The 1975 with Pale Waves and No Rome
Ascend Amphitheater
Wed, May 15 7:00 pm


The rock band from Manchester, England known as The 1975 announced their international touring plans for the coming year on Monday. The lengthy run of shows will give the popular group plenty of opportunities to introduce the fresh tunes from the forthcoming album, A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships. The studio album is their first collection of songs released since 2016’s I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful yet So Unaware of It, which became the band's first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart.   The 1975's 2019 tour schedule will start out with a run of dates in Ireland and the U.K. throughout January. The tour picks up again closer to the spring with a one-off gig in Mexico before the 21-show North American leg begins in Phoenix on April 15, and running until June 3 with a final gig on Toronto. Fans should note that Los Angeles and New York regions have been left off the schedule, leading for speculation that the band could be making stops at Coachella, GovBall or Boston Calling come festival season. They'll be joined on select dates by Pale Waves and No Rome. The band also took the opportunity to share their new music video for the previously released single, “Love It If We Made It.” The colorful video can be watched in full above and touches on a handful of hot current events ranging from politics to social justice. Images of police brutality and police protests match Matthew Healy’s lyrics in singing, “Saying controversial things just for the hell of it/Selling melanin and then suffocate the black men/Start with misdemeanors and we'll make a business out of them.” Other previously released singles that will appear on A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships when it arrives next month include “Give Yourself A Try,” “TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME” and “Sincerity Is Scary.”
