Q.  Hello Oracle,
On Wikipedia Ghost Stories there are dates of concerts in Europe ... and this was true ?

Wikipedia mentions the band embarked on a tour - past tense. There were European dates (and elsewhere) last year (2014) so be mindful that any dates you see connected with Ghost Stories will have already happened.

Q.  Hey, I've always been a fan of the Ghost Stories album and I absolutely love the animations. Do you know which artist designed them? Also, do you happen to know the inspiration behind them ?

I don't know if you mean the inspiration behind the artwork or the animation but either way, it was the music.
The band commissioned Mila Furstova for the artwork and there were many discussions and ideas bounced around before giving Mila a lot of free reign to design and make her beautiful etchings.
You can read more about it here and here.
Trunk Animation took Mila's artwork and brought it to life in their incredible animation.

Q.  @anasshoumane via twitter
In the intro of AIMH and outro of O, before Apple starts singing Don't Ever Let Go, what is the choir singing?

It's not a choir; Apple and her friend Mabel sang (Moses Martin sang the reprise). For both Always In My Head and O the lyrics are:
Oh, don't ever let go. Don't ever let go.

Q.  Would you please share a download link to ALL the released handwritten lyrics sheets? I'm sure so many Coldplayers would love to have copies of them.

You must have missed that, Maedeh. Anchorman posted a news story back in May 2014 that led to a PDF of all the handwritten lyrics. Enjoy!

Q.  On the Ghost Stories Live 2014 DVD, are all the songs performed on the televised concert included, or just the Ghost Stories songs only?

If you scroll down the original news article that Anchorman posted on this site, you will see the full track listing.
It's not like the Live 2012 release, hence the specific name - Ghost Stories Live 2014.

Q.  Hey Oracle,
How many concerts did you attend while the band was touring for Ghost Stories ?


There weren't all that many shows on the GS tour but I was lucky enough to see 3 of the official tour dates (2 London and 1 Paris) plus the Radio 1's Big Weekend & the Radio 2 theatre show.
It's hard to believe it's just over a year since I watched their SXSW iTunes Festival show online in the middle of the night (UK time).

Q.  Mighty Oracle,
Why does the website say you can Ghost Stories on Google Play to celebrate it's third birthday when it's not even a year old?

Google's Play's 3rd birthday, not Ghost Stories!

Q.  Hi Oracle! I just recently flew on an Air Canada flight and they were showing the Ghost Stories live concert which was awesome. I noticed however that the upcoming CD/DVD doesn't include non-Ghost Stories tracks such as Clocks, Viva and others that were shown in the concert on the flight.. Do you know if they'll be releasing a full concert version later on? Thanks for your time! Cheers! Gareth

No. The TV special that was aired may be a slightly different version but the DVD that's been released is the only one planned - without the non-Ghost Stories tracks.

Q.  What did Madeon help in producing Always in my Head ?

When Chris was interviewed back in April, he revealed that Madeon suggested / came up with the final sound we hear on the track.
