Coldplay welcomed New Jersey’s own Bruce Springsteen to join them for two songs during their concert on Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The Boss teamed with Coldplay for “Working On A Dream” before dueting with on “Dancing In The Dark.”

The collaboration came towards the end of Coldplay’s second of two Music Of The Spheres tour stops at the New York City area venue. Coldplay assembled on their “C-Stage” for “Sparks” ahead of Martin introducing Bruce Springsteen. “This person is my hero,” Chris Martin said and noted he had a tattoo on his arm in honor of The Boss. “Well, like Chris said, he’s had this song tattooed on his arm for a while, so I guess I’ve got to sing it,” Springsteen told the crowd. He then dueted with Martin for “Working On A Dream,” the title track from his 2009 studio album. Chris Martin has lyrics from the song tattooed on his arm.

Bruce Springsteen was on acoustic for his guest spot, which continued with “Dancing In The Dark.” The Boss and Chris Martin delivered a stripped-down rendition of the Born In The U.S.A. classic.

Martin and company also played plenty of classics including “The Scientist,” “Viva La Vida,” “In My Place,” “Yellow,” “Clocks” and “Fix You.” Sunday was the group’s second of two nights at MetLife Stadium.
