Coldplay Pay Tribute To Beastie Boy Adam Yauch

Coldplay have paid tribute to the late Beastie Boys rapper Adam Yauch by performing an acoustic version of one of their songs.

Lead singer Chris Martin turned the hip-hop group's rap song, Fight For Your Right, into a touching piano ballad during their concert at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.

At the end of the song, Martin added a line, saying: "We're sending all our love to the Beastie Boys."

In a video posted on the British band's website , fans were heard cheering and singing along during the rendition.

Yauch, known by his stage name MCA, died on Friday after a three-year battle with cancer. He was 47.

His death came just weeks after the Beastie Boys were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The Beastie Boys sold more than 40 million records worldwide in a career spanning 25 years.
