Coldplay have revealed their plans for a 2022 tour, which they will be making as ‘sustainable as possible’. 

The band will be embarking on their Music Of The Spheres tour next year and are hoping to have one of the greenest tours in history by implementing special measures. 

The shows will be powered with rechargeable batteries provided by BMW, fuelled by renewable sources such as solar power and generators powered by hydrotreated vegetable oil.

Fans will also be instrumental to the running of the gig by generating electricity for the concert through a kinetic stadium floor and power bikes.

These alternatives will replace the usual diesel and petrol generators, which will in turn reduce the carbon footprint of the concerts.

Coldplay wrote on Twitter: ‘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.’

Chris Martin had previously revealed in 2019 that the band would not be doing a word tour for their album Everyday Life because of their concerns about the environmental impact it would have.

He added: ‘We’re proud to partner with BMW to create the world’s first tourable, rechargeable show battery – which will allow us to power our concerts almost entirely from clean, renewable energy.’

Coldplay’s ninth album, Music Of The Spheres, will be released on Friday.
