Fans are already lining up outside of the Athens Olympic Stadium (OAKA) to secure a good viewing point in the arena for tonight’s Coldplay concert.

Coldplay is in Greece’s capital, tonight and tomorrow night, for the Athens’ leg of the band’s sold-out “Music of the Spheres” World Tour. According to a post of the bank on X, an estimated 122,000 tickets have been sold.

Gates for the concert will open at 17:00 and ticketholders of this weekend’s performances have received a message earlier this week with instructions on how to access the event and rules about what can be brought in, which can also be found here.

Coldplay is a British rock band, started in 1997, and has sold over 100 million albums worldwide, making them one of the most successful music acts of all time.

The band is not only known for its music, but for its remarkable climate action initiatives and commitment to reducing the carbon footprint and overall environmental impact of its shows.

These initiatives encompass constructing stages that harness kinetic energy to produce renewable energy for powering the concert, promoting the use of zero-emission transportation among attendees for arriving at the event, and prohibiting the use of single-use plastics at the venue.
