We are excited to share this incredible fundraising initiative thanks to a collaboration between global music icons Coldplay and The guitarwrist.
The guitarwrist is a not-for-profit company that makes bespoke jewellery from artists’ used guitar strings with the profits going to their charity of choice. We are very honoured that Coldplay have chosen Music Support as their charity of choice, donating strings played by Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland on their current “Music of the Spheres” World Tour. Each item comes with a letter of authentication, serial number and luxury presentation case.
The funds raised by this special project will contribute towards Music Support’s core services in helping our peers who work in music and live events affected by mental ill-health and/or addiction. Find out what a difference every penny raised can make here.

The album entered the UK charts at Number One, becoming the fastest-selling album of 2021. The band’s acclaimed Music Of The Spheres World Tour is taking them to stadiums around the globe in 2022 and 2023, with more than 5.4 million tickets already sold.
The tour is accompanied by a comprehensive set of sustainability initiatives which include a show powered by 100% renewable energy in almost all locations; the world’s first tourable battery system; kinetic dancefloors allowing fans to help power the show; solar panels and wind turbines at every venue; a pledge to cut tour emissions by 50%; incentives to encourage fans to travel by green transport; and one tree planted for every ticket sold.
