The 1975 took to a sold out crowd in Boston, many of whom were waiting in line for two days to get up front for the show. The band’s hour and a half set covered their hits such as “Chocolate,” “Sex,” “Girls,” and “Robbers,” and touched on new songs such as the debut single “Love Me,” and other unreleased songs “She’s American” and “Change of Heart.” As someone who’s seen them before, I don’t think they’ve ever sounded so cohesive as a unit. Matty Healy’s vocals sound stronger than ever to match his always infectious stage presence, Adam Hann’s guitar playing had every dancing from the start of the night, and their criminally underrated rhythm section made up of bassist Ross MacDonald and George Daniel hold down the groove every time out. Plain and simple, this tour is a must see (if you can manage to get tickets).
The band also just announced another US headlining tour next spring. Tickets go on sale this month, and I highly recommend you get yours. This band is taking off in a major way, and I’m excited to hear what they have in store for the world.
