Justin Bieber, Sigrid and Coldplay are among the acts announced for Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball 2021.
Dubbed “the UK’s biggest Christmas party”, the annual event will return to The O2 Arena in London on December 11 and 12. Tickets go on sale at 9am GMT this Friday, November 5.
Today, organizers have revealed the line-up for the first night, which will see Justin Bieber deliver a European exclusive show. Coldplay are due to appear in the sub-headlining slot.
Also on the bill are Years & Years, Jax Jones, Clean Bandit, Becky Hill, Jesy Nelson and Mimi Webb. Elsewhere, there will be a performance from The Capital Weekender Live With MistaJam And Friends alongside Billen Ted, 220 KID & Riton.
“The long-awaited return of Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball with Barclaycard will see the biggest hit music artists take to the stage and we can’t wait,” said Ashley Tabor-King OBE, Founder & Executive President of Global.
“With global superstars and some of the hottest UK talent set to play the Ball this Christmas, we have another phenomenal weekend of live performances in store.”
The line-up for the Sunday edition of Jingle Bell Ball 2021 will be announced on Capital Breakfast With Roman Kemp from 8am GMT tomorrow, November 4. Capital VIPs and Barclaycard customers can access a ticket pre-sale from 9am GMT tomorrow.
Justin Bieber hasn’t played in the UK since he delivered a special acoustic set at London’s Indigo at The O2 in February 2020. Before that, he performed at Hyde Park’s British Summer Time in 2017. The singer’s latest album, Justice, arrived in March.
Coldplay, meanwhile, released their ninth record Music Of The Spheres last month (October 15).
The band’s supporting ‘Music Of The Spheres’ world tour has already sold more than one million tickets across Europe. The “eco-friendly jaunt”, which includes six dates at Wembley Stadium, was planned by X-Ray Touring booking agents Josh Javor and the late Steve Strange, who died last month.
The 20-date ‘Music Of The Spheres’ run kicks off on 2 July 2022. It will also take in US and Latin America, across 40 stadiums for dates which have completely sold out.
