Hmmmm so where do we think this will be? They play in Philadelphia on the 6th and then have a break until the 20th.

Probably somewhere on the East Coast like Washington DC or New York City!

I guess NYC unfortunately. I finally got semi excited they might come to the southeast USA for something like this but that's just silly to think they'd do it in Atlanta or something. They play NYC a lot so it's probably there.

The PATCH KNOWS EVERYTHING!

Coldplay To Play Live In Montauk?
Fans are already buzzing about a secret announcement that went viral.
East Hampton, NY

Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow may finally be officially divorced, but it doesn’t mean we won’t be seeing him around town during the family’s annual August vacation in Amagansett.

Sirius XM sent out a release today announcing Coldplay would be performing at a secret location for an invite-only show on August 7 — and fans are buzzing that it just may be happening on the East End of Long Island. And that’s because Martin is often spotted around town with his ex-Gwyneth and their two kids, Apple and Moses, at this time of the year. The concert will be available nationwide for SiriusXM subscribers on SiriusXM.

What adds fuel to the Hamptons being the optimum location is that Paltrow is scheduled to host the Hamptons Paddle & Party Pink 2016 charity event for breast cancer in Southampton on Aug. 6, the day before the secret show, so she will be in town to attend.
Some people are even buzzing that the Surf Lodge will be the venue. . . after all live music is back at the Lodge . . .Just keep an eye on Patch for any updates.

From The East Hampton Star:
Coldplay Coming, but Where?

The announcement Monday of an intimate concert by Coldplay on Aug. 7 at a "secret location" was accompanied by a poster picturing the band in front of a structure that appears to be the Montauk Lighthouse.

The invitation-only show will be sponsored by SiriusXM Radio, which is holding a contest for its subscribers to win tickets to the performance, which will be broadcast live on SiriusXM, as well as a trip for two to "New York," along with a hotel stay.

The announcement prompted speculation that the band would play at Montauk's Surf Lodge, which recently reinstated its concert series after a music license snafu delayed the start of its summer music season. But Steve Kasuba, a Surf Lodge spokesman, said Wednesday that the Coldplay show would not take place there; a band called Bob Moses is scheduled for that day.

Chris Martin, Coldplay's lead singer, has a connection to the area; he was married to Gwyneth Paltrow, and the couple bought a house in Amagansett. He and Ms. Paltrow separated several years ago and were recently divorced, but are often still seen together with their children.

The band is touring following the release of its most recent album, "A Head Full of Dreams."

I am thinking Stephen's Talkhouse in Amagansett. My cousins had a house out there for 35 some odd years and that's where we would go see bands but it is pretty small or The Boardy Barn in Hampton Bays. I love a mystery.

I assumed it was NYC because of the above but the word New York is in parenthesis. I guess they could shuttle them up to Cape Cod by ferry from some point in NY

Coldplay performing a secret show in the Hamptons

SiruisXM announced that the band would perform on Aug. 7 at a “secret location,” with songs from previous albums and their current “A Head Full of Dreams.”

A Sirius rep confirmed, “The location is in the Hamptons.” But, “we’ve discovered the hunt to determine the venue has turned into something like a Pokémon Go for adults. We are not revealing the exact location.”

Coldplay to play secret SiriusXM Hamptons concert
July 27, 2016 5:16 PM By Glenn Gamboa

Coldplay is heading to Long Island for a special concert for SiriusXM subscribers on Aug. 7.

But where exactly remains a mystery. “The private performance for SiriusXM will be in the Hamptons,” a spokeswoman for the radio company told Newsday, but declined to name an exact location.

Contest winners from around the country will attend the concert, which will air live on SiriusXM’s channel The Spectrum. The band is expected to play songs from throughout its career, including from its new album “A Head Full of Dreams.”

“This feels like the perfect time to play this special show for SiriusXM listeners,” Coldplay said in a statement. “Someone just needs to tell us the secret location and we’ll be there.”

The Hamptons is a good location for the show since singer Chris Martin spends a lot of his downtime there with his family.

“We couldn’t be more excited that Coldplay, one of the most acclaimed bands working today, will step away from its global tour playing stadiums and arenas to present an intimate event for SiriusXM at a special location,” Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM’s president and chief content officer, said in a statement.

Coldplay recently headlined two nights at MetLife Stadium on its current tour.

Given my recent bad luck with MetLife tickets, I don't expect to win by I am curious as to how and when winners will be announced. It's just over a week away.
