Coldplay Announce Hollywood Palladium Show in Support of Reform LA Jails
The event will also feature performances by Boogie and Bobby Gonz.
In honor of their eighth studio album Everyday Life, Coldplay is hosting an intimate show at the Hollywood Palladium on Monday, January 20, a.k.a. Martin Luther King Day. The MLK Day concert is in support of Reform LA Jails, a movement campaigning for prison reform and advocating for alternatives to incarceration. Frontman Chris Martin has said the band is stepping back from extensive touring for environmental reasons, only playing a few gigs in support of the new record—so this might be the only chance you’ll have to see Coldplay live this year.
The Coldplay-headlining event will also feature performances by hip hop artist Boogie and rapper Bobby Gonz, plus guest speakers 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.
The band has partnered with Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan platform, and you can register for the onsale now through Wednesday, January 15 at 10 p.m. PST here. Registered fans who receive an invitation code will be able to purchase tickets on Friday, January 17 at 10 a.m. PST. For more information, go here.
