The band played a secret show at the Round Chapel in Hackney, East London, which was being recorded for a future broadcast on MTV in June. During 'In My Place' Martin spotted Gallagher on the balcony. He climbed up onto the main speaker stack and then pulled himself onto the balcony. Once up there he found Noel and gave him a massive hug. However, Martin then found himself stranded on the balcony, fifteen feet from where the rest of the band were attempting to continue the song without him. After standing on the edge, Martin then jumped back onto the stage below. Earlier in the night Chris Martin had covered 'Lyla' as a tribute to his hero. The show was the band's only confirmed UK date prior to their headline appearance at this summer’s Glastonbury festival.
