As part of the Samsung AT&T Summer Krush concert series, GRAMMY-winning rock band Coldplay will perform a concert on Aug. 3 at the Los Angeles Tennis Center on the UCLA campus, with net proceeds benefitting the GRAMMY Foundation's GRAMMY in the Schools education programs. The Foundation's programs includes the annual GRAMMY Camp, which is currently taking place in Los Angeles through July 18 and will feature its first-ever New York session from Aug. 2–8.

Coldplay — comprising Guy Berryman (bass), Jonny Buckland (lead guitar), Will Champion (drums), and Chris Martin (vocals/guitar/keyboards) — have sold more than 50 million records worldwide and won numerous awards, including seven GRAMMY Awards. Their 2008 album Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends spawned GRAMMY wins for Song Of The Year, Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals and Best Rock Album. Their latest single, "Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall," was released in June.

Tickets for the concert will go on sale July 15 at 10 a.m. PST at Ticketmaster.
