Coldplay pay tribute to Viola Beach at Glastonbury

Coldplay paid a touching tribute to "all the bands that don't exist any more" as they gave Viola Beach a posthumous Pyramid State headline debut at Glastonbury. The Sunday night headliners played Viola Beach's song "Boys That Sing" in honour of the Warrington band who died tragically in a car accident in Sweden in February along with their manager.

Coldplay's guitartist Chris Martin, said before their performance, "they reminded us of us and all the other bands that come through here," he also told the festival  goers, about when Coldplay first played Glastonbury in the New Bands tent. "The excitement and the joy and the hope. We really felt that in them.
