The 1975 Plot Headlining North American Spring Tour
The 1975 announced a headlining North American tour in support of their breakout 2016 LP, I Like it When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It. The British art-pop quartet will open with a trio of dates in Mexico on April 9th before hitting venues throughout the U.S. and Canada. The trek includes a sold-out show at Madison Square Garden and will wrap in early June at Cincinnati, Ohio’s Bunbury Music Festival.
I Like it When You Sleep, full of Eightes-styled funk-pop and sleek synth hooks, hit Number One on the U.S. album charts. Despite its breezy arrangements, singer Matt Healy channeled a variety of dark subject matter – like depression, ruined relationships and drug use – to craft the songs.
“I’m not that mentally stable, if I’m honest with you,” the singer told Rolling Stone. “I don’t really venture very far out of the world of the 1975, and nobody judges me here, and I’m safe here. I make records, and then I get praised for my honesty. But it drives me crazy because it’s my whole life. And I can’t give my life to anybody else. And then I think, ‘Am I a narcissist?'”
