Coldplay will close out 2012 in the U.S., spending New Year’s Eve co-headlining a show with Jay-Z at Brooklyn’s Barclay’s Center.

The group, who will release “Live 2012,” a concert film/live album on Nov. 19, will headline Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., on Dec. 29 and then play Barclay’s Center solo on Dec. 30 before their date with Jay-Z the next night.

The New Year’s Eve extends the nice little bromance between Coldplay and Jay-Z: the two acts shared a bill in Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve 2010. More recently, Jay-Z joined Coldplay at the 2012 Paralympic Games Closing Ceremony in London.

Tickets for the Connecticut show go on sale Nov. 16, while the Brooklyn shows go on sale Nov. 17.
