Watch: Coldplay sings special birthday song at Vancouver concert

Happy birthday Leo!
Coldplay's lead singer and pianist Chris Martin performed a special birthday song for a 10-year-old Vancouver boy named Leo at the band's second Vancouver concert on Sept. 23, 2023.

One young Vancouverite had a very special birthday.

Coldplay performed in Vancouver over the weekend on Sept. 22 and 23, and both concerts looked like a sky full of stars.

Among everything that happened on both nights, including opening each show with a First Nations land acknowledgement, Chris Martin, the lead singer and pianist of the group, also performed an impromptu - and very special - song. 

Leo, a 10-year-old boy who chose to celebrate his birthday at Coldplay's Saturday concert (his first concert too!), was called up on stage with his mother for a special surprise.

Seated next to Martin behind a piano, Leo appeared awestruck as the singer belted out a birthday song just for him.

"Leo, I'm so happy that you're sitting here with me," Martin sings. "I can't think of a better place to be when you turn 10." 

The band shared the video to their Instagram on Tuesday. 

Happy birthday Leo!
