The 1975 will play Stage AE on Halloween

Written by Scott Mervis on .

The1975Stage AE will be haunted by The 1975 on Oct. 31, which falls on a Monday night.

 

The British alt-rock band is touring on second album “I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It,” which topped the charts when it was released in February. The release was accompanied by an appearance on "Saturday Night Live" that lit up social media over the flamboyant, rock-star behavior of frontman Matt Healy.

 

Q magazine said of the album, “The UK’s most exciting young band mix hooks and atmosphere on their big statement. They could have played it safe but it’s an album that marks The 1975 out as a truly special band.”

Tickets are $40 ($45 day of show) and go on sale July 29 at ticketmaster.com. Pre-sale runs 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. July 28 with the password "north."
