1975

Mancunian indie rock band The 1975 are set to embark on a UK tour later this year – and it kicks off at Liverpool’s Guild of Students on November 9!

The band upset many fans last month after hinting at a imminent break-up via a cartoon posted on Instagram. Fortunately, the news of a new album and tour has quashed this rumour, though a letter written by lead singer Matt Healy stated that “only the most dedicated of fans will end up with tickets”, as they will only be performing for the one month in relatively small venues.

The reason for this small-scale tour was alluded to in the letter, with Matt confirming that they only want to play intimate shows “to fans who really want to be there”.

Unfortunately, at the time of writing all of the tickets have sold out, though eager fans should regularly check social media in case any more tickets become available.

The 1975 formed in 2002 after meeting at their high school, and started out playing mostly at their local club. Fast-forward ten years and it’s a different story; the band are now championed by Radio 1 and were included in their show: BBC Introducing 2012. The band released their début self-titled album in 2013, which subsequently went to number 1 and spawned three top fourty singles, their best selling being Chocolate.
