Coldplay is taking over the world — and they’re doing it in a tree-like way.
In a heroic effort to save the planet from environmental catastrophe, the rock stars of “My Universe” promise to reduce their carbon emissions by 50% and plant a tree on every ticket for a future eco-friendly world trip in 2022. it will have a dance floor that generates electricity from the kinetic energy of the crowd.
“When [I] “Tell me you have to jump up and down, I need you to jump up and down,” Coldplay frontman Chris Martin told the BBC. “If you don’t, the lights go out.”
The British band’s low-CO2, energy-based reusable journey has been dubbed the ‘Music Fields’ album. it was posted on social media Thursday.
The 10-nation show, which begins in San Jose, Costa Rica in March and ends in Rio de Janeiro in September, will be Coldplay’s first tour in nearly five years. Their last global release series was in 2017.
Martin, who previously promised that Coldplay wouldn’t go the other way until he found a sustainable and environmentally safe way to get on stage, says the group now has a 12-point plan to reduce its carbon footprint.
“The whole show runs on renewable energy,” said Martin, 44, noting that the show’s most exciting source of electricity comes from fans.
Viva La Vida singer: “Two parts of the audience are lying on the kinetic floor.”
The finished board runs on a Coldplay battery created in collaboration with the luxury car brand BMW. The battery is charged in recycled oil, solar energy and human movement.
“So when they move, they support the concert,” Martin continued, adding that there will also be kinetic energy bikes that collect energy from the concert audience. “The more people try, the more they help.”
The group also partnered with One Tree Planted, a global non-profit organization for reforestation, to plant a tree for every ticket sold for the long-awaited tour.
5.4 million fans bought seats in the last round of Coldplay in 2016 and 2017, making it one of the largest of all time. The rockers reportedly made more than $ 500 million from the series.
Other steps for a ground-based trip include minimizing air travel and using sustainable aviation fuel when needed. The “Holiday Anthem” singers will also include reusable materials such as plants and plastic, bamboo in their shows and venues. They also encourage spectator members to download a transportation app that helps them travel to arenas using the cheapest emissions.
Martin said that despite all their good efforts, the group has made only “50%” of environmentally friendly changes, and one day they will be fully realized.
“We’re trying our best and we haven’t been able to achieve that,” he admitted, ready for a “backlash” for the group’s shortcomings in sustainability. “[But] If we had felt long enough and everything was good in our hearts, we would not have announced the tour. ”
He even said that Coldplay haters were “right” in embarrassing them by flying in private jets that pollute the air with harmful gases during the tour.
But when critics urge him to continue touring despite the damage he has done to our planet, Martin says, “We don’t really have a return, we want to.
“We could have stayed at home, and it could have been better,” he continued, “but we want to travel and meet people and socialize with people – so try to do it as cleanly as possible. “
