Coldplay's next tour will partly be powered by fans jumping up and down

Coldplay's next tour will partly be powered by a dancefloor that generates electricity when fans jump up and down, and pedal power at the venues.
The concerts will use electricity from batteries fuelled by fan power as well as solar energy, recycled cooking oil from local restaurants and mains power from 100% renewable sources where available, like in Costa Rica.

It's part of a 12-point plan to cut their carbon footprint, two years after the band pledged not to tour until they could do so in a more sustainable way.

Chris Martin told the BBC about the plans that fans will be on "kinetic flooring".
"When they move, they power the concert," he said.
"And we have bicycles too that do the same thing," he added.
"The more people move, the more they're helping. You know when the frontman says, 'We need you to jump up and down'?
"When I say that, I literally really need you to jump up and down. Because if you don't, then the lights go out."

Coldplay will also plant a tree for every ticket sold.

The singer said he accepted there would be backlash about some of their activities, such as continuing to fly on private jets.
"I don't mind any backlash at all," he said. "We're trying our best, and we haven't got it perfect. Absolutely. We always have backlash for everything.
"And the people that give us backlash for that kind of thing, for flying, they're right. So we don't have any argument against that."

I mean... if they achieve this, it would be so fucking cool. And the planting trees and using recyclables thing is already amazing

This is actually a really good idea. Something like this could work for the Chromatica Ball comsidering Gaga's music is more suitable for jumping up and down than Coldplay's :messga:

This sounds like a good idea but I could see it being a mess in execution. :fail:
