Coldplay pay tribute to Viola Beach at Glastonbury

Coldplay performed a Viola Beach track at Glastonbury on Sunday (26.06.16).

The band paid tribute to the indie rock band with their song 'Boys That Sing' after all four members - Kris Leonard, River Reeves, Tomas Lowe and Jack Dakin - and their manager Craig Tarry plunged to their death from a bridge in a tragic car accident in Sweden in February.

Frontman Chris Martin said the band "reminded us of ourselves in our early days".

He said: "We're going to create Viola Beach's alternative future for them and let them play Glastonbury for a song," before adding: "This would have been [Viola Beach] in 20 years."

The band played 'Boys That Sing' instead of David Bowie's heroes, which they usually perform, and showed footage of the band performing.

Speaking previously about plans for the tribute, a source said: "Coldplay always support upcoming bands and the new news of Viola Beach's sudden death hit them all hard as fellow musicians."

The special performance follows April's memorial concert held at the band's hometown of Warrington, Cheshire, North West England, where fellow indie stars The Kooks, The Zutons and The Coral performed on stage at the Warrington Parr Hall, where Viola Beach were due to perform before they lost their lives.

At the time of their tragic deaths, several music stars mourned the loss of the rising rock band including former Oasis star Liam Gallagher, The Stone Roses and Kasabian.

They all got behind a campaign to get the group's single 'Swings & Waterslides' into the charts.
