An integral part of the new tour are the environmentally friendly measures outlined on Coldplay’s official website in the new ‘Sustainability’ section.

Measures include reducing direct emissions by 50 percent compared to the band’s last tour in 2016 and 2017, using 100 percent renewable energy and installing solar panels at every venue.

Speaking of the idea behind the tour, Coldplay said in a statement: “We are acutely aware 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 important, to use the potential of the tour to move things forward.”

They added: “We won’t get everything right, but we are committed to doing whatever we can and sharing what we learn. It’s still a work in progress and we’re really grateful for the help we’ve had so far. If you want to come to a show and sing with us, we’d love to see you.”

Next week the tour continues to the Dominican Republic and Mexico. The band’s North American tour dates begin in April, European dates begin in July and UK dates in August, including six shows at London’s Wembley Stadium.
