We’re celebrating the release of #theButterflypackage documentary / concert film / live album (out Friday!), by sharing some classic #Coldplay live shots and accompanying tales from @millerworld, who’s been photographing the band since 2002… Mylo Air I remember early on during Mylo recording, Chris coming into the studio with a few (possibly four) of the watches he’s wearing here – all in different bright colours with the same chunky design. He explained that they were a reference point in how he wanted the album to feel. This certainly wasn’t the only one – there were many many things that went into the pot. It always used to make me smile though, noticing it in photos as I processed them. As a reference point for the feel of Coldplay’s live shows from Viva forwards I think this shot serves pretty well.
