Clear Channel Media and Entertainment Los Angeles announced that Coldplay will perform live at a special iHeartRadio Benefit Concert on Wednesday, February 8th. Proceeds from the show will benefit A Place Called Home and Youth Mentoring Connection, two Los Angeles based youth charities.
The iHeartRadio benefit concert will be presented by Clear Channel Media and Entertainment Los Angeles radio stations KIIS-FM, KYSR-FM “98-7fm” and KBIG-FM “MYFM.” The performance February 8th will be at Club Nokia at L.A. LIVE.
Coldplay, the seven time Grammy award winning group, is known for their activism and international charity work. The group released their fifth album, Mylo Xyloto, in October 2011 and also performed at the inaugural iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas.
“It’s a special scenario for the Los Angeles radio stations and iHeartRadio to have an opportunity to collaborate with Coldplay to support the work of two great local organizations that directly impact the LA community,” said John Ivey, Senior Vice President of Programming, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment. “Coldplay in this intimate setting will be an amazing experience for the audience, plus concert-goers will be helping support LA’s at-risk youth.”
Tickets will go on sale to KIIS-FM, 98-7fm and MYFM listener loyalty club members on Thursday, January 19, at 10 am PST and to the public on Friday, January 20, at 10 am PST on ticketmaster.com.
