Much has been made of The 1975’s stage show on their current tour. A plethora of intense visuals, accompanied with their monolithic rectangle, the band manage to unite a packed out O2 Arena, with the likes of ‘The Sound’ and ‘Sex’ ensuring pandemonium across the venue. Opening with ‘Give Yourself A Try’, its unfortunate the bass is lacking slightly at first, however once ‘TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME’ kicks in, this has been forgotten for swathes of bright production. It’s clear what this all means to Matt Healy too. Emphatically singing every note and continuously reaching out to the crowd, he’s eternally grateful for them. ‘Love Me’ and ‘Sincerity Is Scary’ are clear examples, with the production divided between minimal and extraordinary - however, post-‘It’s Not Living (If It’s Not With You) the set hits a slump when ‘tracks from ‘i like it when you sleep’ enter the fray. The album is the middle child of The 1975’s discography, with melodies that fail to glow on record and the live stage, so when ‘How To Draw / Petrichor’ commences it’s a particularly welcome return. A euphoric ‘I Always Wanna Die (Sometimes)’ concludes the main set, before Healy shudders and roars through the defining anthem ‘Love It If We Made It’ as the vast expanse around him flickers and flashes with strobes and thousands of phone torches.

"Capisci i sentimenti quando te li fanno a pezzi
È bello rimettere insieme i pezzi...vedere che alla fine stanno in piedi anche da soli
È bello stare insieme, saper stare da soli.."
