Coldplay announced it will not go on tour to promote its new album because of the environmental damage it might cause. Rock bands usually accompany a new album release with a world tour. Concert tours are money-spinners and can make more profits than music sales. Coldplay thinks a tour would have a negative impact on the environment. Lead singer Chris Martin said the band wanted any future tours to "have a positive impact" on the environment.
Coldplay is looking at how tours can be more environmentally friendly. Mr Martin wants future tours to be "actively beneficial and care about the environment. He would be disappointed a tour was not carbon neutral. The band's new double album, "Everyday Life," reflects the band's feelings about the environment. Coldplay will put on a one-off concert for their fans in London. All of the money from this will be donated to an environmental charity.
