a concert performance by Coldplay, the British rock quartet, at the Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas in Madrid. The Webcast is the latest entry in the American Express Unstaged series, which has previously paired Terry Gilliam with Arcade Fire; David Lynch with Duran Duran; and Todd Haynes with My Morning Jacket. The Coldplay concert will be streamed live starting at 4 p.m. Eastern time on Oct. 26 at, and is presented in partnership with the video Web sites YouTube and VEVO. The companies were expected to announce the event on Thursday.
