Chris Martin teamed up with The Weirdos on Friday night for the alien band’s first-ever TV performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Watch it below.
The Coldplay frontman joined the otherworldly act’s lead singer Angel Moon on Music of the Spheres album cut “Biutyful,” which they’ve been performing together regularly on Coldplay’s ongoing world tour. Martin strummed along on guitar and fit right in with Weirdos members Donk, Sparkman, and The Wizard before joining Moon on vocals for the second verse.
The performance comes directly on the heels of The Weirdos signing a record deal with Atlantic and Parlophone Records last week, which their manager Bruce Cakemix referred to as “the biggest step forward in human-alien relations since Close Encounters” in a statement.
The Weirdos also sat down with Martin for an interview with Fallon, during which each member revealed their home planet and Moon repeatedly flirted with the late night host. Meanwhile, Martin said he and Coldplay begged The Weirdos to work together after seeing the aliens in concert. Watch the amusing segment below the “Biutyful” performance.
Earlier this month, Coldplay’s concert in New Jersey was crashed by Bruce Springsteen himself, with The Boss sitting in on performances of 2009’s “Working on a Dream” — the title of which Martin revealed on stage that he actually has tattooed on his arm — and 1984’s “Dancing in the Dark.”
Shortly after releasing Music of the Spheres last October, Martin hinted that he and his bandmates would retire from making original music by 2025, the predicted date of their final studio album.
In the meantime, Coldplay are about to wrap the North American leg of their “Music of the Spheres World Tour” before heading to Europe and the UK for the summer. In September, they’ll continue the trek in Latin America with dates in Peru, Chile, and Brazil. Grab your tickets here.
