Back in February, Warrington-born indie band Viola Beach were tragically killed in a car crash as they toured Sweden. And now, ahead of the release of their self-titled debut album on July 29th, Coldplay have paid tribute to the boys with a performance at Glastonbury.
The boys incorporated Viola Beach's 'Boys That Sing' into their Glasto set, saying 'we decided as a band...to let them headline Glastonbury.'
Speaking to the crowd as they played the last night of the festival, frontman fella Chris Martin said: "We're going to create Viola Beach's alternate future for them and let them headline Glastonbury with their song. So Kris and Jack and River and Tomas and their manager Craig, this is what would have maybe been you in 20 years or so and I hope we do this song justice."
