The band also embark on an arena tour in January
The 1975 have confirmed details of an intimate UK in-store gig. See full dates and ticket details below.
Following weeks of teasing and rumours, it has now been revealed that the band will play an intimate show at Przym in Kingston for Banquet Records’ New Slang night on November 29. Visit here for tickets and more information.
Another small gig in Camden is expected to be announced shortly.
In September, the band announced details of a huge UK tour at some of the country’s biggest venues, including London’s O2 Arena.
However, it seems the frontman is keen to treat the band’s fans to a more intimate performance. “2 tiny shows before Christmas,” he tweeted last month, before adding, “In Southern England (near where I live) I’m not missioning about in December no thankss” See those tweets below.
Replying to a fan who tweeted, “Play New Slang,” the band’s manager asked Healy “should we?”
“Yeah let’s do it and let’s do the Barfly in December,” the frontman replied. You can see those tweets below.
Rumours of a New Slang show began after a post on Instagram by Banquet Records, who organise New Slang, teasing a special show on November 29.
On their website, Banquet Records said only that “it’s probably the biggest gig of the year. We’re not sure when it’s to be announced, so watch this space.”
On November 7, Healy shared another teaser that pretty much confirms the band will play London’s Camden Assembly (formerly the Barfly).
Dates and tickets are yet to be officially announced.
Healy publicly apologised to his mum recently, Coronation Street‘s Denise Welch, for his battle with heroin addiction.
Healy previously revealed that he checked into a Barbados rehab clinic ahead of recording The 1975’s upcoming album ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships‘ – with the honest admission coming after he referenced his drug battles on comeback single ‘Give Yourself A Try’.
Speaking in an interview with Q, Healy said that heroin made him ‘a worse writer, person, friend, partner [and] son’.
“I just want to apologise to my mum,” he said. “You can’t be a parent and have that kind of thing [his drug addiction] out there and not think, “Well, why didn’t I… You think it’s your fault, d’you know what I mean? When it’s completely not.”
In 2016, Healy wrote ‘I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It’ track ‘She Lays Down’ about Welch’s battle with post-natal depression.
