  • British band Coldplay on Friday (Nov 22) won plaudits for shelving a new album tour over environmental concerns.
  • The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) praised the move, as the group released its latest album – “Everyday Life” – with only two gigs, both in the Jordanian capital Amman.
  • Powerful Thinking, a think-tank focused on the festival industry, estimates the events generate some 23,500 tonnes of waste each year in the country.
