This fall, Jay-Z helped introduce the brand-new Barclays Center, the home of Hov’s Brooklyn Nets and the New York Islanders, to the people with a series of shows. And now, as Kanye West foretold on “Big Brother”: “I told Jay I did a show with Coldplay. Next thing I know, he got a show with Coldplay.”
Jay-Z and Coldplay have rang in the New Year together in Las Vegas before with Kanye West, Beyoncé and others, and now they’ll come together again for the first ever New Year’s Eve show at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. So now, Brooklynites who always set high expectations for New Year’s Eve only to have them bitterly demolished when you realize you’re forever alone or you have to take care of your drunk friend or something else generally goes awry, here’s your thing to maybe overbuild your expectations about.
For a preview of what the NYE show may look like, here’s Jay-Z and Coldplay performing "Lost" together.
