Coldplay decides not to tour due to environmental reasons
LONDON - The British band Coldplay has decided not to launch a global tour because of environmental concerns.
Frontman Chris Martin told the BBC Thursday that the band is not going on tour to promote its latest album because it wants to take time to determine how a tour can be beneficial to the environment.
He said: “We would be disappointed if it’s not carbon neutral.”
