The 1975 tickets are in high demand as the band currently sits on top of the pop-rock world. Hailing from England, The 1975 literally played on a L.A. rooftop yesterday, which was live steamed by Apple on their new Beats 1 platform. The impromptu show was only announced late Monday, after being teased on Apple’s Snapchat account throughout the day. The live stream/show was in preparation of their sophomore album I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it, which was released this morning. A world tour in support of the album will kick off in March.
The members of The 1975 have known each other since high school, all growing up in Manchester. They first gained worldwide attention after releasing their breakout single “Chocolate” in 2013. In the three years since “Chocolate” and the release of their debut self-titled album, the bands popularity has skyrocketed, resulting in a move from playing tiny clubs to arena size venues. The debut single “Love Me” from I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it has already racked up over 13 million plays on Spotify and was heralded by Billboard as “an impressive coming-of-age shift” for the band.
When asked about the interesting album title choice by Rolling Stone, frontman Matt Healy explained that it was “something I said to a girlfriend of mine at the time. Like all situations, I’m sure it wasn’t quite as poetic as it sounds,” While extremely unusual, the album definitely succeeds in grabbing the attention of those who may have otherwise passed it over.
The 1975’s album supporting tour will consist of a staggering 72 dates spanning Europe, North America and Japan. Some of the well-known U.S. venues they will play include the Red Rocks Amphitheater, Barclays Center, and LA’s Shrine Expo Hall. The band will also be making stops at festivals including Coachella and Firefly. The 1975 tickets for all dates are on sale now.
