Jay-Z uses Brut force

£250k bubbly bill at Coldplay gig


JAY-Z’s no fool after working out how to make a COLDPLAY gig more exciting.


Unfortunately for the average Joe, it involves a lot of expensive booze and about two or three nightclub changes.


The Jigga Man was on stage with CHRIS MARTIN and pals in New York last night to see in 2013.


And they did it in some style — downing around £250,000 of drink as they went along.


The concert — dubbed the Coldplay Holiday Party — was held at the Barclays Center, the home of the Brooklyn Nets basketball team owned by Jay-Z.


But guests — including GWYNETH PALTROW and BEYONCE — wouldn’t have been queuing at the bar because Jay-Z handled the entire bill.


CHERYL COLE and her dancer boyfriend TRE HOLLOWAY were also among the crowd, before they headed for the after-party later on.


And Jay-Z refused to hold back on the free bar, either. He had a private lounge — nicknamed The Vault — which was specially kitted out for the occasion.


Inside the VIP area was a wall created from hundreds of bottles of Armand de Brignac Brut Gold — worth more than £300 each.


Jay-Z also had a 30litre bottle of Armand de Brignac Midas Gold bubbly brought in for the night. It was more than 4ft high, weighed about 100kg and took two burly blokes to lift.


Before they could get stuck in to the booze, Jay-Z and Chris played to a sell-out crowd.


After finishing up at the Barclays Center, the rapper and 15 guests headed off to the Spotted Pig restaurant where they enjoyed some traditional British grub. They later went to his 40/40 club, which was open till 4am.


With a New Year’s Eve like that, there’ll be some sore heads this morning.
