Coldplay’s Chris Martin plays impromptu gig at bar in Delhi – watch

The singer teamed up with Indian musician Vishal Dadlani for the 'jam' session

Coldplay frontman Chris Martin played a surprise gig on Wednesday (July 1) in the Indian capital of Delhi.

The singer was in the city with actress Frieda Pinto, supporting the Global Poverty Project. The pair had been with Indian musician Vishal Dadlani when they decided to stage an impromptu performance at the Summer House bar.

“We were at a dinner together, and he just went ‘let’s go play somewhere’! And, boom!” Dadlani explained on Twitter.

He added that the performance was “more jam, less gig. Chris did all the work, though. People were going apeshit.”
