Coldplay performed their free-streamed show at Sydney's Enmore Theatre yesterday (June 19), playing a few songs off their latest studio effort "Ghost Stories."

For the encore the band welcomed worldwide-famous Australian singer Kylie Minogue. She performed two songs with the band: her 1995's Nick Cave's duet "Where the Wild Roses Grow" and her very own smash hit "Can't Get You Out of My Head," which was already performed by Coldplay (without Kylie) at Glastonbury in 2005.

This is not the first time the singer collaborates with the band - they also recorded the duet track "Lhuna" during "Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends" studio sessions. It was released as a standalone charity single in 2008.

Last month (May 25) "Ghost Stories" was named as the band's sixth consecutive Number One album by the Official Charts Company, selling 168,000 copies in just one week. Altogether, the band have sold 11.1 million albums in the UK since the release of their debut, 2000's "Parachutes."

    Can't Get You Outta My Head is actually pretty good in this version. And now downvote me, br00talmetalheadz.

    I didn't downvote you for your opinion, I downvoted you for assuming anyone who disagrees with your opinion must be "br00talmetalheadz".
