Matty Healy and co. had originally planned to play the north London park back in 2020, only for it to be rescheduled (no points as to guessing why).
However, their wishes are now set to be fulfilled this summer with a show that will be supported by Cigarettes After Sex, Bleachers, The Japanese House and American Football – with more additions still to be announced.
The band are in something of a purple patch in recent times. Their win for Best Alternative/Rock group at the BRIT Awards over the weekend followed their UK number one album, Being Funny In A Foreign Language, released in October, and comes off the back of their lauded At Their Very Best tour, footage from which was frequently something of an internet sensation.
(What’s more, in the run-up to the BRITs, they played a blinding show at Manchester’s 550-capacity Gorilla venue in support of charity War Child; where they played their self-titled debut from start to finish).
Support for their proposed 2020 Finsbury Park had included the likes of Charli XCX, Clairo, Phoebe Bridgers, Pale Waves and Beabadoobee. Such illustrious names makes it an intriguing prospect as to who else will support The 1975 at their biggest UK show to date.
Tickets for the show will go on sale this Friday, 17 February, with a pre-sale starting on Wednesday, 15th February. They can be bought from here.
