It's pathetic it takes a global catastrophe (Oil) to make people think.

I rode a bike to work and back every day in Katsushika Ku, along the rivers. Twenty minutes tops to work. No trains to wait on.

What a bunch of fools. You pay $50 - $100+ for a concert ticket, and then spend half the show riding a bike to help the millionaire artists feel better about themselves.

Live Nation averages around 30,000 concerts/festivals per year (lower the lat few years due to Covid). The overwhelming majority of those are not engaged in any of the practices mentioned in this article - just the usual diesel tractor trailer fleet for each artist's tour dates, diesel bus fleet, air cargo flights, plastic everything for the food vendors, massive carbon footprint per artist/per tour/globally.

Coldplay will also be riding bicycles whenever possible too right?

They had talked about this well before Covid, I give them credit for that.

They've been recycling their material since the album Parachutes.

More power to them.

A noble effort but Willie Nelson has spearheading that for a long time. And Coldplay are dull insipid U2-wannabes at best. Even Bono has said so.

How much diesel will be used to haul those bikes and the dance floor around between venues?
