The 1975 played their biggest headline show last night (2 July) to a sold-out crowd at London’s Finsbury Park – see our exclusive photos from the set below.

The Matty Healy-fronted indie pop band took to the stage for the all-dayer, which was delayed from the COVID-19 pandemic, following performances by Bleachers, American Football, Cigarettes After Sex, and the band’s Dirty Hit labelmates The Japanese House.

Fans were treated to a reworked version of their ‘At Their Very Best’ tour show, which opened with members of The 1975 on stage getting dressed and preparing the area for the show’s living room-inspired set design.

Amid a stream of classics, The 1975 played a substantial amount of material from their latest album, 2022’s Being Funny In A Foreign Language.

Tracks including ‘Oh Caroline’, ‘Looking for Somebody (to Love)’, and ‘I’m in Love With You’ were played, as was the album’s lead single, ‘Part of the Band’. He flexed to the camera while singing about his “cancellation” during the song, seemingly in reference to his recent controversies.

Last month, Rina Sawayama called out Healy for comments he made on a podcast earlier this year.

Sawayama, who is signed to Dirty Hit, hit out at Healy after he mocked the heritage of rapper Ice Spice.

“I wrote this next song because I was sick and tired of micro-aggressions. So, tonight, this song goes out to a white man who watches [pornography show] Ghetto Gaggers and mocks Asian people on a podcast. He also owns my masters. I’ve had enough,” Sawayama said during her Glastonbury set.

The podcast, hosted by Adam Friedland, also heard The 1975 singer explain how he watched the pornography mentioned by Sawayama. Referring to one scene, Healy explained how it “brutalised” women.

Other songs performed by The 1975 at Finsbury Park included ‘Love It if We Made It’, ‘Sex’, ‘If You’re Too Shy (Let Me Know)’ and ‘People’. See the full setlist here.

In other news, Healy recently delivered a stinging rebuke to Noel Gallagher after the latter called the former a “slack-jawed fuckwit”.
