Coldplay's Chris Martin reveals poignant reason he brought 'amazing' Michael J. Fox on stage during band's historic Glastonbury set amid the actor's battle with Parkinson's

The Back To The Future actor, 63, played the guitar from his wheelchair, amid his battle with Parkinson’s, with frontman Chris Martin, 47, poignantly crediting him for being the ‘main reason’ the group existed.

It was a huge milestone moment for Coldplay as they made history by becoming the first group to headline Glastonbury five times.

After Michael joined them in a renditions of their hits Fix You and Humankind, Chris told the crowd: ‘The main reason why we’re in a band is because of watching Back to the Future,’

He continued: ‘So thank you to our hero forever and one of the most amazing people on Earth, Mr Michael J. Fox. Thank you so much, Michael’.

Chris previously spoke about how seeing Michael on guitar playing Johnny B. Goode in one iconic scene from 1985’s Back To The Future was his inspiration to become a musician.

Telling Kelly Clarkson on her chat show in 2022: ‘That’s what made me want to be in a band, you know? That scene, yeah’.

Michael previously appeared with the band during their 2016 concert in New York and played songs from Back To The Future.

Chris said: ‘Michael J. Fox came and played two of the songs from Back to the Future with us. That was really wonderful’.

‘Him coming to play Johnny B. Goode and stuff, that was wonderful.’

Michael’s 2016 appearance was a request from Chris’ then ten-year-old Moses, with the video of the lad being played to the audience.
