This is not the first time the 2001 classic pop hit has been reimagined on stage, three years ago Coldplay and Minogue treated Glastonbury to a now legendary duet. The set took place in 2019 and has been named the most watched Glastonbury performance. Minogue was billed to play the coveted Sunday teatime slot on the Pyramid Stage known as the Legends’ slot, during the set she was joined by Coldplay and both acts performed an acoustic cover of “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head”.
The next performance at the New Jersey venue also saw Coldplay duet with another highly influential musician, during the set on Sunday 5th June 2022, the band shared the stage with New Jersey’s hometown hero Bruce Springsteen. The live partnership included such tracks as Springsteen’s classic hit “Dancing In The Dark” and the 2009 single “Working On A Dream”. During the once in the lifetime concert, Springsteen spoke to the crowd concerning frontman Chris Martin’s relationship with “Working On A Dream”, he stated, “Chris said he had this song tattooed on his arm for a while, so I guess I’ve got to sing it with him.”
