Michael J. Fox made a surprise appearance at Glastonbury during Coldplay’s record-breaking headline set on Saturday. 

The 100,000 strong crowd and BBC viewers were moved to tears as the Back To The Future actor, 63, who is battling Parkinson’s, appeared on stage in his wheelchair to play the guitar during Fix You and Humankind.  

THE BAND MADE HISTORY

It was a milestone moment for the band, who made history by becoming the first group to headline Glastonbury five times, with Chris Martin, 47, crediting Michael for being the ‘main reason’ they are in a group. 

MICHAEL J. FOX IS COLDPLAY’S HERO

He said: ‘The main reason why we’re in a band is because of watching ‘Back to the Future’, so thank you to our hero forever and one of the most amazing people on Earth, Mr Michael J. Fox. Thank you so much, Michael’. 

SINCE 1999

The British band made their debut at the iconic festival in the New Bands Tent in 1999, before headlining in 2002, 2005, 2011, and 2016. 

The frontman serenaded Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis, before the beloved Hollywood actor was revealed to the audience.

Chris sung: ‘Here is another legendary Michael, one who just totally rocks, with his chuck Berry quiff and the way he punched [Back To The Future villain] Biff, ladies and Gentleman please welcome Michael J.Fox’.
