Coldplay and Jay-Z for New Year’s Eve Las Vegas show

The invite-only gig will take place at the Cosmopolitan

Coldplay and Jay-Z have announced that they will play a special New Year’s Eve show in Las Vegas.

The gig will take place at the Cosmopolitan casino and resort, with both acts due to perform solo sets, before taking to the stage together, reports the Associated Press.

Despite being an invite-only affair, Cosmopolitan officials said earlier today (September 20) that the show would be broadcast on the hotel’s 65-foot marquee overlooking the Las Vegas Strip.

Earlier this month, Coldplay’s Chris Martin showcased a new song called ‘Wedding Bells’, at the unveiling of Apples’ new iPod and iTunes ‘Ping’.
