The band will pocket $1.6 Million to entertain moguls on Abu Dhabi
While most part us are enjoying our Christmas break and now are preparing our plans for New Year’s Eve, it looks like some of the biggest earners on show biz are getting ready to work and also to pocket big checks.
Coldplay was not going to be any less than Jay-Z or Kanye West, who will be welcoming the New Year almost $6 Million richer. The London-based band is performing at the Volvo Ocean Race venue in Abu Dhabi by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed and will make $1.6 million for the concert. Table tickets for the exclusive event cost £4,300, which includes car parking passes, champagne and spirits.
Jonny, one of the members, told The Sun newspaper: "I've never stayed anywhere like the hotel they put me in and probably never will again. It made Buckingham Palace look like a two-bed semi."
What plans do you have for NYE?
