VIDEO: Coldplay In Musical Tribute To R.E.M.

Everybody Hurts, even Chris Martin   26-Sep-11

Coldplay performed a cover version of R.E.M.'s Everybody Hurts, at the Music Midtown in Atlanta last week, as a tribute to the band who announced their split last week.

You can watch the fan-shot footage of the tribute above.

The festival took place in R.E.M.'s hometown, and Chris Martin had this to say before the cover:

"One of our favourite bands of all time, R.E.M., for some... crazy reason have finished and it's sad. So with the most respect in the world, this is just to show how much they meant to us."
