The band have a crack at 'Can't Get You Out Of My Head'...
COLDPLAY paid tribute to KYLIE MINOGUE at the ‘most important gig of their lives’, headlining the PYRAMID STAGE at GLASTONBURY 2005.
The band kicked off their encore with a cover of the star’s 2001 Number One hit ’Can’t Get You Out Of My Head’.
Minogue was forced to pull out of her Glastonbury Pyramid Stage headline slot last month after being diagnosed with breast cancer.
Singer Chris Martin dedicated the cover to “absent friends”.
As well as the cover the band played a hits set from their three albums. Opening with ‘Square One’ from ‘X&Y’, they then paid tribute to the now famous Glastonbury weather during ‘Politik’, changing the lyrics to “give me weather that does no harm / Michael Eavis, Worthy Farm”.
Elsewhere, Martin also mocked the fact their comeback single ‘Speed Of Sound’ had been kept from the UK Number One spot by the Crazy Frog, screaming “Crazy Frog where are you now? during the song.
Speaking recently about the show to NME, Martin claimed that all the band’s tour dates so far have been leading up to tonight’s appearance (June 25), and the show is set to be the highlight of their year.
He said: “We want to provide the definitive concert of all time. That’s what we want to do. That’s how we feel about it. If you want to know honestly our opinion on it, is that it’s the most important gig in history. That’s how we feel about every gig, but particularly this one because it’s the most important gig in history combined with playing inside a massive Toblerone.”

’God Put A Smile Upon Your Face’
’Speed Of Sound’
’Everything’s Not Lost’
