  • Chris Martin says Coldplay will not go on tour due to environmental

British band Coldplay will not tour to promote their new album, but are working on how to make their gigs environmentally sustainable, lead singer Chris Martin said.

"Our next tour will be the best possible version of a tour like that environmentally". "We would be disappointed if it's not carbon neutral". Martin acknowledged that a particularly hard element for touring is the need for air travel, but listed shows free of single-use plastics and powered by solar as examples of the band's hopes for a future tour.

The band's last world-wide tour was for A Head Full Of Dreams, in 2016 and 2017, where they performed 122 shows across four continents.

It comes after the band revealed the tracks of Everyday Life in the classified adverts of their local newspapers.

"All of us, in every industry, have to just work out what the best way of doing our job is ..."

The British band are in the Jordanian capital Amman to perform two shows that will be streamed live on YouTube.
