Coldplay paid homage to Pearl Jam in Seattle by performing “Nothingman” at their recent concert. “Nothingman” is taken from Pearl Jam’s 1994 album, Vitalogy and you can watch the version of Coldplay below.
Coldplay took a moment to play something different at their concert at Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle, and we think the band pulled off their cover of Pearl Jam’s song, “Nothingman.”
Before Coldplay played the lead singer for Pearl Jam, Chris Martin said, “So because we’re here in Seattle, we wanted to pay homage to one of the bands we fell in love with when we were just kids. teenagers in the 90s. “
He says it’s a cover and urges people not to upload it to YouTube because it won’t be the best, which is fun because you can watch the YouTube performance of the song below. Chris Martin goes on to joke that it’s not Adele who covers “Make You Feel My Love”, rather he says he’s the one who remembers how much he fell in love with Pearl Jam in 1991.
Coldplay drummer Will Champion then comes in to play the song on the piano, and Martin says he only learned to play the song about 25 minutes ago. Martin is obviously a huge Pearl Jam fan and says, “If Eddie ever hears that, I love you man, thanks for being so nice to our band” during his tribute.
Chris Martin has covered this song before, except the last time it was with Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder at the Global Citizen Live festival in 2018, according to Spin. You can compare the cover of Coldplay and the original version of Pearl Jam by watching the videos below.
