Chris Martin delighted patrons at a rural pub on his way home from Glastonbury, playing Coldplay’s song A Sky Full of Stars on the pub’s piano.
In the homely surroundings of the Stag Inn in the village of Hinton Charterhouse, north Somerset, he dedicated the performance to a couple at the pub who were planning to have the song as the first dance at their wedding.
“It was one of those things where you go, ‘Right, this is happening’,” pub owner Chris Parkin told Sky News. “It was really brilliant, a brilliant moment.”
Martin, who visited Glastonbury and the pub with his actor girlfriend (and rumoured fiancee) Dakota Johnson, is a regular festivalgoer as well as performer. Coldplay have headlined Glastonbury four times, and also performed a set at the livestreamed version of the festival in 2021.
The band are now on a break during their world tour, which resumes on 2 July in Frankfurt before starting its UK leg in August with six nights at Wembley.
