The secret is finally out…

The 1975 have announced information of the largest show of their career, as ‘The Sound’ stars are set for The O2 Arena in London. Complete dates and ticket particulars are beneath, and tickets will be available here.


Last week saw the band tease fans with news of massive shows around the world, but kept the locations a secret. 


Right after their magnificent show at Brixtn Academy earlier this year, it has now been revealed that ‘City’ and ‘Somebody Else’ chart-toppers will be performing at The O2 in London on Friday 16 December. Tickets are on sale from 9am on Friday ten June and will be offered here. 


“The show will form portion of a series of concerts that will be toured worldwide, with expanded visuals and a brand new set list including songs that have never ever been played live,” reads a statement. “The 1975’s continually evolving overall performance will fuse art and technologies to produce a unique reside expertise.”



This comes following frontman Matt Healy made headlines for saying that dating Taylor Swift would have been a ‘demasculinating’ knowledge, and taking aim at the Conservative Government for appropriating a really related logo to theirs for their EU referendum campaign. 


It’s been a runaway year of good results for The 1975, following topping the charts with their enormous second album, I Like It When You Sleep For You Are So Lovely Yet Unaware Of It. 


Reviewing the record, we hailed it as ‘a trojan horse filled with nuances and surprising sounds’.


“The truth is, that these cuts act as a trojan horse to unload an album filled with nuances and idiosyncrasies. I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Lovely Yet So Unaware Of It is far more than pop.


“The eclecticism of this band is practically nothing brief of remarkable. I Like It When You Sleep is a record that owes as significantly to M83 as it does Madonna. In a world of beige pop, we welcome this flourish of colour. Exceeding the national average, excelling in pop and smashing your expectations – accept nothing at all significantly less from The 1975.”
