Shane Warne says Chris Martin twisted his arms to play harmonica during Coldplay concert
arne said that he was nervous about the offer, but could not say no when convinced by Chris and his children
Spin legend Shane Warne said that his arms were literally twisted by Coldplay singer Chris Martin for playing the harmonica during the band's concert in Melbourne on December 10.
Martin called him the "best harmonica player in Australia" in last week to which Warnie responded saying he ha "no musical talent whatsoever" that he "crushed it" when playing alongside the rock band
According to The Herald Sun
"He had been at my house all day, and we had been debating it and the kids were going, ''Come on, you have to Dad''.
"Chris said, ''I will really hold it against you if you don't,'' so I said ''OK''. At the rehearsals, before the guys were on stage, they said, ''Have you got this?'' and I said, ''Well, I don't think so''."
The spin star admitted that after a quick rehearsal the real experience was "right up there" when it came to the best moments in his life.
On December 10 at Etihad Stadium, Warnie showed off his unexpected skills in front of 55,000 people. He had joined the concert with the band on the song Don't Panic, leaving the crowd as well as Chris on a shock.
Chris was seen sporting a grin and stopping his guitar in order to adjust Shane's microphone, so the crowd could hear his notes.
Before exiting the stage, the cricketer did a little solo performance during an interval.
Shane, made fun of his own skills and wrote on Instagram: 'A huge thank you to the crowd for being so nice and cheering me when I played the harmonica (badly).'
