Gwyneth Paltrow reportedly set to join Chris Martin on stage for New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas
Gwyneth Paltrow is reportedly set to join her husband Chris Martin on stage for a lavish New Year’s Eve party, according to MusicRooms today. The actress has been showing off her vocal skills recently after playing a singer in new movie Country Strong and has revealed she would consider releasing an album.
It has been claimed Gwyneth and Coldplay will perform at the launch of new hotel The Cosmopolitan, in Las Vegas, on December 31, and could be paid up to $1 million each. “To my knowledge, this is the biggest spend on New Year’s Eve – $25 million over the weekend for 4,000 guests,” Andrew Fox, CEO of newyearseve.com, which sells event tickets, told New York Post.
It appears Gwyneth and Coldplay won’t be the only high-profile acts on the bill. Hip-hop star Jay-Z and his wife Beyoncé Knowles – who are close friends with Gwyneth and Chris – are also rumoured to be performing a duet at the extravagant opening. Each act will also play solo sets, with performances broadcast on the hotel’s 65-foot marquee overlooking the Strip.
However, a spokesperson for the hotel insists the acts are yet to be announced and has denied the concert is set to break records. “Gwyneth and Beyoncé are not confirmed for any kind of performance at this point. It would be incorrect to use the number $25 million,” The Cosmopolitan representative added.
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. 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.
Chris Martin and Will Champion confirmed the show during the interview with Radio 1’s Fearne Cotton in the Live Lounge last week. You can discuss this event at the Coldplay Live forum now.
