Coldplay Announce Details of Their Eco-Friendly 2022 World Stadium Tour

19th October 2021 | Category: Concerts

Coldplay have announced details of their 2022 world stadium tour, with an emphasis on environmental sustainability. 

Back in 2019 the band announced that they were taking time to consider how they would tour in the future in order to make it as environmentally friendly as possible.

Coldplay’s new tour dates come right after the band’s new album release – Music Of The Spheres and the second single, “My Universe” featuring South Korean pop group BTS.  The band will be supported by H.E.R. and London Grammar, starting in March in Costa Rica.

North American dates will then take place across May and June, before the band head to Europe in July. A UK run of shows closes the tour, including three dates at London’s Wembley Stadium.

Discussing the idea behind the tour, the band 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.

“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.”

Integral to the tour are its eco-friendly measures, which have been set out on a new ‘sustainability’ section of Coldplay’s official website.

The measures include cutting direct emissions by 50 percent compared to the band’s last tour in 2016 and 2017, using 100 percent renewable energy, and having solar installations at every venue.

Fans who travel to the shows by public transport will be rewarded with discounts, while the band are donating 10 percent of all of the tour’s earnings to climate change organizations. One tree will also be planted for every ticket sold.
