The 1975 UK Tour 2023; when will the band play London and when are tickets on sale?

Having headlined Leeds and Reading Festival, Matt Healy and company announced a full UK Tour for 2023.

This year’s Leeds and Reading headliners The 1975 have announced this morning a full UK tour, in support of their upcoming album, Being Funny in a Foreign Language, out October 14 2022.

The band announced the UK tour on Twitter on September 1 2022, after successfully filling in for Rage Against The Machine’s headline slot at the August Bank Holiday festivals, with tickets bundled with pre-sales of their forthcoming album.

But with those tickets selling out fast, the reminder this morning about the show’s general admission has undoubtedly sparked an interest in once again getting a chance to see the Cheshire formed, Manchester based group.

    The 1975 are an English pop rock band formed in 2002 in Wilmslow, Cheshire and consists of lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Matthew "Matty" Healy, lead guitarist Adam Hann, bassist Ross MacDonald, and drummer George Daniel.

    The band’s origins are traced to their attendance at Wilmslow High School and playing together as teenagers. Gigs, organised by a council worker, led the band to sign with Dirty Hit and Polydor Records.

    The band opened for several major acts and released a series of extended plays (Facedown, Sex, Music for Cars, IV) throughout 2012 before releasing their UK chart-topping self-titled debut album (2013), which included the popular singles "Sex", "Chocolate", and "Robbers".

    The 1975 has garnered acclaim for their relevant lyricism and exploration of an eclectic range of genres such as pop rock, synth-pop, R&B, electropop, new wave forms of electronic music and forms of rock music as well as elements of jazz, soul and gospel.

    When are The 1975 playing London?

    The 1975 will be playing London’s The O2 on January 12 2023, with doors opening for the event at 6:30pm.
