The 1975 have announced details of a massive UK and Ireland tour, including an arena date here on home turf.

The Manchester-formed group have also released I’m In Love With You, the third single from their upcoming album Being Funny In A Foreign Language.

The At Their Very Best tour will come in support of their fifth studio album and will take them to arenas right across the country.

The 1975 made their live music comeback last month with a headline slot at Summer Sonic 2022 in Japan, before returning for two appearances at Reading and Leeds Festival.
