Coldplay Returns to U.S. for Three Final 2012 Shows, Including New Year's Eve Concert with JAY Z
On Monday, December 31, Coldplay will round off a memorable year by performing a very special co-headline show with JAY Z at Barclays Center, Brooklyn.
The New Year's Eve show will be preceded by two headline shows for the band, at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT tonight, December 29 and at Barclays Center, Brooklyn on December 30. Naturally 7 will be the supporting act for tonight's December 29 and the 30th shows. The three year-end dates mark Coldplay's only remaining US shows for 2012.
This will be the second time in two years that Coldplay has celebrated the 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.
