Coldplay planning New Year's Eve concert in Las Vegas with Jay-Z

Coldplay and Jay-Z have reportedly agreed a multi-million dollar deal to play a concert together on New Year's Eve (31.12.10), at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas resort to see in 2011.

The event is being organised by celebrity party planner Colin Cowie and will be invite only with no tickets being put on general sale to the public. The show will see Jay Z and Chris Martin’s Coldplay perform separately and then together in a mash-up performance.

Guests will be treated to separate sets from Coldplay and Jay-Z before the two acts take to the stage together. Beyonce Knowles is also said to be planning to perform in Las Vegas on the same night so she can be with her husband to celebrate the landmark date.

A source told the New York Post newspaper: "Organizers have spent millions securing the acts. The word is that Beyonce is now looking for a Vegas New Year's gig so she will be in town with Jay."

Jay-Z and Coldplay have collaborated before on the track 'Lost +' which featured on the band's EP 'Prospekt's March'. The two acts performed the track together at the 2009 Grammy Awards and have toured together.

Chris and Jay-Z are also good friends with the rap star recently revealing the 'Yellow' singer's children, Apple and Moses, call him "Uncle Jay".

Jay-Z: Coldplay's Chris Martin like a 'brother from another mother'

It's traditional to spend New Year with friends and family and Jay-Z gets to do both this year - and gets paid for it - by performing in Las Vegas with Coldplay.

The US rapper has told Newsbeat that Coldplay's Chris Martin is his "brother from another mother," and admits he sees him as often as possible. "I see him more than my own brother," he admitted. "Actually, I do!"

Coldplay and Jay Z will play separate gigs, plus a joint performance, on 31 December at the new Cosmopolitan casino and resort in Las Vegas. The luxury complex is rumoured to have cost £2.5bn and only opened a few weeks ago with an ceremony that featured Killers frontman Brandon Flowers. The invitation-only New Year's event is sold out, and while Jay-Z admits the show is expensive he also says it'll be relatively intimate.

The lucky few in the audience will no doubt be keen to see Jay-Z and Chris Martin perform a track or two together. Luckily the pair have history. In 2006 they collaborated on the rapper's track Beach Chair, and again in 2008 for the Coldplay song Lost. They have also performed live together several times - in London, at the 2009 Grammy Awards, and at a gig to open the New York Yankees' stadium in September.

The hip hop mogul is also upbeat about the chances of recording a new collaboration with Chris Martin: "If he'll allow me", he told Newsbeat. The rapper called the British singer-songwriter "one of the geniuses of our generation."

"Any time you can collaborate with that sort of genius, you jump at the chance, I don't care who you are."

However, another duet with wife Beyonce could be different matter. It's been a while since Bonnie & Clyde reached number two in the UK chart in 2002, and Jay-Z says another hook-up could still be a long way off. "I don't think she'll allow me," Jay-Z admitted. "But we'll see! It's her music, it's always the person's choice. You can't just turn up at their door and say 'I want to be on track four'. Otherwise I would've been at Bono's house!"

Gwyneth Paltrow won't perform with Coldplay in Las Vegas

Gwyneth Paltrow has rubbished rumours suggesting she would perform with Coldplay at a lavish New Year's Eve event in Las Vegas.

The Oscar-winning actress's husband Chris Martin and his band are reputed to have been paid $1 million to play at the Cosmopolitan hotel's end of year celebrations.

A report in a US newspaper suggested the luxury hotel's guests may be treated to an added bonus in the form of an appearance onstage by Gwyneth.
However, her spokesman has now said: 'There's absolutely no truth (to the rumour).'
Gwyneth has made a move into the music world during 2010, recording tracks with the cast of Glee and for the soundtrack album of her movie Country Strong.

Fans who had hoped to get a rare glimpse of Gwyneth and Chris performing together will be disappointed, although the rest of the Cosmopolitan's bill should more than compensate for that.
Jay-Z is scheduled to play a solo set and then perform alongside Coldplay in front of 2,500 guests at the New Year's Eve party, which is rumoured to be costing the hotel $25 million to stage.

Like I said in the other thread, this best be a rumour. Otherwise I don't know what they're playing at.

Playing private gigs for rich people to make themselves richer....not good.
