Coldplay And Jay-Z Team Up To Kick Off The New Year With Brooklyn Double Bill

According to reports, hip hop superstar Jay-Z and iconic British band Coldplay are scheduled to ring in the new year rocking at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York for a special New Year's eve concert.

The show will come after Jay-Z's eight-night stint opening the new Brooklyn Nets arena in September.

In addition to their scheduled new year's eve concert, Coldplay have also scheduled a December 29 date at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. Frontman Chris Martin and his group will also perform as a solo act at the Barclays Center on December 30th. Tickets for this year's New Year's Eve show are slated to go on sale Saturday, Nov. 17 at 10:00 a.m., EST.

Jay-Z and Martin, who aren't strangers when it comes to music collaborations, worked together on the song "Beach Chair" in 2006. They also celebrated New Year's together in the United Kingdom; Martin and Jay-Z performed at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas back in 2011.

So will you celebrate your New Year with "Jigga" Chris Martin? Check out video of the two performing below!
