Wheelchair Bound Coldplay Fan Gets Thrill of a Lifetime


A wheelchair bound Coldplay fan was able to get up close and personal with the band when he was brought on stage during their show in Dublin, Ireland.

The man, named Rob is seen in footage from the concert crowd surfing in his chair.

"A lad accidentally fell on me and was extremely apologetic. He and his friends insisted on lifting me and getting me a better view."

It was then when band front man Chris Martin saw him and got him on stage.

Once on the stage, Martin gave Rob a hug and improvised a song about the fan and Dublin with Rob joining in on the harmonica.

"He is 29-years-old and training is his job. Here we are in Dublin, what an awesome crowd. I've been around the whole wide world, never seen anybody so loud."

Coldplay later shared the fan shot clip on their Facebook page captioning it with "Amazing scenes in Dublin this evening." 

Afterwards Rob said that he's happy his experience at the concert can be a bright-spot in someone's day.

"In a time where we’re seeing the horrors of London, Manchester, and Paris, I hope this shows that if you get yourself out there, you never know what's going to happen. I would like to thank Chris for an amazing experience."
