Hey music fans!! I’m back with another tour review and I’m excited about this one!
My niece introduced me to The 1975 a while back and I really enjoyed listening to them. For Christmas this past year, her mom and I surprised her with tickets to see them live for the first time. She was stoked (and so was I!), but had to wait until May 11 for the show. Talk about torture!
Anyway, last night was the show and it was held at Bayfront Park Amphitheater in Downtown Miami. I’d never been to the venue, but I’d definitely go there again!
If you’re not familiar with The 1975, here’s a bit of info about them:
Hailing from Manchester, U.K., The 1975 is an alternative rock band clearly influenced by a wide range of musical styles. The band consists of Matt Healy (lead singer and guitarist), George Daniel (drums, backing vocals), Adam Hann (guitar, keyboards, backing vocals) and Ross MacDonald (bass, keyboard, backing vocals). After releasing three EP’s over the course of their musical career, the band released their self-titled debut album, The 1975, in 2013 and their latest album, I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful yet So Unaware, in 2016.
The show started at about 8 pm with Wolf Alice and The Japanese House as opening acts. The 1975 came out and played non-stop until the very end. Unfortunately, their drummer (George) was unable to play due to a broken shoulder, but the drummer from one of their opening acts saved the day and did a great job! The sound at the venue was great, the crowd was energetic and the band seemed to play off of that. One couple even got engaged during fallingforyou, which was cute. Even the stage setup was great. They had huge screens that lit up behind them to cover the entire stage, with their signature rectangles floating above them. To sum it up, the show was great and I would definitely see them live again.
