Event: The 1975 tour – April 2023

Acclaimed English rockers The 1975 will return to New Zealand for the first time since 2020 for shows in Auckland on April 19 and Wellington on April 21 2023.

They will arrive in Aotearoa with a host of new tracks to perform from their forthcoming album, Being Funny In A Foreign Language, which is due for release on October 14. The band have recently released three singles from the album including I’m In Love With You, Happiness and Part Of The Band, their acclaimed comeback single which Pitchfork praised as “the kind of grand, playful pop song that only this band could pull off”. Being Funny In A Foreign Language will be the The 1975’s fifth studio album and is perhaps their most intimate yet. While the band’s past few records were brimming with massive production—programming and synths— Being Funny In A Foreign Language is rooted in performance.

The 1975’s previous record, 2020’s Notes On A Conditional Form became their fourth consecutive #1 album in the UK, reaching #4 in New Zealand. 2020 also saw them named NME’s ‘Band of the Decade’, following being crowned as ‘Best Group’ at the BRIT Awards in both 2017 & 2019. Their third studio album, A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships, also won ‘Mastercard British Album of the Year’ at the 2019 ceremony.
 
The 1975 made their long-awaited live comeback in August as they headlined Japan’s biggest rock festival Summer Sonic 2022 in Tokyo and Osaka before returning to the UK for two triumphant headline slots at the iconic Reading & Leeds Festival. The 2023 New Zealand dates are part the band’s ‘At Their Very Best’ tour which includes huge shows in North America, UK, Ireland, and Japan.
