Starting with their May 15th show in West Palm Beach, Florida, Coldplay will give all fans that attend a gig on their North American Viva la Vida summer tour a free live album, the band revealed on its Website. Fans who aren't holding tickets to any of those performances can get the nine-song collection, LeftRightLeftRightLeft, as a free download on the band's official Website starting May 15th. Physical copies of the album will only be available at Coldplay's concerts, however. The live album culls performances from several cities during the band's last year of touring and will be available only during its summer tour, which runs until August 9th.
"Playing live is what we love. This album is a thank you to our fans — the people who give us a reason to do it and make it happen," Coldplay said in a statement. Over half of LeftRightLeftRightLeft's track list draws from the both the band's Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends and their recent Prospekt's March EP. The collection is rounded out by their X&Y hits "Fix You" and "The Hardest Part' plus A Rush of Blood to the Head's "Clocks."
As Rock Daily previously reported, Coldplay are among the headliners locked in for this year's All Points Festival. Outside of the Joe Satriani lawsuit, things have been pretty quiet on the Coldplay front, even though the band reportedly reconvened with Viva producer Brian Eno recently to work on some new material.
