    Guitarist Jonny Buckland, drummer Will Champion, frontman Chris Martin and bassist Guy Berryman of Coldplay take a bow after performing at the 2015 iHeartRadio Music Festival at MGM Grand Garden Arena on September 18, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The band was forced to cancel a recent Houston performance because of flooding.

    The band Coldplay was  forced to cancel a recent performance in Houston because of the Hurricane Harvey flooding. But Houston wasn't far from the mind of the band Monday night, as Coldplay paid a special tribute to the Lone Star state Monday while performing in Miami.

    Singer Chris Martin revealed the band wrote a new song with their Texas fans specifically in mind titled "Houston."

    According to Billboard, Martin explained to the crowd the group wrote the new song, "because we all grew up loving country music, and of course that's kind of what we think of when we go to Texas. So if you'll bear with us, this is a new song and we'll never play this again."

    Martin said the band would play the acoustic song one time for fans in Miami and that they wanted to "send it over there to everyone who missed the show."
