Astrid S announces her biggest ever, and first climate neutral, world tour ‘Astrid_S: World Tour Part One’, comprising of 49 dates across the UK, Europe and US. Alongside a selection of beloved hit tracks from her four EPs, Astrid S fans will experience a selection of exciting, long-awaited new music yet to be released. Tickets are on sale 15th November via Astrid’s Facebook page.
The ‘Astrid_S: World Tour Part One’ has been certified by the United Nations as an official signatory of UN’s Climate Neutral Now programme. To achieve this, Astrid partnered with Norwegian climate company CHOOOSE to measure, reduce and overcompensate the carbon footprint of her tour through UN-verified carbon credits. This was done by funding a closely selected CO2-reducing wind farm project in Vietnam verified by the United Nations, replacing oil and coal with renewable energy and creating better opportunities for the local population. Emissions are reduced twice as much as the initial footprint, making the tour not only climate neutral but ‘climate positive’.
“I’m going back on tour next year – my biggest tour yet! The past couple of years I’ve been lucky to tour as a support act for artists that I’m a big fan of and make new friends and fans along the way. But there is something special about going on a tour where everyone in the room came to see you. I can’t wait to bring this new show on the road with new music! It’s impossible to describe just how intense, exciting, scary and magically touring can be. I just hope someone will show up so I can keep on doing this for years and years because it makes me very happy.
On working with the UN and CHOOOSE:
“Caring for the environment and the generations to come should be at the core of every one of us. No one is perfect, but if everyone does a little it suddenly becomes a lot. Partnering with CHOOOSE is a way for me to take responsibility for my touring, and create a positive impact from doing what I love.”
For her biggest ever world tour, Astrid S will be playing 49 dates across the UK, Europe and the US, including one night at London’s O2 Academy Islington.
