The 1975 were joined by Jack Atonoff on stage last night (November 29th), as the Bleachers frontman performed an acoustic medley of his own material.
This most recent performance was held at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium – accompanied by a saxophonist, Antonoff strolled on stage, grabbed an acoustic guitar, and played a mash-up of 2017’s ‘All My Heroes’ and 2015’s ‘Rollercoaster’.
As well as serving as lead singer for the New Jersey rock band, the musician is also an established producer, boasting long-standing collaborative relationships with the likes of Lorde, Lana Del Rey, and Taylor Swift.
While Matty Healy retained creative control of recording, Antonoff was involved with the recording and production of The 1975’s fifth chart-topping album, ‘Being Funny In A Foreign Language’, which Dork’s 5-star review hailed as, “a brilliant edit of everything that came before, cast in the self-realisation and not-so-quiet confidence of just how good they can be”.

The 1975 will tour North America for the remainder of 2022, returning to the UK for their hometown headline shows in January 2023 with recently-announced support act Bonnie Kemplay – tickets are available here. They have also been confirmed as headliners for Glasgow’s TRNSMT Festival next July.
