London Dingwalls show for BBC Radio 2 announced 17 November 2011 12:31 pm Band to return to the venue of their 1998 show
Good afternoon. We're very pleased to announce that Coldplay will perform a special Christmas show at London's Dingwalls venue for BBC Radio 2 In Concert, which will be broadcast on Thursday, 15 December (having been recorded a few days earlier). The show will be broadcast on Radio 2, which you can listen to online worldwide. The performance will also be filmed and shown live via the Red Button and on the Radio 2 site, where it will be available to watch until 22 December.
The free tickets for the show will be given away via bbc.co.uk/radio2 from 24-28 November.
Dingwalls is the Camden venue which was hired by Coldplay's first manager (and now fifth member) Phil Harvey while he was still a student, for a Coldplay show on 25 May 1998. The money raised that night helped pay for the recording of the band's first release, The Safety EP.
