Gwyneth Paltrow won’t be duetting with Chris Martin in Las Vegas at New Year
Gwyneth Paltrow has rubbished rumours suggesting she would perform with Coldplay at a lavish New Year’s Eve event in Las Vegas. The 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.
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.
