[6-Dec-2011] Radio 2 Gig: Coldplay @ Dingwalls, London, UK (15-Dec-11 Broadcast Date) tickets availa


Recommended Posts

According to Music Week and Radio 2 chief Jeff Smith, Coldplay will play an intimate gig at Dingwalls on 15 December for Radio 2.

 

However Coldplay are scheduled to perform in Germany that day so...??

 

"Meanwhile, Music Week can today reveal that Coldplay’s In Concert special will take place at intimate London venue Dingwalls on Thursday, December 15 – a space the Oxford band first played in 1998 as they tried to fund their 2000 debut, Parachutes.

 

That will be followed on Thursday, December 22 by a Christmas special In Concert with Michael Bublé, with support from X Factor finalist Rebecca Ferguson.

 

“With Coldplay, it’s taking them back to kind of where they came from. Although it’s not their hometown, it will have the same feel as Elbow in Manchester,” said BBC Radio 2 and 6 Music head of music Jeff Smith.

 

“Michael Bublé will end this year’s season of 12 In Concert events. The pretext is that it will very much have a Christmas feel.”

 

Will Young will play Radio 2’s first December In Concert gig on the 1st of the month."

It could be that it's being broadcast on the 15th and recorded before, as the lovely Denise just pointed out to me. We'll see!

Good afternoon. We're very pleased to announce that Coldplay will perform a special Christmas show at London's Dingwalls venue for BBC Radio 2 In Concert on Thursday, 15 December. The show will be broadcast live on Radio 2 (which you can listen to online worldwide). The performance will also be filmed and shown live via the Red Button and on the Radio 2 site, where it will be available to watch until 22 December.

 

The free tickets for the show will be given away via bbc.co.uk/radio2 from 24-28 November.

 

Dingwalls is the Camden venue which was hired by Coldplay's first manager (and now fifth member) Phil Harvey while he was still a student, for a Coldplay show on 25 May 1998. The money raised that night helped pay for the recording of the Safety EP.

sometimes I think they've got a teleporter with all the travelling they've been doing, maybe they can use that! :lol:

 

:lol:

 

Maybe it'll be suspiciously dark and we won't really be able to see anyone's faces, just the sound of the band live (from Cologne) and Coldplay shaped people mincing about. :P

Coldplay to return to their roots

 

Coldplay are set to play an intimate gig at a venue where they first played 13 years ago, it has been announced.

 

The band, who are scheduled to perform a string of stadium dates next summer, will play Camden's Dingwalls venue next month in a free show for BBC Radio 2.

 

The group, fronted by Chris Martin, first played at the venue in May 1998, to raise money for the recording of the band's first release, The Safety EP.

 

The gig takes place on 6 December and will be broadcast a week later.

 

Flyers for the 1998 London show introduced the band as The Coldplay, with tickets costing just £4.

 

Two years later they released their debut album.

 

Since then Coldplay have had several chart-topping hits and played hundreds of sold-out concerts across the world.

 

Tickets to see the group on their stadium tour next summer, which go on sale tomorrow, will cost upwards of £49.50.

 

Meanwhile Radio 2 has announced that its annual Folk Awards is set to move to The Lowry in Salford next year, marking the first time the event has been staged outside London.

"... the free tickets will be given away..."

 

They don't really describe how they will be given away. First 500 callers? Enter your name in a hat a certain amount of time beforehand? People camping outside the BBC Radio studios for the longest amount of time? Hmmm...

All the time-turners were destroyed during the the battle of the Department of Mysteries in 1996. Maybe they made new ones :wacko:
