Jay-Z and Coldplay Will Bring in the New Year Together at the Barclay Centre

Jay Z and Coldplay have announced that they'll be performing on the same stage come December 31st of this year in Brooklyn's Barclays Centre in New York, it was announced on Jay-Z's website Life and Times, yesterday.

Where are you going to be spending your NYE 2012/13? If you're not going to be at the Barclay's Centre in Brooklyn, NY then you know you're not having the best night possible as that's where Jay Z and Coldplay will be performing. While Jay's website dramatically sported a poster with the two act's names, plus the date and place, Coldplay's website was a touch more 'polite', issuing a statement with more information about the upcoming gig. "This will be the second time in two years that Coldplay has celebrated new year with long-term friend and collaborator JAY Z, the band having shared the bill with him at a Las Vegas concert in 2010. More recently, JAY Z performed onstage with Coldplay at the spectacular London 2012 Paralympic Games Closing Ceremony," they said. 

Almost unbelievably, "The two Brooklyn dates also mark the first Coldplay shows that have been put on sale in NYC since September 2005." Coldplay will also be playing two other shows before the NYE blowout, another at the Barclay centre on the 30th, and a futher date at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT on the 29th. Both of these earlier dates will be supported by Naturally 7 and will not feature Jay-Z. Tickets will be going on sale this Friday (16th Nov. 2012).
