The 1975 conquered the O2 Arena in London

 

AMAZING is an understatement for what a great year it has been for The 1975 - this British rock band from Manchester conquered a lot of huge venues this year for their tour of their sophomore album, I Like It When You Sleep For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It. In fact, their last show before their holiday break is a sold out 2-night show at the infamous O2 Arena in London.

This four-member band has been around the indie-rock scene for couple of years now and been touring nonstop. They've released their first self-title album last 2013 and been touring all over the globe since then.

The band went hiatus for almost six months earlier this year doing nothing but focus on recording their second album in Los Angeles, California. Giving their fans only pink pictures of random things on Instagram and endless and typewritten poems by Matty Healy, band's front man, and vintage comic strips.

Rewind to early this summer wherein the band has pulled a stunt on their fans and deactivate all their account on social media for straight 24 hours. Which made their fans basically insane only just to realize that this is a rebirth of a much pinker than ever version of themselves.

Since then they've been huge on social media and cater to their dedicated audience as they tour all over the world. They've been known for passionate fans who waits in line for hours and even days just to get tickets for their shows and to buy their limited edition merchandise.

When they released the tickets for their upcoming show on O2, they were immediately sold out and they have to release more the day after. Which says a lot of their status being this huge name on music nowadays.

They've received an award from BBC as Best Live Lounge performance and also they are nominated for their deluxe box set in Grammy's 2016.
