The 1975 announce North American tour

The Cheshire band will visit the continent in the autumn

The 1975 have announced a North American tour.

Kicking off in Queens, New York with an appearance at The Meadows Music & Arts Festival on October 1-2, the band will then set off on the road throughout October and November, with their first headline US show in Phoenix, Arizona on October 13. Their first Canadian date will take place on October 23 in Calgary, Alberta.

The band will also play their first-ever tour dates in Mexico – three shows in Mexico City, Torreon and Chihuahua will take place ahead of the US and Canada legs of the tour during October 5-8.


This tour will serve as the prelude for their UK arena dates later this year. Beginning in their native Manchester on December 13, the band will play seven dates on their homecoming tour to round off 2016.
