Speaking from South Africa where the band is preparing for the "American Express Unstaged" performance with sold-out stadium shows in Cape Town and Johannesburg, lead singer Chris Martin said, "Anton Corbijn has been a big hero to us for a long long time so we're thrilled to be beaming this concert out to the world through his lens. We can't wait to share this experience with him and with all of our fans watching ‘American Express Unstaged' around the world. It's going to be big."
