What's more, the UK band will also drop two new songs, "Daddy" and "Champion of the World" in addition to the show.

In an interview with BBC News, frontman Chris Martin explained that the band won't tour until concerts are environment-friendly. Martin, who previously filed restraining order for a crazy fan, further added,

We're taking time, over the next year or two, to work out how can not only our tour be sustainable, but how can it be actively beneficial? How can we harness the resources that our tour creates and make it have a positive impact?

Well, Coldplay is not only the musical act to address the impact of touring on the environment. Billie Eilish recently announced to make her March tour the “Billie Eilish Eco-Village”, where fans can learn about their role in the climate crisis.

Meanwhile, musical festivals are also pressurized to go green and similarly, more than 60 major festivals have pledged to go plastic-free till 2021.
