Jay-Z and Coldplay to Stage Lavish New Years Eve Concert in Vegas

In an epic concert of the year, Jay-Z and Coldplay have announced they will perform together this New Years Eve for the extravagant opening of the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino Las Vegas.

Both acts will play separate, full sets before coming together for an unprecedented mash-up performance of rock and rap.

This isn’t the first time Jay-Z and Coldplay singer Chris Martin have taken the stage together. The pair may have hatched this plan last week after Martin made a widely reported guest appearance during Jay’s sold out Yankee Stadium show. The two have been friends for some time.
