Chris Martin was a surprise performer in New York last night (13th September) as he joined hip-hop's two biggest stars - Jay-Z and Eminem - as they headlined Yankee Stadium in the borough, in a grand show of how hip-hop has grown from Bronx party music to stadium-filler.
Chris performed Most Kings, Viva La Vida and Heart of the City with Jay-Z. New videos of the performance are here and here at the Coldplay forum, and you can also see new pictures of Chris here and also after the jump. [thanks laga, mayurshikotra & *Sarah*]
Coldplay's Phil Harvey tweeted about the show, annotating the picture he sent with "Last night at Yankee Stadium. Jay-Z, undisputed King of New York. Chris went onstage for Heart of the City, Most Kings and Viva. pH
The triumphant performance last night in the Bronx, followed by a twin event tonight, will put the stars in front of roughly 100,000 fans, perhaps the largest audience New York has ever hosted for a hip-hop show. Both Eminem and Jay-Z, who performed two concerts at Detroit's Comerica Park earlier this month, brought out an all-star cast of friends to mark the occasion. During Eminem's performance, which came first, his guests included his posse D-12, protege 50 Cent, mentor Dr. Dre and new hitmaker B.o.B. Hometown hero Jay-Z would not be outdone, calling on Chris Martin, Kanye West, sensations Drake and Nicki Minaj, and wife Beyonce to support his set.
