The 1975 sell out London’s O2 in just three hours

Band will play their biggest UK headline show to date this December

The 1975 have sold out their biggest UK headline show to date, doing so in just three hours.

The band will take to the stage at The O2, London on December 16 for a massive gig with “expanded visuals and a brand new set list”. This will include songs they have never played live before.

Tickets for the show went on sale at 9am today (Friday, June 10), selling out three hours later.

The 1975 released their second album ‘I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It’ in February and saw it debut at Number One in both the US and UK. Their debut album ‘The 1975’ also reached Number One in the UK when it came out in 2013.
