Duration:
1 hour, 57 minutes
First broadcast:
Thursday 15 December 2011

Jo Whiley presents a very special gig from Coldplay. Radio 2 takes these global superstars back to Dingwalls in London; the very venue where a young Chris Martin and band were approached to sign a major record deal.

This exclusive concert was recorded earlier this month in front of a small audience of Radio 2 listeners. Jo Whiley chats to Coldplay before their gig which features some of their classic hits as well as songs from their new album Mylo Xyloto.

As well as listening to Coldplay's gig, you can also watch the concert on the BBC TV Red Button and via our website - bbc.co.uk/radio2 - for 7 days after broadcast.

Jo Whiley is also joined live in the studio by 15 year old singer Birdy who will be performing a couple of songs in this week's Support Slot. Plus Jo features all the live sessions on Radio 2 over the past week.
