Jack Antonoff and Zem Audu made a surprise appearance at The 1975’s recent San Francisco gig, performing an acoustic medley of Bleachers songs.

It came as somewhat of an interlude during the show – which took place at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium on Tuesday (November 29) – after The 1975 delivered a full playthrough of their latest album, ‘Being Funny In A Foreign Language’, and Matty Healy performed his polarising ‘Consumption’ pantomime.

Antonoff and Audu played two songs from the Bleachers catalogue: ‘All My Heroes’ (from their second album, 2017’s ‘Gone Now’) and ‘Rollercoaster’ (from their 2014 debut ‘Strange Desire’). The 1975 returned afterwards, performing another full set of 12 songs.

The 1975 are currently on the North American leg of a world tour, continuing tonight (December 1) in Portland with a further 10 dates on the itinerary after that. Over the first half of 2023, they’ll take ‘Being Funny In A Foreign Language’ to the UK and Ireland, then to Australia and New Zealand. See more details on the full world tour here.

Earlier this week, in Los Angeles, The 1975 welcomed out another surprise guestPhoebe Bridgers – to help them perform ‘Milk’. It came after Healy went viral for screaming at a security guard with Auto-Tune in Phoenix, and making out with fans onstage at several other shows.

‘Being Funny In A Foreign Language’ – The 1975’s fifth album – arrived back in October. In a four-star review, NME’s El Hunt said it “feels like the right next step after [The 1975 pushed their] experimental excess to its logical conclusion, and is comparatively lean with just eleven tracks to its name”.

Meanwhile, Healy revealed in a new interview that The 1975 had planned to appear on Taylor Swift‘s latest album ‘Midnights’, but said the songs they worked on together “never came out”.
