The run, announced last week, will mark The 1975’s first tour of two countries in three years. They were initially slated to play one show each in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney, but have now added a second Melbourne show to their schedule after the first sold out.


They’ve also upgraded their Adelaide venue, moving from the Adelaide Entertainment Centre’s Theatre (which has a capacity of 3,000 punters) to its 11,300-capacity Arena.

Following their run of Australian dates – which kick off in Perth on April 8 and wrap up in Sydney on April 14 – the band will then head to New Zealand, where they’ll perform in Wellington and Auckland.

Since The 1975 last toured Australia and New Zealand (in 2020, as part of Laneway Festival) the band have released fourth studio album ‘Notes On a Conditional Form’ and are currently readying their fifth, ‘Being Funny In a Foreign Language’.

The album, which is set to arrive next Friday (October 14), has been previewed with four singles thus far: ‘Part of the Band’ in July, ‘Happiness’ in August, and last month’s ‘I’m in Love With You’ and ‘All I Need to Hear’.
