Michael J. Fox said that performing with Coldplay at Glastonbury was mind-blowing for him. The legendary British musicians performed at the Pyramid stage on June 29, thus being the first to headline the festival five times. The band started with 'Yellow' and performed a show The Independent described as a 'spectacle of a lifetime.'

On the set, Chris Martin, the lead singer, invited several celebrities, including Palestinian-Chilean singer Elyanna. However, the event was rather entertaining, although Michael J. Fox’s cameo was clearly the highlight.

The singer has Parkinson’s disease, and he accompanied Coldplay for their concert where together they played guitar to "Humankind," as well as "Fix You" in front of 100 000 fans.

Fox's Instagram Thanks

Fox captioned in an Instagram post on Sunday ‘Thank you’ to his team and the band.

He wrote, "My team: Lauren, John, Jeff, and Steve. Glastonbury, all the love and thanks to the @coldplay team who took such great care of us. And many thanks to Chris, Will, Johnny, Guy, and Phil. Oh yeah, in case you were wondering…it was f------- mind-blowing.

There is a time for every band and a band for every time. This is @coldplay’s time." Chris Martin had indicated Fox’s appearance earlier in the set by referencing to 'Johnny B. Goode' song, which Fox’s character Marty McFly performs in the first 'Back to the Future' movie of 1985.

Before the end of the "Fix You," Martin was able to unveil why Fox was involved. He said, "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.

Thank you so much Michael, our hero." This isn’t the first time Fox has played with Coldplay. They first collaborated at MetLife Stadium in 2016, where they played 'Johnny B. Goode.' Coldplay’s performance at the Glastonbury festival attracted a lot of celebrities, with many watching from the vantage point on the side of the stage.

Chris Martin’s on-off girlfriend, Dakota Johnson, was present, along with Tom Cruise and Simon Pegg, who co-star in the Mission: Impossible franchise. Other celebrities in the audience were Gillian Anderson and Stormzy, who sat in the audience.
