Coldplay are to play an exclusive concert for Radio Two to be broadcast live by the BBC station.
The Parlophone act have agreed to perform at the BBC Radio Theatre in London on Saturday, August 30 when they will perform tracks from their current album Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends as well as other material. The concert, which will be broadcast live by the radio station between 7 and 8pm, is the latest tie-up between the band and the BBC for the new album. In June they performed a free concert at Brixton Academy under the Radio One Presents banner, while they also played for free outside BBC Television Centre.
The BBC Radio Theatre, which reopened last year following an extensive revamp, has already played host to a series of Radio Two concerts this year by acts including Neil Diamond and Radiohead.
