Chris Martin and fellow Coldplay bandmates took the Beacon Theatre last night, and it was touching!
Before performing slow-tune "Fix You," Martin announced the song was for Mick Jagger, who recently lost his girlfriend L'Wren Scott to suicide. The powerful song focuses on recovering through hard times.
"It's for Mick Jagger," Martin announced.
A memorial was held last week for the late fashion designer at St. Bartholomew's church in New York. Friends and family of Scott gathered to pay their respects, including Sarah Jessica Parker, Martin Scorsese, Julianne Moore and Meg Ryan.
The Rolling Stone front man has maintained a low profile, yet released a statement on the incident.
"I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way," he writes. "We spent many wonderful years together and had made a great life for ourselves. She had great presence and her talent was much admired, not least by me."
Coldplay performed classic hits like "Clocks," "Viva la Vida" and "Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall." The British band is currently promoting "Ghost Stories," their latest album since "Mylo Xyloto."
The band stopped by "Saturday Night Live" over the weekend where they performed "Magic," which revolves around Martin's "conscious uncoupling" from Gwyneth Paltrow, and "A Sky Full Of Stars," co-written by Avicii.
Entertainment Wise reports one fan yelled out "Hang in there, Chris!" during last night's "Magic" performance.
Coldplay closed their Monday night show with a brand new single titled "True Love," which fans were asked to keep to themselves. No one was allowed to film or record audio, as Martin calls it "the best song off our new album that no one has ever heard yet."
It sounds like we are in for a real treat with "Ghost Stories," due out May 19. Do you agree? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!
