On April 27, 2017, The 1975 played to a sold out show to 5,870 fans. The Greek Theatre is in the heart of Griffith park, a popular hiking and tourist destination in Los Angeles. As fans began to line up waiting for the gates to open, the excitement is felt throughout this one lane street. At exactly 6 pm the gates were swung open and thousands of fans filled into the amphitheater. KRQR filled the small picnic area with music, thousands of dollars of merchandise were being sold, and fans waited anxiously to get to their seats.
Once the theater was ready, seats slowly but surely began to fill up. As time passed the first band known as Colouring went on at 7:30. This unknown band had an 80s-funk vibe that pumped up the crowd. They had never played to a sold-out show before and they were very thankful towards the American fans. They exhibited a lot of potentials and could possibly be a new and hot upcoming band. The second act before the 1975 was Pale Waves. The 1975 signed them onto their record label and are conforming them to be a lot like the original band. They both have similar styles and songs that display a common belief. They played about five songs that had the fans dancing and on their feet. As they exited the stage all the fans began to wait for what they paid to see.
Finally, after hours of waiting at 9:00 the lights went down and the opening song began to play. All 5,870 fans began roaring with excitement and not one person in the theater was sitting down. The 1975 came out with their hit song “Love Me” and the crowd sang along so loud you could barely hear the lead singer, Matty Healy. The night continued and they added some of the hits from their self-titled album, songs such as “Menswear”, “The City” and “Me”. The crowd responded well to the band’s charismatic stage presents. Throughout the night even to the very last song, everyone was dancing and really finding pleasure in the band’s amazing light show and happiness. The last song, which is one of their most popular, “The Sound” began to play and the whole Amphitheatre was dancing and screaming the lyrics so loud that not one person was inattentive or spiritless.
As the concert came to an end, everyone left the theater with a concert experience they will never forget. The 1975 is a band that supports everyone in being equal. They do charity work for the LGBT community and are very accepting of everyone that goes and buys tickets to any of the shows they perform. If you are looking for a concert that is openminded, not judgmental, and aesthetically pleasing, then The 1975 is the band to go see. Over all, it was one of the best concert experiences I have had.
