Coldplay and Jay-Z are teaming up to ring in the New Year at Barclays Center.

The close friends rang in 2010 together at a Las Vegas show and Jay-Z recently appeared with Coldplay at the London 2012 Paralympic Games Closing Ceremony.

Coldplay will also play Barclays Center on Dec. 30, its first New York concert on the current “Mylo Xyloto” tour. Tickets for both shows go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday through Live Nation. The band will release “Live 2012,” a concert film and live album chronicling the current tour, on Nov. 19.
