Coldplay highlighted their Beacon Theatre concert in New York City on Monday with a special dedication to grieving Rolling Stones' lead singer Mick Jagger who is still mourning following the death of longtime girlfriend, L’Wren Scott. According to a report by Billboard on Tuesday, the four-member band dedicated its slow tempo tune “Fix You” to Jagger as a symbol of encouragement.
Lead singer Chris Martin set off the special moment by telling the crowd before singing the song that he was performing the song with Jagger on his mind. The encouraging song about recovering was timely as a memorial for Scott was held in New York just last week. It will take some time for Jagger to recover from the tragic suicide Scott committed in March.
The British foursome upped the tempo a bit after the special dedication by performing some of their signature songs along with songs from their new album “Ghost Stories” which will be released on May 19. Martin danced wildly onstage and exhibited much energy as the band performed dance hits “Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall” and “A Sky Full of Stars.”
There was even a moment when the crowd consoled Martin, who recently split from wife Gwyneth Paltrow. While singing the song “Magic,” which featured tender lyrics about only wanting one person, a person in the crowed yelled out, “Hang in there, Chris!”
The band then closed out the concert with a song off their new album that no one has ever heard yet. Before performing “True Love,” Martin told the crowd, “(This) is the best song off our new album that no one has ever heard yet. Sometimes you have to keep these things to yourself.” After performing the song, Martin made a heart symbol with his hands, which was a perfect gesture to end out a show that featured the different levels and meanings of love.
