The 1975 have been working on some big plans for the end of their upcoming tour. On Sunday, the British pop-rock band’s frontman Matty Healy teased the idea of renting out a venue for a week to perform a different era of the group’s music on each night. Shortly after tweeting the thought, the singer announced that it is “officially happening” due to the positive reaction.
Healy wrote that the first night would consist of the band playing its EPs; the second would be their self-titled 2013 debut; the third would be their second set, I Like It When You Sleep…; the fourth would be their recent album, A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships; the fifth would be their upcoming album, Notes on a Conditional Form; and the final night would find the band playing their “greatest hits.”
Healy also noted that each concert would feature “the same lighting and production of each era.” The singer didn’t give a specific timeline for when the shows might occur, but noted they would come at the “end of campaign,” possibly meaning the group’s upcoming U.K. tour, which begins on 9 January in Belfast. Over the course of 2019, the band will tour through North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, South America and Asia. The last date listed on their website is 16 September in Singapore.
In late November, The 1975 released their third full-length album, A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships. The follow-up, Notes On A Conditional Form, is slated to arrive in May 2019.
The 1975 recently scored their second No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums and Alternative Albums charts when A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships opened atop both lists with 66,000 equivalent units earned, according to Nielsen Music. Inquiry follows The 1975’s previous album, I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It, which also bowed at No. 1 on both charts dated March 19, 2016. The new album concurrently debuted at No. 4 on the all-format Billboard 200.
