Barclays Center will host two Coldplay shows to close out 2012. 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 in Brooklyn. The New Year’s Eve show will be preceded by an earlier show at Barclays Center on December 30. Naturally 7 will be the supporting act for the December 30 show. The two year-end dates mark Coldplay’s only remaining US shows for 2012. Additionally, Coldplay will play Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT on December 29th.
This will be the second time in two years that Coldplay has celebrated the new year with long-time 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. The two Brooklyn dates also mark the first shows that Coldplay has put on sale in NYC since September 2005.
