Chris Martin Gives Struggling Coldplay Fan Ride to His Concert

Chris Martin is looking out for his fans!

The Coldplay frontman recently helped out a woman who was heading to the band’s concert in Luton’s Stockwood Park, England on Sunday, May 26, and their interaction is going viral …because who doesn’t love a superstar helping out a fan?

Taking to X (formerly Twitter), community and equality advocate Saundra Glenn shared how Chris’ small act of kindness made her day:

“That moment when Chris Martin @Coldplay saw me struggling to walk, had his car stop and gave me a lift. Blooming amazing. Can’t believe this happened.”

Ms. Glenn added, “What a decent bloke. We had a nice chat too.”

She also shared a selfie with Chris while they were in the car together!

Ms. Glenn, who lives with osteoarthritis, tells CelebrityKind “it was epic.”

She’s also opened up about her sweet experience in an interview with the BBC:

“The door opened and I said, ‘oh that’s Chris Martin. I can’t get in with him!'”

But of course, she did, and was treated with nothing but kindness and respect. Ms. Glenn told the broadcaster, “when we got to the artist area, he didn’t leave me there. He said ‘get the golf buggy and make sure Saundra reaches her destination.’ It’s the fact he’s conscious of disability. He’s such a kind person.”

She also joked with Chris in the car about how the only reason she was at the festival was to see him, and she’d already managed to do that before the show started!

A sweet memory for Ms. Glenn and no doubt for Chris too!
