Just learned in the news and found on their website:

Good morning. We're pleased to announce that Coldplay will be giving away a live CD, LeftRightLeftRightLeft, at every remaining live show in 2009 (apart from festival shows). Starting with the band's first North American tour date, at West Palm Beach in Florida on May 15th, every fan attending a show will be given a free copy of the nine-track CD, which won't be available elsewhere. Also on May 15th, LeftRightLeftRightLeft will be made available as a free download right here at Coldplay.com, for all fans (and for the same time period).

According to the band, the give-away is meant as a recession-busting mark of gratitude to everyone who's supported them: "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."


This is not only a nice thing to their fans, but also a good PR thing. There have been other bands who did similar stuff and they have been laughed at, but I am sure that there are enough fans out there that will also go to the shops and buy their CD, just because of the music and the fact that they offered it for free.

It is a good thing and I applaud it,

but at as much as $97.50 a ticket here in the Tampa Area,

giving out a couple of dollars (cost) CD is probably something most groups should do,

in my opinion.

I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

Been a fan of Coldplay since Parachutes so will be at their website on the 15th for sure.

Thanks for the info, Yo-Hi. :thumbsup:
