Coldplay’s Groundbreaking Eco-Friendly ‘Music Of The Spheres’ Tour Sets New Standard

Coldplay, renowned for their eco-conscious efforts, have announced impressive sustainability milestones achieved on their ongoing "Music Of The Spheres" tour, earning praise for setting a new benchmark in eco-friendly live music.

The tour, which commenced in March 2022 and has sold over 9 million tickets, has successfully reduced CO2e emissions by 59% compared to their 2016-2017 stadium tour, surpassing their initial goal of a 50% reduction. This achievement has been verified by the MIT Environmental Solutions Initiative.

Coldplay’s commitment to planting a tree for every attendee has resulted in 7 million trees being planted globally. The band expressed gratitude to their fans for their contributions, including charging show batteries on power bikes, utilizing kinetic dance floors, and embracing sustainable travel and reusable items.

Additional highlights from their sustainability report include:

• An 86% return rate of reusable LED wristbands.

72% of tour waste diverted from landfill, with a focus on reuse, recycling, and composting.

Deployment of two solar-powered Ocean Cleanup River Interceptors.

18 shows powered entirely by a battery system using recycled BMW i3 batteries in 2023.

Partnerships with 23 green travel providers.

An average of 17kWh power generated per show from renewable sources.

Professor John E. Fernandez of MIT commended Coldplay for their leadership in addressing environmental challenges, noting their evolving vision and commitment to sustainability.

The ‘Music Of The Spheres World Tour’ continues in Athens, Greece next week, followed by a historic fifth headline performance at Glastonbury. This milestone coincides with the 25th anniversary vinyl edition release of ‘Brothers & Sisters’ and a recent headline show at the BBC Radio 1 Big Weekend.

Looking ahead, Chris Martin has hinted at concluding Coldplay’s album releases by 2025, with plans to focus solely on touring thereafter. Martin shared, “Our last proper record will come out in 2025. After that, we’ll tour and maybe collaborate, but the Coldplay catalogue finishes then.”

Coldplay’s dedication to sustainability sets a powerful example for the music industry, demonstrating that significant environmental impact can be achieved through innovative and committed efforts.
