Dublin: 9 °C Wednesday 20 October, 2021

Chris Martin gave this Dublin man €50 when he heard how much he paid for a Coldplay ticket from a tout

Partial refund from the man himself.

EVEN THOUGH THE Coldplay gig in Croke Park was on Saturday night, Chris Martin has stuck around Dublin for a few days – even taking the time to visit Conor McGregor’s coach’s gym yesterday for a work out.

By all accounts, he’s been lovely to any fans that have stopped in for a photo around the capital, but he left his soundest gesture for his final night here.

Ballymun man Jamie Harrington told the story on Twitter last night:

“So just met chris martin from coldplay in work and he is the soundest bloke ever he Gave me €50 cause i told him how much a tout charged me”

Good man, Chris.

Jamie tells DailyEdge.ie that Chris had stopped in to watch The International Comedy Club and that’s where it happened:

I met him in the international bar and he was the soundest person on earth! Told him how a tout charged me €200 for a ticket to the show and he offered to refund me and then dropped me €50.
He was more than happy to meet fans.

€200 is a bit steep for a ticket – and many more besides paid above and beyond that – but only Jamie got a partial refund from the lead singer himself.
