    VEVO reveals dates for Coldplay’s Latin American Tour, announcement expected soon.
    1 October 2012
    On the 1st of October Vevo posted some dates of a probable upcoming Latin America Tour for early 2013.
    The tour was announced by the band a couple days after the leak of Vevo. Half November the tour was sadly enough going to be postponed for unknown reasons.

    A Latin American tour announcement moved a step closer last night as it appears that Vevo (a reputable source given that they control Coldplay's video channel on YouTube) revealed new tour dates online through their own website and mobile site. While the venues are the same as those previously rumoured back in mid-August, there are still discrepancies over the dates.

    There has been no official word yet on the exact dates, but the countries most likely to be host to potential concerts following this latest discovery are still expected to include Brazil (3 dates), Argentina, Uruguay and Chile. Peru seemed to have already been ruled out by a promoter recently. Hopefully we will get more more on any new dates soon - the 2010 tour in February/March of that year was announced almost six months earlier. -which means we are expecting an official announcement on the 2013 tour any day now.

    Hurts Like Heaven - New single

    We're pleased to report that the fifth and final single from Mylo Xyloto will be Hurts Like Heaven. The full video is coming on Monday - but you can watch the trailer now...

    Quote:
    Good afternoon, here is the brand new video for Hurts Like Heaven. It was directed by Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda, MORE, and the upcoming The Little Prince) and charts a graffiti gang's colourful but doomed rebellion against Major Minus and his oppressive regime. If you're in Germany, you can watch the video here.

    It is the prequel to the story of Mylo Xyloto which will be told via the six-part Mylo Xyloto comic series to be released monthly by Matt Groening's celebrated Bongo Comics from February 2013. The comic series is available to pre-order from today in the Coldplay Shop. Ten people who order the series (or the lithograph/series bundle) before November 30 will be randomly selected to receive a signed copy of the Issue One Comic-Con Variant Cover, signed by the band and its co-creator Mark Osborne.

    The illustrations for the video were done by Alejandro Fuentes with color by Steve Hamaker. Pascal Charrue and Arnaud Delord and all the gang at Fortiche did the graphics and Alexander Juhasz did the original storyboards.

    Some reactions from some Coldplayers.
    It's just a fucking ad. That's what's annoying about it. - Brent
    I was fine with it. Not as great as like ETIAW or something, but good. - Coldlocked
    For me the video is fine and the story is interesting (finally we discover the famous Car Kids, Silencers, Major Minus). It makes me want to read the comic. - Harondor
    I don't adore the video, but I really like it. It's a good concept. The ending with the baby Mylo is very very cute in my opinion. - M@r@

    Guys old photo project
    15 October 2012

    Quote:
    Hello. In 2010, I asked you to help me with a personal art project, by sending in old photographs. Some incredible photos were sent in from all over the world (a few of them are shown above). And now I'd like to see if you can help me to find any more.

    As before, they can be good photos, or completely out of focus. They can be black and white or colour. The point is that they are pictures dating back to the 1960s and before, that have been thrown away and found again - rather than your own old family photographs. Thanks for your help. I can't wait to see what you come up with this time.

    Original Mylo Xyloto artwork to be sold for Kids Company
    16 October 2012
    As we all know, Coldplay is the dearest band in this world. Selling their original Mylo wall emphasizes this again.

    :
    Quote:
    Coldplay and Paris are pleased to announce an exhibition of original Mylo Xyloto artwork to raise funds for Kids Company. The exhibition will run from 29 November to 2 December at Proud Galleries in Camden, London.

    The show will feature three original paintings on canvas by Coldplay and the band's Mylo Xyloto artwork collaborator Paris, as well as the original 7m X 2.5m graffiti wall that became the album artwork. A second wall painted by children from Kids Company and Paris will be displayed alongside Coldplay’s larger wall.

    Also at the exhibition will be three high-quality prints of the Mylo Xyloto album artwork (each a limited edition of 8 and signed by the band); three high-quality album artwork prints (each a limited edition of 650 and signed by Paris); and unseen photographs from the Mylo Xyloto world tour taken by Roadie #42. These prints have been produced by Album Artists.

    All of the work is for sale - both at the exhibition and online at Album Artists' website - with 100% of the proceeds going to Kids Company, a children’s charity which reaches out to over 17,000 vulnerable young people in the most deprived areas of London.

    The great wall was sold for 500,000

    Chris about his shoes: "These shoes come from the beginning of the Mylo xyloto album project. They are sort of homemade and I love them, and am proud to be asked to donate them to this wonderful cause,"
    The money goes to the Small Steps Project which provided aid to children forced to live and work on rubbish dumps around the world.

    This was the most awesome thing in October IMO. The announcement of Live 2012 to be streamed in cinemas. Live 2012 is awesome.

    Thanks for the review

    The rumours about a Latin America tour would've been a highlight if I didn't know now that the concerts were postponed.

    Thank you for a lovely review of October.

    I miss an "Us against the world" video for Oxfam option in the poll as I would definitely have voted for that one. The MX wall or Chris' shoes for charity - Mylo Xyloto's one year anniversary, the annoucnement of the Live 2012 to be shown in various cinemas were other good contenders. But US against the world wins. It is such a lovely song - glad that they chose that one for Oxfam.
