Coldplay Fan in Wheelchair Crowd Surfs Onto Stage, Performs With Band

Published

One Coldplay fan got the thrill of a lifetime when he was hoisted up by the crowd in his wheelchair and brought onstage to perform with the band during their sold-out concert in Dublin, Ireland. The young man, whose name is Rob, can be seen crowd-surfing in a piece of fan-shot footage. This, unsurprisingly, got lead singer Chris Martin’s attention.

“A lad accidentally fell on me and was extremely apologetic,” Rob told BBC News. “He and his friends insisted on lifting me and getting me a better view. Chris Martin invited me up onstage so that I was on stage with Coldplay.”

Once onstage, Martin gave Rob a big hug and a harmonica, which he used in an improvised, acoustic song about Dublin. “He is 29-years-old and training in his job,” Martin sang to the crowd. He then added: “Here we are in Dublin, what an awesome crowd. I’ve been around the whole wide world, never seen anybody so loud.”

Coldplay later shared a video of the touching moment on their Facebook page with a caption reading, “Amazing scenes in Dublin this evening.”

Rob told BBC he’s glad that his experience could bring some positivity amidst the tough news cycle these past few months. “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 going to happen,” he said, adding, “I would like to thank Chris for an amazing experience.”

This isn’t he first time Coldplay has done something similar. Last month, the band invited another fan, 19-year-old Ferdinand Schwartz, onstage to play “Everglow” during a show in Munich. “You know where it starts?” Martin asked the fan as Schwartz began the track’s introduction.

Coldplay is currently touring Europe in support of their seventh studio album, A Head Full of Bad Dreams, released in late 2015.
