Coldplay and The Killers Team Up For Charity

Coldplay’s Chris Martin

Coldplay and the Killers will play a joint gig February 18 in London for an elite group of 2,000 fans. Becoming one of them requires entering a lottery; winners will be allowed to buy a ticket for £50 (about $71).

All proceeds go to international charity network War Child, which aids children in war-torn countries. And it’s a promotion for the February 16 release of the album “War Child: Heroes,” a collection of 15 covers that include Beck doing Bob Dylan’s “Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat,” TV On The Radio doing David Bowie’s “Heroes” and Franz Ferdinand’s cover of the Blondie hit “Call Me.”

The lottery registration, in London, opens at 9 am January 30 GMT (that’s 1 am PST) and runs through February 3, with winners notified by February 6. The performances follow the 2009 BRIT Awards, with each band playing 45-minute sets at London venue Shepherd’s Bush Empire.
