The announcement of the band’s Manila concerts follows news of their return to Bangkok, Thailand on April 4 next year. The band will perform at the 11,000-capacity Impact Arena, with tickets set to go on sale this November 2 with tiered options available at THB2,500, THB3,500, THB4,500, THB5,00, THB5,500, THB6,000 and THB6,500.

The band have not indicated if additional Asia tour dates will be announced, though they previously announced a four-date Japan tour set for late April 2023 that will mark their first performance in Asia since September 2019.

Their April calendar also features a tour in Australia and New Zealand that includes stops in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland before making their way to Japan.

The 1975 released their fifth album ‘Being Funny In A Foreign Language’ on October 14. The record earned a stellar four-star review from NME’s El Hunt, who called the record “succinct” and “cuttingly self-aware” while serving up some of the band’s most direct pop hits.

Hunt wrote, “‘Being Funny In A Foreign Language’ feels like the right next step after pushing experimental excess to its logical conclusion,” adding, “The 1975: At Their Very Best – the lofty, and slightly tongue-in-cheek title they’ve given to their upcoming tour – might be infuriatingly, brilliantly cocky, but let’s face facts: it’s also pretty accurate.”
