Apparently eight shows earlier this fall weren’t enough for Jay-Z to play the brand-new Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn. The hometown product will team up with Coldplay for a special New Year’s Eve performance at the venue following Coldplay’s own headlining gig on the 30th.
This isn’t the only time the two global acts have paired up for a New Year’s show, as Coldplay and Jay-Z teamed up for a more intimate affair in Las Vegas on December 31, 2010. In addition to the two Brooklyn shows, Coldplay will also play Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. on the 29th.
According to Consequence of Sound, who had the scoop on this, tickets for the Brooklyn shows go on sale Saturday, Nov. 17th; while Uncasville ducats go on sale Friday, Nov. 16th.
