Adam Yauch Remembered by Madonna, Coldplay
In addition, Madonna expressed sadness to hear of Yauch's death and asked God to bless his family.
The Beastie Boys opened for Madonna on her concert tour in the 1980s.
On Friday night on stage at the Hollywood Bowl, Coldplay played a sentimental tribute to Yauch with a rendition of the Beastie Boys' hit "(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party!)." Frontman Chris Martin sang and played the piano.
"We're sending all our love to the Beastie Boys," Martin said afterwards, as the crowd cheered.
