Resuming their North American journey, which originally ignited in the summer of 2022 with electric shows in metropolises like Chicago and New York, the band is making their Emerald City stop part of a broader West Coast swing that includes Vancouver, San Diego, and Pasadena, California. The Music of the Spheres tour is projected to keep the band on the road until 2024.
Returning to the live music scene after a hiatus that followed their 2019 album “Everyday Life,” Coldplay has committed to an eco-friendly touring model. The band spent over two years meticulously crafting a plan that aims to slice CO2 emissions in half. Their mission statement underscores a pledge to make the tour “environmentally beneficial,” offsetting its carbon footprint by investing in nature-focused and technology-based projects.
In a partnership with logistics giant DHL, Coldplay is pioneering new sustainability standards in the industry. From opting for commercial flights to utilizing electric vehicles and biofuel, the band is taking robust measures to limit their environmental impact. Even the concert stages are constructed with lightweight, low-carbon, reusable materials, including recycled steel.
A blend of Coldplay’s iconic hits like “Something Just Like This,” “A Sky Full of Stars,” and “Viva la Vida” have dominated the setlists, much to the delight of their global fan base. And the numbers speak volumes: According to Billboard’s August 2023 report, the Music of the Spheres World Tour has already raked in an eye-popping $617.8 million from 6.3 million tickets sold, catapulting it into the stratosphere as the fourth-highest-grossing concert tour in history.
