Coldplay will headline a stunning New Year's Eve concert in the UAE, it has been confirmed.

Much like the multi-Grammy award-winning Brits did in 2011, they will take over the du Arena on Yas Island with their A Head Full Of Dreams Tour

Arguably one of the biggest bands in the world, the four boys from Britain, famously fronted by Chris Martin, have been travelling the world throughout the year, and wrap up in Australia midway through December.

Whether or not you dig the mostly morose refrains of British alternative rock, you can’t deny that Coldplay performing live will make you feel like the guys on stage are your mates. It has little to do with your parasocial fan-fervour, and more to do with that endearing, easy-going attitude which has them engaging the audience so well.

It will be the third time Coldplay have come to the UAE. Check out the pictures of the 2009 gig here.

In announcing the gig, organisers Flash confirmed anyone with a ticket to F1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will be available to avail a 20 percent discount on Coldplay tickets.
