Of course we weren't implying anything sexual with that slightly misleading title! Who do you think we are? Sarcastic 20somethings with nothing better to do than poke fun at bands that aren't as good as they once were!? Sheesh.

Anyway, the two bands have recently announced a one off show together at London's 02 Shepherds Bush Empire in aid of War Child Charity.

The gig kicks off on February 18th immediately after the BRIT Awards where the two bands will play forty-five minute sets each (With some dual on stage sing-a-longs no doubt).

Tickets are limited to just two per person and if you thought it'd be as easy as just grabbing a pair on-line then think again. Firstly, you have to head over to the War Child Charity Website HERE where you will be asked to Register and are then entered into a Lottery based system. If you're lucky enough, you'll get picked and the tickets are then yours. Registration closes on February 3rd so if you're looking to go, I'd sign up as soon as possible as tickets are limited to just 2,000.

The two bands in question each wrote a short statement about the gig and also managed to lick each others bottoms a little in the process:

Coldplay: "In our eyes, War Child is one of the world's most important charities, and The Killers are one of our favourite bands, so playing this concert is an absolute pleasure for us."

The Killers: "Coldplay were one of the bands that gave us hope when we were just four boys in a garage. To share the stage with them for the War Child cause is an honour."

Get a room...
