Having sold out multiple dates of their forthcoming Australian tour, English rockers The 1975 have added a second date in Sydney! Taking place on April 16, the band will take over Sydney's Qudos Bank Arena for the finale of their At Their Very Best Australian tour.

Kicking off at Red Hill Auditorium in Perth on April 8, the tour will now continue on to Adelaide's AEC Arena, Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena for two stops, Sydney's Aware Super Theatre and Brisbane's Riverstage, before wrapping up with their newly announced Sydney show on April 16. Presale for the new date will be available from 9am local Thursday 19 January, with tickets on sale tothe general public from 9am local Friday 20 January.

Having debuted at #1 the ARIA Album Chart, Being Funny In A Foreign Language calls back to the bands earlier records and fan-favourite tracks, whilst still pushing forward. Frontman Matty Healy is as charming and beguiling as ever, luring us in with his sometimes polished, sometimes effervescent performance, and still delivering lyrics that will rip your heart, make you laugh, maybe even ignite some flames within you. But most importantly, he is still provoking the listener into thought. There is space within the album to incite inner reflection, not just to catch up on what’s been going on in the lives of your favourite synth-pop luminaries. Perfectly curated with an effortless balance, Being Funny In a Foreign Language finds The 1975 at their very best. Read our full review here.

Being Funny In A Foreign Language is out now!
