If you were at The 1975’s show in Manchester, we’re jealous of you. Beyond the obvious reason, the band performed their debut album. Fans in attendance had no idea it was coming and if we were there, we would have felt all the emotions. This was a more intimate show than we’ve seen from the band while they’ve been on tour in support of their new album, Being Funny in a Foreign Language. Fans got to feel up close and personal, all while listening to the songs that made them fall in love with the band in the first place. During the performance, Matty Healy said, “Hardcore fans will know what we’re up to right now. I want to remind you that nostalgia is a sickness. This is not nostalgic. We wouldn’t be doing this if we weren’t only getting really good. We’re just starting to make our best work, so I don’t mind doing something that’s slightly nostalgic. Because it’s just for us isn’t it?” Check out part of the live performance below!
