Watch Coldplay and other acts performing at BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend yesterday
Coldplay headlined Radio 1's Big Weekend in their home county of Devon last night (May 29) and sang a version of Prince's 'Red Beret'.
Introducing the song, Chris Martin told the crowd:
"What a treat it is to come back home to the most beautiful place of the world... And if you can't go home, where can you go?"
"Now we're going to play a song in tribute to somebody, and I would like to send this out to my mum and dad who, without becoming too graphic, became enamoured with each other about 400 meters behind you over there.
"As as a result of that I was born, because knowing my mum and and dad Exeter City probably won the game that day and Strongbow was 2 for 1 at Kwik Save, and maybe just maybe Prince was on the radio that day, and this is going out to my mum and dad and Prince."
Coldplay then played a stripped down version of Prince's 'Rasberry Beret' with Martin at the piano.
