The 1975 Plays Sold-Out Show In Nashville

Friday, May 17, 2019 - by Carmen O'Hagan

English pop-rock band, The 1975 played a sold-out show at Ascend Amphitheater in Nashville on Wednesday night.

Touring in support of their latest album, A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships, the group (comprised of Matty Healy, lead singer, Adam Hann, guitar, Ross MacDonald, bass, and George Daniel, drums) opened with "Give Yourself a Try" from last year's release. 

Though the rest of the band were calm and stayed in their respective spots onstage, Healy was energetic and all over the place.
The stage featured a moving walkway along the front which he was often walking or dancing on, which moved him back and forth across the front. 

Armed with a seemingly bottomless glass of wine and cigarettes, Healy played the part of rockstar well, even doing a monologue about the expectations of filling that role before performing their hit "Love Me."

At one point he argued with the stage crew saying he wanted to play both songs, and indeed added the extra track "Medicine" to the setlist for Nashville's show, treating diehard fans to a deep cut. After the song ended he pointed out that a couple in the front pit section just got engaged and Healy himself became visibly emotional over the news.

The North American portion of the tour continues into June, with a local stop in Atlanta on Saturday, May 18. 

Setlist:
Give Yourself A Try
TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME
