MUST. STAY. CALM. MUST. KEEP. BREATHING…Okay, it isn’t working. We don’t know about you guys but, as massive fans of The 1975, we are totally losing our shizzle right now.
The group are set to perform at MSG. Yes, you heard us, MADISON SQUARE GARDEN, for the first time, and we refuse to apologise for our emotional state.
The 1975, a band consisting of Matthew Healy, Adam Hann, George Daniel and Ross MacDonald, released their second studio album, titled ‘I Like It When You Sleep For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It’ last year and, since then, they seem to have just gone from strength to strength. The group started out only playing to small crowds, putting on really intimate, immersive shows for their fans, however, since their fanbase has grown in size in a way which could not have been anticipated, the venues they’re playing have grown in size too.

To say that we are excited about this news would be the biggest understatement of 2017 – yes we know it’s only January, but still.
The 1975 are becoming more popular as the days go by and seem to be gaining more support from people worldwide. But devout fans mustn’t worry, as these boys haven’t grown too big for their boots, oh no.
In fact, the guys shall be playing a show for 500 people in a small venue in London in February, proving how grounded they still are and that they still love doing what they started out doing.
We're gonna play a show for 500 people in a small venue in London next month

So, what are your thoughts on all of this? Are you as proud as we are of the boys for playing on a stage where legends have walked? A venue which holds over 20,000 people? Tweet us your thoughts and we can all freak out together @CelebMix.
