The 1975 Berlin Concert Review


The British band based in Manchester, The 1975, brought their tour to Berlin’s Columbiahalle on 8th April 2016. They pleased the fans with their hits from both their debut album and the new one which was released at the end of February 2016 – i like it when you sleep for, you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it. 

However, this concert was a bit more special to most of the fans, since Matty Healy, the lead singer and guitarist of the band, turned 27 on the day of the concert.

Even thought the crowd was a bit chaotic when everyone got inside, everything calmed down a bit when The 1975‘s support act, The Japanese House got on stage. They performed for 30 minutes and the audience really enjoyed it.

When The 1975 (Matthew Healy, George Daniel, Adam Hann, Ross MacDonald) got on stage, the crowd went literally crazy. The guys opened with the first single from their new album, ‘Love Me’.

Before the band started playing the third song of the setlist – one of their older hits called ‘Heart Out’ – the fans started singing “Happy Birthday” to Matty and the singer looked delighted.

It felt magical when Matthew asked the crowd to put down their phones and stop singing and clapping before the song ‘Me’ from the deluxe version of their debut album. He explained that he wanted everyone not to think about anything – not the past, not the future and not the presence. He wanted everyone to enjoy the moment.

One of the further things we have to mention is the incredible lighting of the stage. During the entire night, the stage has glowed in pink, black, blue, green and purple and let us say, it was just too beautiful.

The fans proved that they love both the new album and the old album, according how everyone was singing along almost every song and enjoying the show.

There was one more thing that Matty wanted for his birthday. Before their most recent single ‘The Sound’ started playing, he told the crowd that he wishes everyone to jump along with the song – and everybody did just that.

The last song was one of their most famous singles ‘Sex’ and then it was over. It felt unbelievable how fast the time flew by.

However, we’re sure as hell we’re gonna attend the most The 1975 shows that’s possible in the future!
