The 1975 at 3Arena, Dublin: Everything you need to know

Set list, stage times, ticket information and more for the uber-smart pop-rockers’ Irish night

Three albums in just over four years is as good a track record as any arena-filling pop/rock band can have these days. Despite the lengthy titles – 2016’s I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It, 2018’s A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships, and the less verbose forthcoming Notes on a Conditional Form – the band pack neat’n’nifty pop tunes into them.

According to advance reports, however, and in accordance with the group’s preference for lengthy track listings, the new album will feature more than 20 songs – as well as a music style closer to The Streets and Burial than their heretofore uber-smart pop/rock.

How many new tunes frontman Matt Healy and the band will play remains to be seen, but we can't imagine the partisan audience will be bothered one way or the other. – Tony Clayton-Lea
