Coldplay’s Music of the Spheres Tour Arrives at Seattle’s Lumen Field

Coldplay is all set to take their Music of the Spheres tour to Seattle’s Lumen Field, offering fans an exciting evening of music. The doors will open at 5 p.m., with the concert scheduled to kick off at 6:30 p.m.

Stellar Opening Acts: H.E.R. and 070 Shake

Before Coldplay graces the stage, the audience can enjoy performances from two talented acts: H.E.R. and 070 Shake. Notably, H.E.R. has previously opened for Coldplay during this tour.

A Tour of Cosmic Proportions

The Music of the Spheres tour initially launched in May and June 2022, featuring North American stops in prominent cities such as Chicago and New York. After returning to North America this month, Coldplay will continue their journey with stops in Vancouver, San Diego, and Pasadena, California. Remarkably, this extensive tour is set to span all the way through 2024.

A Sustainable Return to the Stage

This tour signifies Coldplay’s return to the live music scene after opting not to tour for their previous album, “Everyday Life,” released in 2019. Their decision was rooted in a commitment to environmental sustainability and finding eco-friendly ways to tour.

Coldplay’s website explains their eco-conscious approach: “Make the tour as environmentally beneficial as possible by funding a portfolio of nature- and technology-based projects and by drawing down significantly more CO2 than the tour produces.” The band has pledged to reduce the tour’s direct emissions by over 50% compared to their previous tour in 2016-17, collaborating with partners and suppliers to minimize impacts and emissions.

Reducing Carbon Footprints with Innovative Measures

In their pursuit of environmental responsibility, Coldplay is partnering with DHL and employing various measures to minimize emissions. These include opting for commercial flights, utilizing electric vehicles or biofuel, and constructing stages from lightweight, low-carbon, and reusable materials, including recycled steel.

Hit Songs and Record-Breaking Success

During this tour, Coldplay has treated fans to a collection of their most beloved songs, with hits like “Something Just Like This,” “A Sky Full of Stars,” “Viva la Vida,” “Adventure of a Lifetime,” and “Clocks” taking center stage, as per Set list stats.

A Tour of Remarkable Financial Success

In a testament to their enduring popularity, the Music of the Spheres World Tour has achieved significant financial success. According to Billboard’s August 2023 ranking, the tour has grossed an astounding $617.8 million from 6.3 million ticket sales, solidifying its position as the fourth-highest-grossing concert run of all time.
