On Saturday night (July 16), Coldplay kicked off the North American leg of its Head Full of Dreams tour just outside New York in East Rutherford, NJ's MetLife Stadium. They were back in the same venue the following night, so what did they do to break the mold? Stage an iconic scene from American cinema. Did you ever doubt Chris Martin's dramatic flair?

During the show's final encore, Coldplay brought out Michael J. Fox, Gibson Les Paul in hand. Together, they transported the crowd to Back to the Future's Enchantment Under the Sea dance, with a couple of '50s classics. First, they played a little of the Penguins' "Earth Angel" and after that -- of course -- Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode." The homage came as a request from Martin's son, Moses, who was hoping to get a real life taste of his favorite movie.

Watch it all go down in the video below:

Fox (who was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 1991) has been known to reprise the famous scene at the annual benefits for his Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. For the 2013 benefit, he performed alongside Chris Martin in New York City.

Coldplay's epic Head Full of Dreams tour continues July 20 in Indianapolis.
