One of the hottest live acts of the moment: Grammy and Mercury Prize nominated The 1975, are bringing their critically-acclaimed live show to the Coca-Cola Arena this August. Fresh from breathtaking headline performances at Coachella and Lollapalooza and ahead of topping the bill at Reading and Leeds Festivals, THE 1975 are set to thrill UAE-based fans with the high-energy and innovative live show that the band have become famous for the world over!
The cutting-edge four-piece from Manchester, led by the ever-dynamic Matt Healey on vocals, have been touring and releasing music as THE 1975 since 2012, although the band have been playing together since 2002 under various monikers. Their sound, which is a hybrid of soulful rhythm and blues meets rock and pop, combined with three number one albums, each taking the listener on an authentic musical journey where no two songs sound alike, has projected the band into celebrity status. THE 1975 are without doubt one of the most exciting live bands in the world right now and those attending the gig can expect a high energy performance of enigmatic songs with a backdrop of phenomenal stage production, in a show that is receiving rave reviews everywhere.
