The 1975 Live Review

The repetitive guitar line from hit single, Give Yourself A Try, starts to play. The lights go up. Out jumps Matty Healy, bouncing up and down relishing the cheering form the crowd. An energetic start to the show, setting the scene for what’s to come.

With three number one albums, The 1975 are the hottest band on the scene right now. Their lack of genre makes their sound unique and special, enticing young people all around the world. A sell-out band that loves to put on a show, never disappoint.

After taking a years break, the band came together after lead singer, Matty Healy, has returned from rehab in Barbados. Full of creative ideas, they get writing, releasing their third studio album, A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships in November 2018. In March, we can expect their fourth studio album from their Music for Cars era, Notes On A Conditional Form.

A visually pleasing performance, with The Box (part of the band’s branding) as one of the main features to the show. From performing Girls with a gallery of eyes behind them, to performing in the heart of an iPhone, this band know how to put on a spectacle.

With lights blinding the audience and a technical visual sight, the set was extraordinary. The Pride flag took centre stage in hit single, Loving Someone, then transitioning through a static screen to Healy performing inside an iPhone for The Ballad of Me and My Brain. Throughout the night, the audience were graced with an aesthetic sight, and two dancers to try and keep up with.

The recreation of the music video for Sincerity is Scary, their fourth single from their most recent album, went down very well. Dancing wholeheartedly on a treadmill going across the stage, Healy was even wearing the rabbit eared hat that he wore in the music video – later seen on sale as merchandise.

Between songs, Robbers and fallingforyou, a couple got engaged and the reception was heart-warming. The band were ecstatic that they could share the moment with Jack and his fiancé Charlotte. Healy taking their phone and recording himself singing the next song, dedicating fallingforyou to them. I’m sure that will be their first dance song now!

The crowd were singing the lyrics back to the band throughout the night, more so on the very last song, Sex. The line between the main set and the encore was blurred but it meant more time to be energetic. As the crowd dispersed, people were panting and puffing due to Healy getting everyone to jump for the last two songs, The Sound and Sex.

Ending the show on a high, people piled out of the arena chatting about their favourite moments of the show. Mine? I can’t choose just one. The near 2 hour set was insane it was by far one of the most amazing live shows I’ve seen.

Have you seen The 1975 live?

Until next time...
