VIDEO: Michael J. Fox joins Coldplay for Johnny B. Goode performance

Michael J. Fox channelled the spirit of Back to the Future’s Marty when he joined Coldplay on stage for a performance of Johnny B. Goode.

During Coldplay’s gig at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, Fox played covers of Earth Angel and Johnny B. Goode with the band. Both of these songs featured in 1985’s Back to the Future during the school dance.

Chris Martin’s son, Moses, actually made the request. In a video message, he revealed that it was their favourite movie of all time.

The crowd loved the appearance and thankfully some audience members had their smartphones ready so anyone who wasn’t there can watch it. Fox took to Twitter later to thank the band and said that he had a blast.
