What's the sustainability plan for Coldplay's tour?

In 2019, Coldplay committed to making future tours as environmentally beneficial as possible, and the Music of the Spheres World Tour announcement was accompanied by a set of sustainability initiatives and environmental commitments.

Full details can be seen at coldplay.com/sustainability, including commitments to:

  • Cut direct emissions by 50% compared to their previous tour (2016-17).
  • Power the show entirely by renewable, super-low emission energy – with solar installations at every venue, waste cooking oil, a kinetic stadium floor and kinetic bikes powered by fans. This power will be stored in the first rechargeable show battery (developed in partnership with BMW from recyclable BMW i3 batteries).
  • Draw down significantly more CO2 than the tour produces with a range of nature- and technology-based solutions, including planting one tree for every ticket sold.
  • Provide each venue with a sustainability rider requesting best environmental practices.

“Playing live and finding connection with people is ultimately why we exist as a band," Coldplay said in a press release. "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, they're conscious of their environmental impact.

"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," the statement continued.

"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."
