Following the performance, Adams also thanked the band and posted footage of their team up on his Instagram page.
He wrote: “Hello my hometown! Last night playing an impromptu song with @coldplay, great vibes. Cheers to Chris and the band for having me. #coldplay #everythingidoidoitforyou.”
The track, which featured in the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, still holds the chart record for the longest-running consecutive UK Number One after spending 16 weeks at the summit.
During the show, Sir Elton John appeared onscreen through a video broadcast which was beamed out at the musicians’ respective concerts. The band then performed John’s classic hit ‘Rocket Man’.
Currently, there are no UK shows lined up for next year. However, in a five-star review of their recent London gig, NME praised the members for their ability to deliver a captivating set, alongside “a focus on sustainability and inclusivity”.
“The songs performed here see the band strip things back, injecting the larger-than-life show with a moment of closeness,” it read. “It’s a joyful spectacle; a masterclass in how a massive pop show can be done. The band seem genuinely thrilled at the reaction, too.”
