Abu Dhabi, November 27, 2011
British alternative rock band Coldplay will perform live on December 31 in Abu Dhabi, presented by the Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority (ADTA) and brought by Flash Entertainment.
Tickets for the band’s New Year’s Eve concert in the UAE capital will go on sale from midday tomorrow (November 28) at the company’s website.
Coldplay will perform adjacent to the purpose-built ‘Volvo Ocean Race Destination Village’ on the Corniche Breakwater, which from New Year’s Eve until January 14, 2012, will host the six-strong Volvo Ocean Race fleet, its sea-hardened sailors and the more than 100,000 expected fans.
The band’s previous performance in Abu Dhabi was to 20,000 fans in 2009, a statement from the company said.
Tickets start at Dh325 ($88.5) for general admission, Dh495 ($153) for grandstand seating and Dh695 ($189) for fan pit tickets.
The New Year’s Eve show will also offer fans a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ opportunity to see Coldplay up close, with a handful of Dh995 ($270.93) tickets granting early access to the fan pit 45 minutes before doors open, the statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
