Earlier this month Coldplay were joined on stage by Back to the Future star Michael J. Fox during their performance at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium. Shortly after, Fox could be seen playing with the band in fan filmed clip, but now Coldplay have shared professionally shot footage of the performance. You can watch it below.
The band introduced Fox with a video of frontman Chris Martin’s son Moses requesting that Coldplay play a song from his and his dad’s favorite movie: Back to the Future.
Fox then joined the band onstage, lending his guitar talents to renditions of two tracks from the movie’s famous ‘Under the Sea’ dance: The Penguins’ ‘Earth Angel’ and Chuck Berry’s ‘Johnny B. Goode’.
Martin and Fox have performed together before too, when the Coldplay star went on stage at the Michael J. Fox Foundation’s 2013 gala. There the pair played ‘Johnny B. Goode’ and Coldplay’s ‘Yellow’.
It’s been a busy year for covers and collaborations for the band, as they played Prince’s ‘Sometimes It Snows In April’ at their show at Telia Parken, Copenhagen, on July 6. There they were joined by their tour support, singer Lianne La Havas, who helped Chris Martin on vocals as well as playing guitar for the performance.
Coldplay also performed a duet with Prince Harry in support of the latter’s Aids charity last month. Coldplay headlined a show at Kensington Palace, which was staged to benefit Prince Harry’s Aids charity Sentebale. The end of the set saw Harry sing ‘Up&Up’ from Coldplay’s album ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’, alongside a 12-strong choir from Lesotho and Sentebale co-founder Prince Seeiso.
Princes Harry and Seeiso met during the former’s gap year in 2004 in Lesotho, where one in three children have a parent who has died from Aids or an Aids-related illness.
