The REM frontman duets with Chris Martin
Coldplay were joined by Michael Stipe at their show in Atlanta last night (September 28).
The R.E.M frontman duetted with Chris Martin onstage at the Philips Arena for a rendition of the track ‘Nightswimming’.
One fan told NME.COM: “Stipe got a huge standing ovation, and they couldn’t start the song for a minute or so because it was so loud. It was unbelievable.”
Before launching into the band’s untitled Johnny Cash tribute song – which was merged with ‘Ring Of Fire’ – the Coldplay frontman said that Cash was one of the great American singers, alongside Bob Dylan and Stipe.
Coldplay rounded off the night with ‘In My Place’ and ‘Fix You’.
The group’s US tour hits Virginia Beach’s Verizon Wireless Amphitheater tonight (September 29).
