The 1975 are coming home (yes, again), announcing details of a massive Manchester gig for early next year.

The hugely popular pop-rock group, led by the internet’s favourite frontman Matty Healy, will be back on stage at the AO Arena.

It’s as part of the UK and European leg of their Still… At Their Very Best tour, and will hit the north west in February, with tickets on sale next week.

The 1975‘s new tour dates will be their biggest-ever shows in Europe, also including two nights at The O2 in London.

This last run of shows – spanning the depth and breadth of Europe between February and March – will wrap up their ‘Being Funny In A Foreign Language’ campaign.


It means we can start looking forward to plenty more antics from the group, from them making post-gig drinks in Bunny Jackson’s (that happened twice!) to bringing out Taylor Swift on stage to getting banned from an entire country for snogging each other on stage.

They performed here back in January of this year, to rave reviews from The Manc.

And now The 1975 have dropped even more tour dates, with a Manchester AO Arena gig slotted in on 18 February 2024 (with space between other shows for extra hometown gigs… just saying).

Their previous ‘At Their Very Best’ spanned nine months and sold half a million tickets, wowing crowds with surprise appearances, impressive staging, and plenty of autotuned yelling.

They’re promising an even bigger and better production for the next shows, too.


The 1975 have also announced a number of limited-edition formats of their debut album ‘The 1975’, including a live recording of their intimate gig at Gorilla, where they played it in full,

Tickets for The 1975 will be available through an Exclusive Fan Presale on Wednesday 6 September at 10am local time, with tickets then on general sale through See Tickets on Friday 8 September at 10am local time.
