Grammy winners Coldplay are about to release a new album, but frontman Chris Martin says they want their next tour to be different.
Martin telling the BBC that they want their next tour to be carbon neutral. He says “We would be disappointed if it’s not carbon neutral. We’ve done a lot of big tours at this point. How do we turn it around so it’s not so much taking as giving?”
Coldplay isn't the first to tour "green." Billie Eilish announced her world tour will be as "green as possible" with no plastic straws and refillable water bottles. The 1975 have pledged to plant a tree for every ticket sold to their UK arena tour in February.
According to The Guardian, "Music festivals are also facing pressure to go green. This year, Glastonbury banned the sale of single-use plastic bottles across its site, offering 850 water taps and dozens of water kiosks. More than 60 major festivals, including Reading, Leeds and Download, have pledged to go plastic-free by 2021."
Coldplay will play two shows in Jordan on Friday, the day their album is released, which will be streamed live.
