Chris Martin and his bandmates announce plans to cut emissions by 50 per cent for their upcoming jaunt to support new studio album ‘Music of the Spheres’.
AceShowbiz –Coldplay‘s 2022 “Music of the Spheres” World Tour will be the band’s most eco-friendly trek yet.
The chart-topping British group had previously pledged not to tour again until it could do so in a more environmentally-friendly way. Now they’ve laid out a list of their earth-friendly goals ahead of the dates next year, and are planning to cut emissions by 50 per cent compared to their previous live shows.
The group – which comprises Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman, Will Champion, and Phil Harvey – has pledged to provide each venue with a sustainability rider requesting best environmental practices.
“We’re very conscious that the planet is facing a climate crisis. So we’ve spent the last two years consulting with environmental experts to make this tour as sustainable as possible, and, just as importantly, to harness the tour’s potential to push things forward,” band members said in a statement.
“We won’t get everything right, but we’re committed to doing everything we can and sharing what we learn. It’s a work in progress and we’re really grateful for the help we’ve had so far. If you’d like to come to a show and sing with us, we’re so excited to see you.”
The tour will kick off with Coldplay’s first-ever show in Costa Rica on 18 March, before they head to the Dominican Republic, Mexico, USA, Germany, Poland, France, Belgium and the U.K.
The “Yellow” hitmakers are also putting 10 per cent of their earnings towards a partnership with climate change experts at Imperial College London’s Grantham Institute – Climate Change and the Environment to gauge the environmental impact of the “Music of the Spheres” trek.
