Culture Round-Up: Tickets on sale for The 1975 concert in Denmark next year
In May, The 1975 released their fourth full-length album, Notes on a Conditional Form, with which the band will be touring next year. The Manchester quartet will perform in TAP1 in Copenhagen on February 12, 2021 and tickets are already on sale.
The critically acclaimed album consists of as many as 22 songs that not only go deeper into defining the band’s unique sound but also do not hesitate to experiment.
For instance, the self-titled opening track is a piano-accompanied recording of Greta Thunberg’s monologue. It is not surprising that the Danish music magazine Gaffa stated that Notes on a Conditional Form is “the epitome of music in 2020”.
The 1975 have won the Brit Awards for the Best British Group twice – in 2019 and 2017.
In 2019, they also took home an award for the Best Album of the Year for their third recording, A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships.
The British music magazine NME named them the “Band Of The Decade” at the NME Awards 2020.
