Coldplay has announced a world tour behind the Max Martin-produced album Music of the Spheres. The band decided not to tour for their previous album, Everyday Life, for environmental reasons. In response, the new tour will consist of several changes to eliminate “significantly more CO2 than the tour produces.” H.E.R. will support Coldplay for the majority of shows, while London Grammar will support the band occasionally. You can see the full tour dates below.

First, the band will plant one tree for every ticket sold. Ten percent of all tour earnings will enter a fund for “environmental and socially conscious causes,” according to a press release. The band will adopt a broad model for sustainability, with each show powered exclusively by renewable energy. They will use energy generated from waste cooking oil, a kinetic stadium floor, and kinetic bikes powered by fans. Coldplay is encouraging fans to use low-carbon transportation with an app that offers venue discounts as rewards. Finally, the band will discourage single-use plastic bottles by providing free water. The band has enlisted climate experts at Imperial College London’s Grantham Institute to determine all of this.

Coldplay said they were “very conscious that the planet is facing a climate crisis,” according to the press release. “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.”
