Watch as Michael J. Fox joins Coldplay to play songs from Back to the Future

Fox and the band performed songs from the 'Under the Sea' dance

Coldplay were joined on stage by Back to the Future star Michael J. Fox during their performance at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium.

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.’


Last month, Coldplay headlined the first show at Kensington Palace, which was staged to benefit Prince Harry’s Aids charity Sentebale. The end of the show saw Prince 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.

Coldplay also covered Prince at their show in Copenhagen earlier this month (July 6). 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.

This follows the band’s headline performance at Glastonbury last month, where they duetted on ‘My Way’ with Michael Eavis and The Bee Gees’ hits ‘To Love Somebody’ and ‘Stayin’ Alive’ with their singer Barry Gibb.
