Nick Cave fan Graham Daubney, who was also at the concert, said the pair sat with Nick’s wife Susie Cave and seemed ‘mesmerised’ by the show.
Earlier this year, Chris and Coldplay said they were committed to ‘reducing their carbon emissions’ while touring.
The band said they will ‘not embark on a globe-trotting tour because of environmental concerns’.

Speaking to BBC news, Chris said: ‘We’re taking time to see how our tour can be actively beneficial.’
He said of any future tour: ‘We would be disappointed if it’s not carbon neutral’.
‘We’ve done a lot of big tours at this point. How do we turn it around so it’s no so much taking as giving’?
The band’s last big tour was for A Head Full Of Dreams, in 2016 and 2017.
The singer also admitted that the current pandemic and lockdown forced him ‘to reassess his relationship with fame’.
‘Last year was quite an eye opener,’ he told BBC Radio 2 ‘I was like, ‘who am I without Wembley Stadium saying, ‘you’re awesome’?’
‘I’m trying in my life right now to not attach too much to being a pop star. I’m trying not to get my self worth from external validation’.
