Q. How did Coldplay play two New Years Eve shows on the same night one in Abu Dhabi and one in Austin TX?


The Oracle replies:

They didn't - well, not really. The band only physically appeared live in one place on Dec 31 2011 - Volvo Ocean Race Destination Village, Abu Dhabi.
They pre-recorded a concert on Septemeber 16 2001 in Austin for Austin City Limits that was broadcast on New Year's Eve.
