(CelebrityAccess) — Coldplay’s Chris Martin announced that the band will put its live concert plans on hiatus while it finds a way to make its touring less environmentally impactful.
Martin told the BBC that the group plans to take the next year or two to weigh changes that will make future tours more sustainable and even “actively beneficial.”
“How can we harness the resources that our tour creates and make it have a positive impact?” Martin told the BBC.
“All of us, in every industry, have to just work out what the best way of doing our job is,” he added.
Some of the concepts Martin floated, such as no single-use plastics and a shift to renewable power have already begun to be implemented in the industry.
Coldplay’s eight studio album “Everyday Life” is due on Nov 22nd via Parlophone. Coldplay will perform two live shows in Amman, Jordan on Friday to mark the release and are scheduled for a live performance at the Natural History Museum in London next week.
