By in November 13, 2013 • Filed in: Alerts, News & Rumors

Coldplay have announced they are once again putting on gig Under 1 Roof in aid of Kids Company, which works with vulnerable children and young people in London and Bristol.

The show takes place on Thursday, 19 December at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith, London.

Coldplay will be joined by Ricky Gervais’ current musical sideline: David Brent and Foregone Conclusion.

Lily Allen, Rizzle Kicks and magician Dynamo are also on the bill.

“Buying a ticket to this concert will guarantee two things: a totally unique never-to-be-repeated night of starspangled entertainment, and money in the Christmas coffers of a charity that brings love and happiness to London’s most vulnerable kids,” Chris Martin said.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Thursday (November 14).

It is the second time Coldplay have put on such a show – the first U1R took place in 2011, when the band played London’s O2 Arena alongside Steve Coogan as Alan Partridge, Tinie Tempah, Rob Brydon and Emeli Sandé. That show raised more than £400,000. [Source]

Coldplay’s ‘Mylo Xyloto’ Comic Book Series Goes Digital

By in April 18, 2013 • Filed in: News & Rumors

Coldplay announced on Tuesday the digital release of its “Mylo Xyloto” comic book series, based on the 2011 album of the same name.

Written by filmmaker Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda, The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie) with help from the British band, the six-part saga depicts an Orwellian society ruled by a supremacist government that controls the population via fear tactics and over-stimulation through media and propaganda. Issues 1-3 are now available exclusively via Apple’s iBookstore, with the rest of the series to be released monthly until July. Issue 1 is currently available for free as the iBookstore’s Book of the Week.

In conjunction, Coldplay has announced a special release for the upcoming April 20 Record Store Day that packages the “Mylo Xyloto” album (which has sold over six million copies) with Issue 1 and a special 7-inch vinyl picture disc featuring “Hurts Like Heaven” and “Us Against The World (Live).”

The Mylo comic books are published by Matt Groening’s celebrated Bongo Comics Group.

Coldplay is in good company among other band-branded graphic arts series. Indie artist Daniel Johnston has been a longtime comic artist and released the book Space Ducks last year. My Chemical Romance frontman’s Gerard Way’s Eisner Award-winning comic book The Umbrella Academy is currently being developed into a feature film by Universal.

Former Misfits frontman, Glenn Danzig, runs the mature-themed comic book company Verotik and with Henry Rollins is the subject of the hilarious unauthorized Henry & Glenn Forever comic. KISS have been the subject of comics since their inception in the ’70s, including a Marvel-published origin story that was supposedly printed using the band members’ blood. Tom Morello authored a saga of the heroine Orchid, a teenage prostitute in a post-apocalyptic society. And Amanda Palmer recently co-wrote the graphic novel Evelyn Evelyn about conjoined twins who, er, double as sideshow performers. [Source]
