Charlie Puth took time out of his latest concert to pay tribute to the late Matthew Perry … performing the iconic “Friends” theme song, followed by one of his own touching hits.
The singer took a detour during his concert in Australia over the weekend to play a piano rendition of “I’ll Be There For You,” the main track for Perry’s hit TV show.
It’s a pretty emotional moment, and the entire crowd joins Charlie in singing the world-famous song. It got even more bittersweet when he transitioned into his 2015 hit, “See You Again” — paying more homage to the actor.
TMZ broke the story, Matthew was found unresponsive Saturday in his jacuzzi by his assistant, whom Perry sent out to pick up a new iPhone and prescription glasses for him.
Law enforcement sources told us first responders didn’t find any illegal drugs in his home, but did find anti-depressants, anti-anxiety meds, and a COPD drug.
The L.A. County Coroner will be conducting a toxicology exam to determine if drugs were in his system when he died … but that process could take months before an answer is revealed.
