The 1975 at Margaret Court Arena
Stopping in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth, the tour will mark the bands first trip to Australia since January 2016, when front-man Matty Healy and his troops were just about to release their wildly popular and critically adored second record I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful yet So Unaware of It.
Certified Platinum in the UK, Gold in the US and hitting Number 1 in countries all over the world (including Australia), I Like It...’ was best described by Drowned in Sound as a “bold body of work that sounds effortless and odd and sophisticated.”
Hailed as 2016’s NME Album of the Year in 2016, it skyrocketed The 1975 into rare air occupied only by some of the biggest bands in the world. Tracks like ‘Love Me’, ‘The Sound’ and ‘Somebody Else’(just three of the staggering seven singles taken from the record) showcased the bands knack for razor sharp pop hooks which frame Healy’s impassioned vocals and dramatic lyricisms with inch-perfect precision.
They will be joined by incredible Filipino musician No Rome for this sold-out show, with the London-based star set to wow audiences with his trademark dream-pop sound including tracks from his brand new EP Crying In The Prettiest Places.
