Coldplay have received rave reviews for their Croke Park show last night, but the evening was extra special for one Irish fan.

Irish fan Rob, who uses  a wheelchair, was spotted by lead singer Chris Martin while he was crowd surfing. No strangers to getting punters on stage, the Everglow singer brought him up for a sing song about Dublin.

Rob didn't come empty handed, treating to the crowds to some sounds from his harmonica, drawing massive cheers from the crowd of almost 75,000 people.

However, one punter briefly brought the concert to a halt after flinging a bottle of that band's guitarist Jonny Buckland. Martin briefly halted the concert to make sure his bandmate was okay, before continuing the show.

In the hours before the sell out concert, touts skyrocketed the price of tickets, with some soaring as high as €575.

Standing tickets available on the Seatwave website are going for €475. Seats as far back as the Davin Stand are priced at a hefty €575.

Seatwave is a Ticketmaster company and prices are set by third parties selling tickets on the site.

Many fans were left disappointed last year when the tickets originally went on sale.
