Coldplay’s Chris Martin revealed his love for Pearl Jam and paid tribute to the iconic rock outfit during a live performance last Friday (October 22) by serving up a stripped-back rendition of Nothingman.

The concert – which formed part of the band’s pre-world tour promo show run following the release of their ninth studio album, Music Of The Spheres, earlier this month – took place at the Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle, with Martin capitalizing on the gig’s location to perform the track.
