Coldplay's Chris Martin covers Oasis at secret London pub gig - video
Singer also teams up with Simon Pegg at secret show
Coldplay frontman Chris Martin covered Oasis' 'Wonderwall' and played one of his own unreleased songs during a secret gig in a London pub last night (April 13).
The singer performed the track as a part of a three-song set for a benefit gig curated by comedy actor Simon Pegg, at the Boogaloo bar.
Watch fan-recorded footage of the performance below.
Martin kicked off his performance with an unreleased Coldplay song called 'Wedding Bells'. Although he has played the song live before, Martin confirmed that the track "is not going on our record", going on to describe it as "soppy".
Following the track, a girl in the crowd asked him to cover the Oasis' 1995 classic 'Wonderwall'.
"Fuck it, I'll do it," Martin replied. "But only if you do it with me." He then brought the audience member up onstage and performed the track.
The singer was then joined by Pegg on harmonica for 'A Rush Of Blood To The Head' track 'Green Eyes'.
Pegg had organised the gig as a tribute to Boogaloo regular John Parkhouse, who recently passed away.
