Watch as Chris Martin and Eddie Vedder cover Patti Smith and Crowded House

Coldplay and Pearl Jam frontmen join forces at Global Citizen Festival

Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder shared the stage last night (September 24) at New York’s Global Citizen Festival.

The pair came together to perform three songs; Pearl Jam’s ‘Nothingman’, Crowded House’s ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’, and Patti Smith’s ‘People Have The Power’.

Taking place in Central Park, the festival also welcomed performances from Rihanna and Metallica, with hosts including actors Hugh Jackman and Neil Patrick Harris.

Eddie Vedder and his Pearl Jam bandmates duetted with Beyoncé during the 2015 Global Citizen Festival for a cover of ‘Redemption Song’ at the festival.

Meanwhile, Coldplay have just released a Blu-Ray edition of their album ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’ (September 23).

The release sees the album presented in 5.1 Surround Sound, which Coldplay’s producer says is the ultimate format for the album.

Rik Simpson, who co-produced ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’ with Stargate, said: “The album was always conceived by the band as a dreamlike, kaleidoscopic sweep of music so it was fantastic to be able to take it to its furthest conclusion with a trip into a surround-sound dreamscape.”
