Michael J. Fox joined Coldplay in New Jersey over the weekend to perform a cover of ‘Johnny B. Goode’ and ‘Earth Angel’. Watch it below.

The actor famously performed the songs as part of his role as Marty McFly in Back To The Future. In a video message at Coldplay’s MetLife Stadium gig on Sunday evening (17 July), Chris Martin’s son Moses requested that the band play the songs, as it’s their favourite film of all time.

About two minutes into the performance of Marvin Berry And The Starlight’s’ ‘Earth Angel’, Fox appeared, driving the crowd into a frenzy.
