To celebrate the release of their new album, Everyday Life, Coldplay have announced a special, intimate show at the Hollywood Palladium on Monday, Jan. 20.
The MLK Day concert will support Reform LA Jails, which campaigns for prison reform and advocates alternatives to incarceration.
The event will also feature performances by Compton hip-hop artist Boogie and upcoming rapper Bobby Gonz. The guest speakers will be Patrisse Cullors, founder of Reform LA Jails and co-founder of Black Lives Matter Global Network and actress America Ferrera, co-founder of Harness, which activates artists and activists to advance social justice.
To ensure tickets get into the hands of fans, not scalpers or bots, the band has partnered with Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan® platform. Fans can register for the sale now through Wednesday, Jan. 15 at 10 pm PT by signing up here. Registered fans who receive an invitation code will have access to purchase tickets on Friday, Jan. 17 at 10 am PT.
The show is in addition to the previously-announced, sold-out #CitiSoundVault show at The Hollywood Palladium on Jan. 21, in support of A New Way of Life, which provides housing and support to women rebuilding their lives after prison. The guest speakers that night will be A New Way Of Life founder Susan Burton and the actress and activist Natalie Portman.
On Wednesday, Jan. 15, Coldplay will give an exclusive acoustic performance for SiriusXM & Pandora at SiriusXM Hollywood. That afternoon, the band will also be guests on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Then, on Friday, Jan. 17, KROQ will host the band for an intimate show to celebrate the grand reopening of their HD Radio Soundspace. The following day Jan. 18, Coldplay will perform at iHeartRadio’s ALTer EGO at the LA Forum.
The album’s lead single, "Orphans," topped both Billboard’s Rock Airplay and Adult Alternative Songs charts, equalling the record for most Number Ones on the latter chart (with 13 across the band’s career).
