Forget “Yellow”—it’s all about going green for Coldplay now. Back in November 2019, the British band announced it wouldn’t tour again until it could make the process not only sustainable but “actively beneficial” to the planet.

In the U.K. alone, the British Arts Council estimates that live music produces almost 450,000 tons (405,000 tonnes) of greenhouse gas emissions each year; something the band didn’t want to exacerbate.

Fast-forward three years and the band is halfway through its 105-night sell-out “Music of the Spheres” tour.

Described by critics as “one massive, euphoric sing-along,” the show is set in space, and offers the same kaleidoscopic color, magic and atmosphere the band’s live shows are known for.
