Playing tribute to the massive Irish community in the city, as well as wishing Will Champion a happy birthday, Chris Martin and the band teased a cover.

It’s gonna tie into Boston it’s gonna tie into the amazing Irish heritage that runs through this beautiful area. It’s gonna tie into the fact that tomorrow is a very special day for us, because our beautiful drummer Will Champion is having a birthday.

Of course, it was Christy Moore’s Ride On

He called it one of the “most beautiful songs”, that will “get you through life”.

Well, at least the best since they played the song with the man himself at Oxegen in 2011
