COLDPLAY TOUR 2022: TICKETS, PRE-SALE, ALBUM EARLY ACCESS, UK DATES AND VENUES FOR WORLD TOUR
Coldplay have announced a six-month world tour taking place next year, which they promise will be as “sustainable as possible”.
The band’s “Music Of The Spheres” stadium shows will be powered with rechargeable batteries fuelled by renewable sources.
Their ambition is to make their concerts more environmentally friendly and to have one of the greenest tours in history.
When is the Coldplay 2022 tour?
Coldplay’s tour lasts from March until September, with stadium shows in Europe and across North and South America.
There are four dates in the UK in August, with three performances at Wembley Stadium (Friday 12th, Saturday 13th and Tuesday 16th) before a night at Glasgow’s Hampden Park Stadium on Tuesday 23rd.
H.E.R will provide support for three of the days, with London Grammar appearing at the final London show – the two acts are appearing at the majority of the shows throughout the tour.
Tickets for these shows will then go on general sale from Friday 22 October
How will the Coldplay tour be ‘sustainable’?
The band 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.”
Frontman Chris Martin said in 2019 that they would not launch a globe-trotting tour for their previous album Everyday Life because of environmental concerns.
This time their global tour will be supported by a “show battery”, supplied by BMW, which will be recharged using solar power and generators powered by hydrotreated vegetable oil.
Fans will also be able to generate electricity for the concert through a kinetic stadium floor and power bikes.
Martin said: “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.”
These alternatives will replace the usual diesel and petrol generators, which will reduce the carbon footprint of the concerts.
