Coldplay’s Chris Martin Brings Puppet Band, The Weirdos, To “Fallon”
Coldplay is making headlines on tour with big-name artists like electric guitar playing HER and K-Pop group BTS, and now on late-night shows with puppets called The Weirdos.
What a time to live!
Indeed, the singer of the group Chris Martin stopped The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon earlier this week and was joined by a puppet singer named Angel Moon, who “leads” the puppet group called The Weirdos, which is billed as a “group from another planet”.
The group hails from the famed Jim Henson’s Creature Shop (Henson, of course, being the late creator of The Muppets and just about everything puppet-related for the past 50 years).
The Weirdos are made up of 109 light-year-old Angel Moon, along with “bandmates” Done, Parkman, and The Wizard. And they’re signed to Atlantic Records.
They also joined Martin on fall on for an interview and a rendition of Coldplay’s song “Biutyful” from the album, Music of the spheres.
Martin recently told Billboard that “the Weirdos are a band we’re trying to help.”
He added, “I think we felt we kind of got to the end of doing singles as Coldplay. I think we’re probably done with that, in general. We can’t go no more pop or single-y [than the recent Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 BTS collaboration ‘My Universe’] than that and it felt good and we’re a little older now. So we have songs that we want to bring attention to, but with that, we asked the Weirdoes if they would do the song and pitch it and we’ll pitch it.
Check out Martin with The Weirdos below, both in interview form and performing music on the late night TV show.
