The outpouring of musical tributes and heartfelt messages continues. In the aftermath of Tom Petty's untimely death on Monday evening (Oct. 2), Coldplay took a moment out of their concert at Moda Center in Portland, Ore. to honor the rock legend. The pop-rock outfit were joined by Peter Buck, co-founder and lead guitarist of R.E.M., for the performance, which saw the entire crowed join in on unison for the last ringing chorus.
Early Monday, Petty was found unconscious and suffering from cardiac arrest in his Malibu home. He was quickly rushed to the hospital where it was discovered he had no brain activity. From family wishes, all life support was removed. He passed away soon after. He was 66.
In the past 24 hours, a slew of other tributes, homages and various other remembrances have poured in. The likes of Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Lorde, Kesha, Ringo Starr and countless more shared special moments on social media.
"God bless Tom Petty peace and love to his family I'm sure going to miss you Tom," wrote Starr.
Sheryl Crow shared, also touching upon the Las Vegas massacre which occurred the night before, "This is unbearable. Vegas and now a great music hero has passed. You brought us so much joy, @tompetty. We will miss you."
Country outlier Jason Isbell also reflected on Petty's immeasurable impact on his life, stating, "I can't think of an important moment in my life without an accompanying Tom Petty song. Every night we walk off stage to his music. So sad."
