NEW YORK (AP) — Coldplay dedicated its slow tempo tune "Fix You" to Mick Jagger at a concert in New York City.

Chris Martin told the crowd Monday before singing the encouraging song about recovering, "It's for Mick Jagger."

Jagger's longtime girlfriend, fashion designer L'Wren Scott, committed suicide in March. A memorial was held in New York last week.

Martin doesn't have moves quite like Jagger, but the singer danced wildly onstage with his arms swinging, singing tunes from the band's catalog, including songs from the new album "Ghost Stories," out May 19.

The British foursome closed the Beacon Theatre concert with "True Love," which Martin asked the crowd not to film, calling the track "the best song off our new album that no one has ever heard yet."
