The 1975 say playing arenas is ‘necessary’ for ‘I Like It When You Sleep…’ tour

The band also promised to return to smaller venues in the future

The 1975 have described playing arenas as “necessary” for their upcoming tour promoting second album ‘I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It‘.

The band took part in an AMA session on Tumblr yesterday (July 29) and were asked by one fan if, now they are selling out arenas, fans could expect to see them at Wembley Stadium soon.

The group responded: “Who knows! We would love to but we will also be returning to theatres and halls in the future we don’t just wanna play arenas. We will play whatever our show at the time requires. For the end of the ‘I like it when you sleep..’ era arenas are necessary.”

The 1975 will play seven dates in December, including two nights at The O2.

Elsewhere in the AMA, the band also revealed that the forthcoming tour will be “an extension of our previous shows” and the life lesson they wanted to tell kids.

“The empowerment of women is the most important thing – for everything. The progression of everything necessary and positive,” they wrote.

The 1975 will play:

Manchester, Manchester Arena (December 13)
London, The O2 (15)
London, The O2 (16) SOLD OUT
Newcastle, Metro Radio Arena (17)
Glasgow, The SSE Hydro (19)
Bournemouth, BIC (21)
Cardiff, Motorpoint Arena (22)
