Coldplay Won't Be Touring Again Until It's Environmentally Friendly

During an interview with the BBC ahead of the release, Martin admitted that the most hard thing to consider environmentally is having to rely on flying.

The Grammy-winning band made the announcement after flying to Jordon to perform two shows based on their new album, Everyday Life.

When it comes to the next tour, Martin said the band would be "disappointed if it's not carbon neutral".

Speaking from the Jordanian capital Amman, Martin said: "All of us, in every industry, have to just work out what the best way of doing our job is".

The British band Coldplay has decided not to launch a global tour because of environmental concerns.

He continued, "Our dream is to have a show with no single-use plastic, to have it be largely solar powered".

The last time that Coldplay embarked on a world tour, they reportedly played 122 shows across 5 continents.

"We've done a lot of big tours at this point", he said. How do we turn it around so it's not so much taking as giving?' Additionally, they will be celebrating the album's release with two shows in Jordan, the entirety of which will be livestreamed on YouTube.

Formed in London in 1996, Coldplay has been one of the most successful rock bands of the past two decades, earning seven Grammy awards and seeing all seven of its previous albums reach platinum status.

"If you've had the privilege of traveling around the world, you know we're all from the same place", said Martin. Martin told BBC News the album was inspired by the British news station's reports regarding an Afghan gardener who coped with constant violence in his country and a Nigerian composer's story surrounding leprosy.

According to the group's official website, all proceeds from the concert will go towards ClientEarth, a charitable organization which uses the law to protect the environment.
