Coldplay is headlining the opening concert at Seattle’s new Climate Pledge Arena.

The show, which will mark Chris Martin and company’s first arena performance in nearly five years, takes place October 22. Tickets go on sale next Wednesday, September 15, at 10 a.m. PT.

For those unable to attend, the concert will stream live via Amazon Music.

The Climate Pledge Arena, which will also be the home of the new Seattle Kraken NHL expansion team, is described as the “first net zero carbon certified arena in the world operating on 100% renewable energy.” Coldpaly is a fitting opener, then, since Martin previously stated that he didn’t want to tour until the process could be made carbon neutral.

Meanwhile, Coldplay is gearing up to release a new album called Music of the Spheres on October 15. It includes the lead single “Higher Power.”
