Although news of his death had yet to be fully confirmed late last night, it was clear that Tom Petty was in a critical condition in hospital.

The news reached Coldplay, who were playing Portland on their 'Head Full of Dreams' tour last night.

The band held a minute's silence for the victims of the horrific attack in Las Vegas, and then REM guitarist Peter Buck joined them on stage for a rendition of one of Petty's most famous songs, 'Free Fallin'.
