Coldplay Concert to Benefit Youth Charities
Coldplay has proven themselves to be a pretty charitable group. They’ve contributed artwork to help Pencils for Promise build schools, and become patrons of the public interest environmental law organization, Client Earth.
Now, the band is teaming up with iHeartRadio and Clear Channel Media and Entertainment for a concert that will benefit two Los Angeles kids charities. According to Look to the Stars, the show on February 8 at Club Nokia will benefit A Place Called Home and Youth Mentoring Connection.
“It’s a special scenario for the Los Angeles radio stations and iHeartRadio to have an opportunity to collaborate with Coldplay to support the work of two great local organizations that directly impact the LA community. Coldplay in this intimate setting will be an amazing experience for the audience, plus concert-goers will be helping support LA’s at-risk youth,” said John Ivey, Senior Vice President of Clear Channel.
A Place Called Home provides education and arts to empower kids in South Central LA. Youth Mentoring Connection teams up adults as mentors with at-risk children. The radio stations presenting the concert, KIIS FM, 98-7fm and MYFM, sold advanced tickets to listeners yesterday, but tickets are available to the public through Ticketmaster starting today.
