Coldplay has honored legendary rocker Tom Petty in the most appropriate way.

The British rock group held a minute’s silence for the victims of the Las Vegas massacre at its tour stop at the Moda Center in Portland, Oregon, on Monday.

Former R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck then joined the band on stage for a moving rendition of one of Petty’s best-known songs, “Free Fallin’.”
