The Stones’ lead singer uploaded a video of himself taking in the band’s recent London performance.
Mick Jagger treated himself to a spot of Coldplay last night, sharing a video of him bellowing along to the iconic tearjerker “Fix You” at the band’s concert at London’s Wembley Stadium Sunday, Aug. 21.
By the looks of the video, Jagger had quite the view from his box, able to take in the entire crowd, all wearing light-up bracelets. Whoever took the video captured a charming moment where Jagger threw up his hands, waved them around, and sang along with Chris Martin and the rest of the crowd.

“Had a great time watching Coldplay last night, A real busman’s holiday!” Jagger posted on Twitter using the phrase “busman’s holiday,” which is one of the best British slang expressions for doing something on vacation that one would typically do at work.
As it happens, Coldplay and Jagger have some history, particularly in regards to the song “Fix You.” A few days after the funeral for Jagger’s longtime girlfriend and fashion designer L’Wren Scott, who passed away in March of that year, Coldplay performed the song in honor of Jagger.
The Rolling Stones celebrated their 60th anniversary with a new four-part docuseries, My Life as a Rolling Stone, and Jagger spent the majority of the year on tour with the group. In March, Jagger also released a brand-new solo track titled “Strange Game,” which served as the opening theme for the spy drama Slow Horses on Apple TV+.
In the meantime, Coldplay will soon perform two concerts in Scotland before touring South America this fall. Additionally, the band recently added more U.K. and European dates for 2023, with more dates anticipated soon.
