Highlights From Jay-Z & Coldplay’s New Year’s Eve 2013 Concert

Last night, Jiggaman got on his Frank Sinatra-ish to bring 2013 in style as he performed a special New Year’s Eve concert with Coldplay at Barclays Center. Along with Chris Martin’s wife Gwyneth Paltrow and their children in attendance, Christina Aguilera and One Direction’s Harry Styles were also in the place to be, to witness the first of many NYE’s concerts from Jay-Z & Coldplay.

“I came, I saw, I conquered” line from “Encore.” Afterward, he hinted that New Year’s Eve live in Brooklyn could become a tradition for him. “Our goal is to do this every year,” he said. “2014, you gonna rock with us?”

The sold-out crowd had arrived to Barclays Center in the borough, with the concert starting at 10pm, as Coldplay started the night performing a 15-song set. Jay would finally join the stage right before the ball dropped, going on to say,

“2012 was a major year for me, it was the birth of my beautiful daughter Blue, it was the birth of this building. Tonight I feel like I’m in the right place. I wish you the best 2013 possible. Peace and love.”

Then he gave the Brooklyn a non-stop 25-song set lasting until 1:30 in the am, to give fans their first great live show for 2013. Check after the jump to view some of performances from last nights show.
