'One World: Together At Home': Chris Martin's old performance gets replayed leaving Coldplay fans disappointed
Although fans were happy to see him in the event, they were disappointed that he did not perform anything new and that the video was already seen before
While the death toll from the ongoing coronavirus is surging with each passing day, some of the biggest musicians in the industry have come together to help people from across the world overcome the health crisis with the power of music.
'One World: Together At Home' is a virtual music concert hosted by WHO And Global Citizen in collaboration with Lady Gaga. The two-hour-long concert which is currently airing on a couple of major networks has an exciting line-up of celebrities performing tonight.
While a few minutes of the segment featured performances by Lady Gaga, Elton John and Paul McCarty, Chris Martin from Coldplay appeared on the screen albeit only briefly.
A clip of Martin's performance on the band's hit song 'Yellow' led to the bigger event that was taking place today. He first performed the song on Instagram live a while ago and the same clip was showcased for about 10 seconds on 'One World: Together At Home'.
Although fans were glad to see him in the event, they are disappointed with the fact that he did not perform anything new and that the video was already seen before.
One agitated fan wrote, "I cannot believe they just put an Instagram video clip of Chris Martin's performance which I had watched hundreds of times... 2 months ago!!!! I want to watch Coldplay performing!!!"
"People when Coldplay/Chris Martin perform : ColdPlay is laaaaaame. People when they were promised Chris Martin and it doesn't happen: oh no :( show me more chris please," added another.
Some frustrated fans resorted to making memes surrounding his shortlived replayed performance. "And tonight we have an exclusive Chris Martin performance, don't miss it! Chris: 'look at the stars, look how th-' THAAANK YOU FOR SUCH AN ICONIC AND BEAUTIFUL PERFORMANCE CHRIS!!!!"
"Feel bad for Chris Martin. Gets about 20 seconds of airtime when everyone else is getting whole songs. But he probably should have played 'Fix You' instead of 'Yellow'," added a viewer.
