The 1975 Concert Review – It’s The Sound of Victory for the Manchester Rockstars

The 1975 take the stage at their biggest sold out show to date. 

The Indie Band end their successful year by bringing the 02 arena to life with funk rock.

 

Star Rating:  4/7

Following the triumphant release of their second album ‘I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It’, the Manchester Band proved to be worthy of their Q Award for ‘Best Album’ during their sold out 02 arena gig.

Opening the show with upbeat track ‘Love Me’ and performing crowd pleasers such as ‘The Sound’, The 1975 had the arena on their feet from the beginning. Each member possessed the skill of performing on a variety of Instruments to express their passion for music, demonstrating to be true showmen. Lead Singer, Matt Healy, wasn’t identified without a glass of Red Wine and took the opportunity to have a barely distinguishably rant about Politics. Regardless of the singers intoxication, a feel good atmosphere still maintained.

I was apprehensive whether the band that I once saw on a small stage at Reading Festival, could take on an Arena. But I wrong, as they have proven to be a phenomenal act. This may be the end to an incredible year for The 1975, but their journey has just started to arise.

When and Where: 16th December 2016, at The 02 Arena, Peninsula Square, London SE10 0DX.
