Coldplay finished their six-night residency at Wembley Stadium last night (August 21) by bringing in Stormzy to perform ‘Blinded By Your Grace Pt. 1’ to do – see pictures below.
During the band’s concerts at the London venue this month, they were joined by many special guests including Natalie Imbruglia, Craig David, Steve Coogan as Alan Partridge and many more.
All performances took place on the venue’s C stage, at the back of the stadium, and at Sunday night’s concert they completed the sixth part of their seven-part show by hosting Stormzy for a version of their 2018 hit.
As with all special guests during the concert series, Coldplay and their guest were joined by Jacob Collier on piano and pedal guitarist Nicole Lawrence.

During their residency, the group featured Shaznay Lewis to cover two All Saints songs, and at the August 16 concert they were joined by Natalie Imbruglia, who paid tribute to the late Olivia Newton-John by covering “Summer Nights” with the group. They also produced Imbruglia’s 1997 hit “Torn”.
Meanwhile, Coldplay also welcomed Craig David, who performed his songs “Live In The Moment”, “Fill Me In” and “7 Days” at each of the first two concerts at Wembley Stadium. Other guests included pianist Victoria Canal and Steve Coogan in his role as Alan Partridge, who performed with Collier’s 1976 ABBA hit “Knowing Me, Knowing You” and Kate Bush’s new song “Running Up That Hill.”
