If you aren’t a Coldplay fan, we bet you’ll be one now. There’s a video floating around the web showing the band’s lead singer Chris Martin doing pretty much the coolest thing ever for one of his fans.
One of the band’s concertgoers, Rob Taylor, got the surprise of a lifetime at their recent sold-out show in Dublin after he began crowd surfing… in his wheelchair. A group of guys near him felt bad and insisted on giving him a better view. So they and the rest of the crowd managed to get him all the way to the front row via their hands.
When Martin noticed Taylor, he invited him onto the stage. He then busted out an impromptu song about Dublin, and handed his harmonica to the fan. That’s when the guy in the wheelchair began to show off his own musical skills and played along with the band.
Talk about a moment he’ll never forget… Oh, and he got to keep the harmonica, too. How cool is that?
After the show, Taylor, who was paralyzed in a diving accident when he was a kid, talked to BBC News about the whole magical experience: “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.”
Coldplay is headed to the United States next month. Perhaps we’ll see another cool moment like this go down again? If not, this is definitely a sweet move for the books. You can see the band’s upcoming U.S. tour dates here. And check out the video below…
