More on Coldplay and the Tour from Wikipedia.
On 7 October 2021, Coldplay announced that an album launch event for Music of the Spheres, entitled “The Atmospheres”, would be held in four cities across the world (Berlin, London, New York and Tokyo) on 15 and 16 October.
On 14 October 2021, a day before the release of Music of the Spheres, Coldplay officially announced their Music of the Spheres World Tour in 2022 to promote the album.
They had decided to pause touring until they could work out how to ensure that it would be environmentally friendly.
This vision will be realised in the Music of the Spheres tour: alongside the announcement of the tour, the band released a detailed plan setting out how they would ensure that the tour would have a minimal impact on the environment and would result in 50% less carbon dioxide generated than during the A Head Full of Dreams Tour.
The plan was developed over two years by Coldplay and a number of leading environmental experts and features a number of innovative sustainability strategies.
For example, the band have joined forces with BMW to create the first “mobile, rechargeable show battery” to power each concert on the tour, and have announced that the tour’s stage will be built from “a combination of lightweight, low-carbon and re-usable materials (including bamboo and recycled steel) that can be properly reused or recycled at the end of the tour”.
They have also pledged to plant one tree for every ticket sold.
