It would appear that the East End will have a surprise musical guest performing early next month.
On Sunday, August 7, Amagansett’s Chris Martin and his Grammy Award-winning band Coldplay could be appearing for an exclusive, invitation-only performance at a currently undisclosed location somewhere in the Hamptons.
The band will be performing titles from throughout their career spanning two decades, including songs from their most recent album, A Head Full of Dreams.
Details have been wrapped up tight since the secret show was first announced, but when local fans noticed the initial advertisement featured Coldplay with the Montauk Lighthouse in the background, they deduce that the show would most likely be held on the East End. Could it be at The Surf Lodge? The venue has already played host to some serious talent, including Willie Nelson and Courtney Love, and they just got their live music permit back (for shows before 8 p.m.), but Bebel Gilberto and a band called Bob Moses are currently on the summer concert series schedule for that day at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m., respectively.
Wherever it end up occurring, the concert will be performed for SiriusXM, which will broadcast it on “The Spectrum” channel, along with the SiriusXM app on smartphones and siriusxm.com. SiriusXM is also giving users the chance to win tickets—as well as airfare, if needed, and hotel rooms—to the exclusive event.
With the performance just over a week away, the band’s website reveals that they are still on the prowl for a suitable venue. “This feels like the perfect time to play this special show for SiriusXM listeners,” the band says on their website. “Someone just needs to tell us the secret location and we’ll be there.”
With any luck, the show will be outdoors.
Martin, Coldplay’s frontman, was recently spotted at Amagansett’s Clam Bar with ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow and their two children, Apple and Moses, taking a break from his world tour to spend time with his kids.
