Coldplay: When ‘Woke’ Becomes a Joke

November 22, 2019
Coldplay have announced that they will no longer tour unless their concerts can be carbon neutral. While a world without Coldplay may sound great, is the move a green PR stunt? Or is the future one without live music?

In a newsflash that will excite absolutely nobody, Coldplay are releasing a new album on Friday. The band, however, will not be touring the record, due to the environmental impact of taking a rock band on the road.

“We’re taking time over the next year or two, to work out how our tour can not only be sustainable [but] how can it be actively beneficial,” frontman Chris Martin told the BBC. “Our next tour will be the best possible version of a tour like that environmentally,” Martin said. “We would be disappointed if it’s not carbon neutral.”

Okay Chris Martin.

But what about the Audience?
25-50K people traveling for each event? Now, thats a ‘Collective Carbon Footprint’
Maybe consciously uncouple touring also?

While we’re at it: Maybe take the many Caribbean Vacations with a variety of Hollywood starlets down and stay home?
No?
