Coldplay have been announced as the first act confirmed to perform at this year's Capital FM Summertime Ball in London.

 

The band, fronted by Chris Martin, will take to the stage at Wembley Stadium in London on 9th June 2012.

 

Coldplay have enjoyed a hugely successful 12 months following the release of their fifth album 'Mylo Xyloto', which included the singles 'Paradise', 'Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall' and 'Charlie Brown'.

 

As well as opening this year's BRIT Awards in London, the band are currently on a world tour in support of the album, and are due to play sold-out dates in the UK later this year.

 

The Summertime Ball 2012 line-up will also feature a host of some of the biggest names in music – with the rest of the acts ready to be announced later today.

 

Meanwhile, the band debuted a clip of their music video for 'Princess Of China', which features Bajan star Rihanna, on their current North American outing.

 

Tickets for the fourth edition of the event go on general sale on Monday (23rd April 2012) at 8am.

 

If you're a Capitalfm.com VIP or a Vodafone customer, you can get access to an exclusive tickets pre-sale now.

1.they could postpone the manchester june 9th show to a manchester june 11 show.
no chance

 

I'm guessing they'll open this concert during the daytime, hop into their LiTii chopper and head to Manchester to play in the evening, similar to what they did for Live8 and Glasgow in 2005. It couldn't get more simpler than that?

 

Marty you're not thinking 4th dimentionally!

Is this the best line-up ever? Katy Perry, Coldplay and Justin Bieber are confirmed for the Summertime Ball

They are joined by Usher, Flo Rida, Jessie J, Kelly Clarkson, Ed Sheeran and The Wanted for the annual Capital FM party

 

It might not be to everyone's taste but the Summertime Ball have just announced one of the most impressive line-ups ever.

 

Some of the biggest music stars on the planet will be performing at the Capital FM event - and they will undoubtedly be making diva requests backstage.

 

Katy Perry makes a special appearance just months after concluding her massive California Dreams world tour.

 

While Justin Bieber - who surprisingly is yet to hit number one in the UK singles chart - will also take to the stage.

 

Coldplay were also confirmed for the the event which takes place at Wembley Stadium on 9th June, and will host US superstars Usher, Flo Rida, Pitbull and Kelly Clarkson.

 

Additionally, Ed Sheeran, Example and Jessie J will also be performing alongside boyband The Wanted.

 

There's no sign of One Direction, though, after they foolishly thanked rival station BBC Radio 1 when receiving a Brit for the best single (What Makes Your Beautiful), as voted for by listeners of Capital FM.

 

Tickets for the fourth edition of the annual event go on general sale on Monday (23rd April) at 8am.

 

Alternatively, if you're a Capitalfm.com VIP or a Vodafone customer, you can get access to an exclusive tickets pre-sale now.
