Discussing the idea behind the upcoming eco-friendly tour, Coldplay said in a statement: “Playing live and finding connection with people is ultimately why we exist as a band. We’ve been planning this tour for years, and we’re super excited to play songs from across our whole time together.

“At the same time, 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.”

They added: “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.”







During a Big Read interview with NME, the band’s Guy Berryman said: “I think we’ve made a great start at the moment. Whatever we end up doing, will be a Phase One, but there always has to be an improvement and a continual cycle.

“If you want to pick holes, and I’m sure someone can and will, I think that’s fine: what you have to do is embrace the idea of continued progress. It has to be an ever-evolving situation.”

Meanwhile, PETA has urged Coldplay to serve only vegan food on their 2022 world tour.
