“Michael J. Fox surprised the audience by joining Coldplay onstage during a music festival in the U.K. The 63-year-old actor played guitar alongside the band during their final encore, performing their 2021 single ‘Humankind.’ Coldplay’s lead singer, Chris Martin, introduced Fox, praising him for his iconic roles, including the 1985 film ‘Back to the Future,’ and highlighting his musical talent with a Chuck Berry riff. Fox, who has been living with Parkinson’s disease since 1991, received a warm welcome from the crowd.”

“During the performance, the audience joined in singing along to ‘Fix You’ as Chris Martin knelt beside Michael J. Fox, who played guitar from his wheelchair. Martin again referenced ‘Back to the Future’ by singing lines from Chuck Berry’s ‘Johnny B. Goode,’ featured prominently in the film. After Fox departed from the stage, Martin credited him as the inspiration behind Coldplay, saying, ‘Especially thank you to the main reason why we’re in a band, is because of watching ‘Back to the Future.’'”

“So thank you to our hero forever, and one of the most amazing people on Earth, Mr. Michael J. Fox,” Martin said. “Thank you so much, our hero.”

Following the event, Fox took to social media to express his gratitude, posting on Instagram on Sunday. He thanked the Coldplay team for their exceptional care and specifically mentioned band members Chris, Will, Johnny, Guy, and Phil. Reflecting on the experience, Fox described it as incredibly impactful, using strong language to convey how mind-blowing it was. He also commented on life’s challenges, acknowledging in a recent interview that he doesn’t expect to live to 80 and discussing the increasing difficulties he faces daily.
