Discussing the idea behind the tour, the band said in a statement: “Playing live and finding connections with people is what finally makes us a band. Very excited to play the songs together.
At the same time, we are very conscious that the planet is facing a climate crisis. So we’ve spent the past two years consulting with environmental experts to make this tour as sustainable as possible, and, as well, just as importantly, harnessing the tour’s potential to move things forward.
“We won’t get everything right, but we are committed to doing what we can and sharing what we learn. It’s a work in progress and we really appreciate the help we’ve got so far.” Grateful. If you want to come on a show and sing with us, we are very excited to see you.”
An integral part of the tour is its eco-friendly measures, which have been prescribed A new ‘Stability’ section of Coldplay’s official website.
Measures include cutting direct emissions by 50 percent compared to the band’s previous tour in 2016 and 2017, using 100 percent renewable energy, and installing solar installations at each location.
Fans who travel to the show by public transportation will be rewarded with a discount, while the band is donating 10 percent of all tour earnings to climate change organizations. A sapling will also be planted on each ticket sold.
Earlier this week (October 12), Coldplay played a short London show at Shepherd’s Bush Empire with a special guest appearance by Ed Sheeran.
reviewing the gig, Granthshala Wrote: “The intimate settings bring out a raw, rough and slightly goofy side of the band. To please only a few thousand fans – unlike the huge crowds in stadiums – they let loose.”
