English pop rock band, The 1975, delivered a stunning performance of “Oh Caroline” on NBC’s Saturday Night Live earlier last month, where the band featured as the musical guest alongside host Jenna Ortega and also showcased its previous single “I’m In Love With You.”
Last month saw the band crowned ‘Best Rock/Alternative Act’ at the 2023 BRIT Awards before announcing its biggest-ever headline show at London’s Finsbury Park. Taking place on July 2, the band will be topping an incredible bill featuring Cigarettes After Sex, Jack Antonoff’s Bleachers, The Japanese House, and American Football, with the tickets selling out within two minutes of going on sale.
The band is currently touring its new At Their Very Best show, taking in arenas across USA, Canada, UK and Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Asia over the next twelve months, with over 500 thousand tickets sold to date.
Between the impressive staging, high-concept performance art, surprise appearances from friends like Phoebe Bridgers, Jack Antonoff, and Taylor Swift, and the excess of viral moments, the tour has been lauded as a band truly in its prime.
Formed in Manchester in 2002, The 1975 has established itself as one of the defining bands of its generation with its distinctive aesthetic, ardent fanbase, and unique sonic approach.
Released last October, the band’s fifth studio album Being Funny In A Foreign Language was met with lavish praise, with The FACE labeling it “an album of massive tunes, pristine production, and sincere romanticism” and Rolling Stone US vowing the album sees the band “reassert themselves at the forefront of 2020s pop-rock.”
