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”.
