Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Having headlined Reading & Leeds Festival last year, the internationally acclaimed The 1975 have announced a huge one day show at London’s Finsbury Park.
Originally scheduled to take place this summer, the band will now take to London’s Finsbury Park on Saturday 10 July 2021 (subject to contract). Original tickets remain valid.
The announcement comes as the band prepare for the imminent release of their highly anticipated fourth studio album Notes On A Conditional Form, and the unveiling of their latest single If You’re Too Shy (Let Me Know).
It’s the seventh track to be unveiled from the record, their follow up to 2018’s A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships, having already revealed the likes of punk-infused People, the Greta Thunberg-featuring intro track The 1975, and Jesus Christ 2005 God Bless America alongside singer-songwriter Phoebe Bridgers.
The band will focus on green initiatives across the Finsbury Park show, including powering the entire event with sustainably sourced HVO fuel from Europe. It will also be the first paperless show in Finsbury Park, using only digital tickets.
Event organisers Festival Republic pledged to plant 1,975 trees throughout the boroughs of Hackney, Haringey and Islington in partnership with Trees for Cities, while the band themselves will plant a tree across the globe for every ticket sold.
Bringing a repetoire including huge hits Give Yourself A Try, Somebody Else and Chocolate, to Finsbury Park, The 1975 will perform on Saturday 10 July 2021.
More artists are set to be announced.
Original tickets remain valid. Additional tickets for The 1975 at Finsbury Park in London are available now through Ticketmaster.co.uk.
