The 1975 add extra Sydney show to 2023 Australian tour

The 1975 - part of the band

In partnership with Secret Sounds

The 1975 have added a second show in Sydney following high demand for the Australian and New Zealand leg of the ‘At Their Very Best’ tour.

The run will mark The 1975’s first tour of two countries in three years. In addition to a sold-out show at Sydney’s Aware Super Theatre on April 14, they’ll now play an additional show at the venue on April 16.

Tickets for the second show will go on sale this Friday (January 20) from 9am AEDT, with a Secret Sounds pre-sale commencing a day earlier at the same time.

The 1975’s Australian tour will kick off April 8 at Perth’s Red Hill Auditorium, before a show at Adelaide’s AEC Arena on April 10 and consecutive dates at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne on April 11 and 12.

Sandwiched in between the Sydney dates, The 1975 will play a show at Riverstage in Brisbane on April 15. The band will then head to New Zealand, where they’ll perform in Wellington and Auckland. See the updated dates and venues below, and find tickets to the remaining shows here.

Since The 1975 last toured Australia and New Zealand (in 2020, as part of Laneway Festival) the band have released their fourth and fifth studio albums – 2020’s ‘Notes on a Conditional Form’ and last year’s ‘Being Funny in a Foreign Language’. In a four-star review of the latter, NME said the album “feels like the right next step after pushing experimental excess to its logical conclusion”.

The 1975: At Their Very Best – the lofty, and slightly tongue-in-cheek title they’ve given to their upcoming tour – might be infuriatingly, brilliantly cocky, but let’s face facts: it’s also pretty accurate.”

Saturday 8 – Perth, Red Hill Auditorium
Monday 10 – Adelaide, AEC Arena
Tuesday 11 – Melbourne, Rod Laver Arena
