Chris Martin of Coldplay and Bruce Springsteen perform “Working on a Dream” together at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, June 5.

Late in the second show of a two-night stand at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, June 5, Coldplay was joined by Bruce Springsteen for acoustic versions of Springsteen’s “Working on a Dream” and “Dancing in the Dark,” on a small stage.

The former featured all of Coldplay but the latter was a duet version featuring only Springsteen and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, who played piano. One both songs, Springsteen and Martin shared lead vocals.

“Hello, New Jersey,” said Springsteen before “Working on a Dream.” “Well, like Chris said, he had this song tattooed on his arm for a while, so I guess I’ve got to sing it.”

“Thank you, Bruce,” Martin said as Springsteen left the stage. “Thank you for everything.”

You can watch a video of the performance below.
