The 1975 have added another show to their already sold out Australian tour this April.

The new Sydney show will take place on Sunday, 16th April at the Qudos Bank Arena, just two days after the band’s first Sydney show at the Aware Super Theatre on the 14th.

The band are set to arrive in Australia off the back of their current UK tour in support of their latest album ‘Being Funny In A Foreign Language’, which dropped in October last year. Last week, Taylor Swift jumped on stage at their first of two London O2 dates to play a couple of songs before The 1975 returned for the second half of the show – she strummed through ‘Anti-Hero’ from her new album ‘Midnights’, and also covered The 1975’s ‘The City’.

The upcoming Australian tour will be the band’s first in the country since early 2020, when they headlined Laneway Festival. Pre-sale tickets for the tour will be available from 9am Thursday, 19th January via Secret Sounds, and general tickets go on sale 9am Friday, 20th January.

The band’s Australian tour will kick off at the Red Hill Auditorium in Perth on Saturday 8th April, followed by shows in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane before the newly added Sydney show.
