The 1975 – Columbus 5/5

“This is the biggest show we’ve played outside of Manchester,” said vocalist Matthew Healy of The 1975 as he stood in front of thousands of fans in the heart of Ohio.

Hands were in the air, drinks were in the air and everyone sang their version of “Chocolate” as loud as they could (Let’s be honest, no one knows all the words to that song). If Columbus isn’t the band’s new home away from home, we want to know where is.

As we stood outside amongst the crowd, while bright white lights reflected of the happiest of faces, we realized everyone, literally, everyone loves The 1975. Their music is infectious and has grabbed an eclectic group of fans, loyal fans. We’d like to dub these guys as the “Kings of Columbus.” Why? Because the guys sold out The Newport, so the show was moved to The LC. LC sold out so the show got pushed outdoors to accommodate the high demand of tickets. Then guess what? The LC outdoor venue sold out. We’ve heard of shows being moved once but THREE times? That’s Columbus charm.


There are bands that put on a show and there are bands that put on A SHOW. These guys love their fans and love to perform. DO NOT miss them when they come to a city near you.
