The 1975 are an indie rock band from Manchester, England, fronted by Matt Healy, alongside Ross MacDonald, Adam Hann, and George Daniel.
The band formed in 2002, releasing two EPs, ‘Facedown’ and ‘Sex’, before their self-titled debut hit shelves in 2013 and topped the UK Album Chart. In 2015, following a brief hiatus and rumours that they had split, the band confirmed their return and released their second album, 'I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It' in February 2016.
The band have played headline tours around the UK, Ireland Europe and both North and South America.
Now, The 1975 have big plans for 2019 - heading out on a huge tour of the UK, Ireland, US and Canada supporting their November 2018 album, 'A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’.
They also headline Reading and Leeds Festivals, Glasgow's Summer Sessions and play a February London show in aid of Warchild UK. What a busy year. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and ticket information on Stereoboard below.

I saw them live at xfm's winter wonderland and thought they were amazing, can't believe all the tickets sold out in under a minute though! Would really love to see them again they were just so good, they are incredible live performers. They were so involved with the crowd, it was nice to see them back where they originated.
Lets be honest, I could write any amount of bad words here and nobody will care. The 1975 cannot put a foot wrong at the moment. They are the buzz band of the moment. Incredible. There live shows are something special, you cant help but wonder what dizzy heights they would have scaled come a few more years of recording and touring. Reading and Leeds headliners? Glastonbury? The set was one of the best Ive heard and I enjoyed every minute of the gig. Superb atmosphere and cant wait for some more new material.
I love their debut album so I was a a bit worried they wouldnt match up to it on the stage, however, the proved me wrong and every bit of the gig was amazing! They kept the audience interested, even though they only have one album, and the atmosphere was buzzing. The guys really did seem to be thrilled to be on stage performing. I loved them that much I'm going back in February, woooooo! I LOVE THE 1975!
#1 album, chart-topping singles and sell out tours...

Fresh from the release of their #1 self-titled debut album, the 1975 performed to a sold out crowd in the capital, a crowd who has clearly been swotting up on the lyrics to every one of the band's songs. Their hit heavy set gets its biggest cheers for singles The City, Sex, as well as show closer Chocolate.
Its been a dream start for The 1975. A #1 debut album, chart-topping singles and sold out tours. Demand for this band is huge and here's hoping they are around for years to come!

It can sometimes be difficult for an artist to capture the zeitgeist. Even if they know what to say, they often struggle to find the right way to say it. Not so for Matt Healy and his 1975, who haven’t just captured the zeitgeist—they’ve wrestled it into submission, stuffed it in a cage and made it perform tricks for our amusement.
