Jay-Z and Coldplay auction New Year's Eve gig tickets


Jay-Z and Coldplay are giving 10 lucky fans the chance to ring in 2013 in style by offering up a luxury suite at their New Year's Eve concert to raise money for charity.

Coldplay will hit the stage with the hip-hop superstar at the Barclays Center in New York on Monday, and they're auctioning the prize to raise money for the Downtown Brooklyn Neighborhood Alliance.

The highest bidder and nine guests will have the run of a suite in a prime spot at the side of the stage and will share the luxury box with other revelers.

Bidding on for the once-in-a-lifetime experience is expected to raise over $10,000 for the organization, which aims to create a vibrant community for locals of all income levels through the establishment of a health and wellness center.

The auction closes on Friday at noon ET. Jay-Z launched the Barclays Center in his native Brooklyn with eight sold-out concerts last September.
