Coldplay frontman Chris Martin never shies away from a duet, whether it’s with Michael J. Fox, a complete stranger at a homeless shelter, or, as was the case at a recent concert in Dublin, a determined fan.
During the band’s stop at Croke Park stadium in the Ireland capital on Saturday, July 8, Martin noticed a wheelchair-bound fan crowd-surfing and invited him on stage.
Once there, the 29-year-old named Rob improvised a song with the legendary rocker and even accompanied Martin’s lyrics with a harmonica.
“He is 29-years-old, and training is his job,” Martin sang. “Here we are in Dublin, what an awesome crowd. I’ve been around the whole wide world, never seen anybody so loud.”
Naturally, fans whipped out their phones to capture the unique moment and Coldplay, themselves, shared a video of the experience on social media, writing “Amazing scenes in Dublin this evening!”
Following the unforgettable night, Rob told BBC News how the event unfolded.
“A lad accidentally fell on me and was extremely apologetic. He and his friends insisted on lifting me and getting me a better view,” he explained. “Chris Martin called me up onto the stage; suddenly I was on stage with Coldplay.”
Rob concluded his interview with a hopeful message: “In a time where we’re seeing the horrors of London, Manchester, and Paris, I hope this shows that if you get yourself out there, you never know what’s going to happen. I would like to thank Chris for an amazing experience.”
