Coldplay Performs in Palisades Backyard for Communities in Schools Fundraiser
Event chaired by Reese Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth honors JK Livin Foundation’s Shannon Rotenberg at dropout prevention event
To the parents of the Palisades: sorry.
Nothing could be done about the music wafting across Rustin Canyon on Monday night while most children were being put to bed.
“We put our little card up in the local Starbucks saying we were available for gigs. The Bermans were very sweet and called us up,” Coldplay front man Chris Martin joked to the crowd gathered in Robin and Ed Berman’s lush backyard garden party where he was the surprise performer at the Communities in Schools Los Angeles Annual Gala.
While Martin’s joke drew laughs, the reality is that Martin didn’t call his bandmate Jonny Buckland to ask him to join in until 5 p.m. Monday afternoon, two hours before cars started pulling in to the Palisades for the event dedicated to dropout prevention. The pair figured out their set on the fly.
“We are going to play some songs by the band Coldplay,” Martin continued. “They are from England. Nobody really knows about them. But we can play their stuff really well.”
Martin and Buckland proceeded to play acoustic versions of classics “Clocks,” “Paradise,” and “A Sky Full of Stars,” taking a suggestion for the final song from Martin offspring Moses and Apple, who were seated Indian-style on the grass in front of the stage.
Martin called them his “co-managers” before ordering them off to “bed time” when he walked off stage.
But that might not have been the most surreal cameo of the night.
