🎥 Coldplay ready for backlash over eco-friendly world tour – BBC News #news #world

Coldplay’s next tour will partly be powered by a dancefloor that generates electricity when fans jump up and down, and pedal power at the venues.

It’s part of a 12-point plan to cut their carbon footprint, two years after the band pledged not to tour until they could do so in a more sustainable way.

Coldplay will also plant a tree for every ticket sold. On their last tour in 2016-17, they played to 5.4 million people. That made it one of the biggest tours of all time, earning more than $500m (£380m).

Singer Chris Martin said he accepted there would be backlash about some of their activities, such as continuing to fly on private jets.

“I don’t mind any backlash at all,” he said. “We’re trying our best, and we haven’t got it perfect. Absolutely. We always have backlash for everything.”
