Coldplay And Jay-Z Perform 'Run This Town' As They Welcome 2013 – Video

2 January 2013, 09:53

The 'Paradise' frontman Chris Martin joined the rapper for the track after leading the Brooklyn crowd through 'Auld Lang Syne'.

Coldplay helped Jay-Z ring in the new year as they performed a collaboration of the rapper's smash hit single 'Run This Town'.

The 'Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall' stars had earlier performed a set at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn as part of the special co-headline show in New York, and Chris Martin hit the stage to sing 'Auld Lang Syne' as the audience celebrated the start of 2013.

Following a performance of the traditional track, the artists launched into Jay's Rihanna and Kanye West featuring song.

"Happy new year," the US star declared before getting the arena bouncing along to the track.

Chris Martin was in a typically energetic mood as he moved around the stage and helping out with the track.

Jay-Z wore a long black leather vest-style jacket and a tuxedo for his performance with Chris also sporting an all-black outfit.

The '99 Problems' rapper had earlier joined the group for a performance of 2008 track 'Lost'.

Watch Jay-Z and Coldplay perform 'Run This Town' live from the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn together below: 

The artists were also seen on stage performing the track back in the summer of 2012 as Coldplay headlined the closing ceremony of the Paralympic Games in London.
