Coldplay To Rock Brooklyn On New Year's Eve

Coldplay have confirmed that they will ring in the new year with a concert at Brooklyn's newly opened Barclay's Center. Tickets for the event, which features the rockers co-headlining with their close friend Jay-Z, go on sale November 17.

Coldplay released a statement about the gig on their official website:

"We're pleased to announce that, on Monday, Dec. 31, Coldplay will round off a memorable year by performing a very special co-headline show with Jay-Z at Barclays Center, Brooklyn."

"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."
