Chris Martin Played A Surprise Gig In A Small Indian Bar

Chances are if you’ve seen Coldplay lately you were one of thousands in an arena – that is unless you were in the Delhi bar that frontman Chris Martin walked into and decided to play an acoustic gig in.

The singer was in India working on The Global Poverty Project when he decided to hop up on stage at Delhi’s Summer House bar and play a short set to a lucky handful of people.

“This is the first Coldplay song ever played in India,” Martin says before launching into Viva La Vida, as a video captured by an onlooker shows.

The video shows Martin playing Viva La Vida, Fix You and Paradise, aided by Indian musician Vishal Dadlani.

“It wasn’t an event. We were at a dinner together, and he just went ‘let’s go play somewhere’! And, boom,” Dadlani wrote on Twitter.

He described the impromptu performance as, “More jam, less gig,” graciously conceding that, “Chris did all the work, though. People were going apeshit.”
