No, Coldplay won’t be performing in Cyprus (yet) but the screening event on Wednesday is the closest fans will get right now. And for an insider look at the band’s journey, this will be where you want to be.
A Head Full of Dreams offers an in-depth and intimate portrait of the band’s spectacular rise from the backrooms of Camden pubs to selling out stadiums across the planet. At the heart of the story is the band’s unshakeable brotherhood which has endured through many highs and lows.
The film is helmed by Mat Whitecross (the director of Supersonic, the acclaimed 2016 Oasis documentary) who met the four friends at college in London before they’d even formed the band. From the very first rehearsal in a cramped student bedroom, Whitecross has been there to capture the music and the relationships on tape.
Whitecross has since directed many of the band’s most iconic videos (including Paradise, A Sky Full of Stars and Adventure of a Lifetime) and continued to document the band’s musical and personal evolution.
Using extensive unseen archives and behind-the-scenes and live footage A Head Full of Dreams sees the band reflect on their two decades together, from the very beginning at university, all the way to their global success. It was filmed during Coldplay’s record-breaking A Head Full Of Dreams Tour, which was certified as the third biggest tour of all time, playing to more than 5.5 million fans across the world.
So, Coldplay fans rejoice and head to Pantheon Theatre for an exclusive peak into the band’s legendary story.
