Coldplay recently has decided to introduce stationary bikes for their own Inexperienced Tour. In fact, it is actually the energy-storing stationary bike. Other than that, they also introduce kinetic dance floors. By doing that, the band also indirectly promotes all the fans that attend to help power up the show. This is especially when they are dancing.
This is indeed to make the tour more environmentally friendly. Guy Berryman who is the bassist of the man said, “That’s the way it will bed in, if people see it less as a sort of onerous responsibility and more as a kind of opportunity to do something fun and it’s a benefit to the environment and to the whole concert experience”. So great of them.
1) Kinetic Dance Floors
This particular dance floor can hold up to a total of dozens of people. To generate electricity, movement helps a lot on the kinetic dance floors. That is how the tour is more environmentally friendly.
2) Energy-Storing Stationary Bike
The minimum amount of 15 energy-storing stationary bikes or even a higher number according to the venue size are able to create an average of 200 watts of energy. The correlation with the tour would be that the energy from the bikes is then located in the batteries that are responsible to control the elements of the tour.
Previously, the Coldplay band has long been proponents of green initiatives and looking to stop garbage to reach the ocean with the Interceptor 005, a machine built by the Dutch non-profit organization The Ocean Cleanup.
