American Blandstand: Watch Coldplay’s Chris Martin join Ed Sheeran on stage last night in Massachusetts


Ed Sheeran went from feeling “Red” to being “Yellow” last night at Gillette Stadium.

The pop singer played a show-out show down in Foxborough, and took a page out of BFF Taylor Swift’s stadium-tour playbook by inviting a special guest up on stage to perform with him. Steven Tyler? JoJo? Ken Casey? Nope, it was Coldplay’s Chris Martin.

“Gonna play a song that I think is gonna be fun — well, a couple of songs,” Sheeran told the crowd. As you can hear in the first video below, one fan’s guess of “Sir Elton John!” was pretty far off the mark.

With Martin at the piano, the duo performed Coldplay’s 2000 breakout hit “Yellow,” and Sheeran’s own “Thinking Out Loud.”

Sheeran said Martin wasn’t actually just coincidentally in the Boston area this weekend; he actually flew in to the Boston area just to perform. Sheeran called the moment “epic.”
