The 1975 Were The Only Sound We Heard In Toronto

Posted on November 04, 2016

The 1975 has officially left us catching our breath. The incredibly talented rockers graced Toronto’s Air Canada Centre stage with their presence last night, reminding us all why we love them.


Opening with 10 minutes of a slowly amplifying white noise, the lights continued to dim… and in that moment, you could hear the sound of tens of thousands of hearts beating in sync. This crowd REFUSED to settle down.

The guys came out and nailed the songs we’ve been waiting to hear. From hits like “Love Me”, “A Change of heart”, “Somebody Else”, and “Chocolate”, we could barely contain our fandom.

Mid-show, the guys broke it down with instrumental hits like “Please be Naked”, “I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it”, and “Lostmyhead”, reminding us of their incredible ability to create such vast songs without vocals.

After the guys left the stage the crowd went WILD. With at least three hits still not played, there was NO WAY it was over.

Luckily, it wasn’t–the 1975 returned to the stage, and when the opening notes of “Medicine“ filled the arena, the crowd went wild. It seriously felt like a dream.

The music died, and Matty Healy began to talk… and when Matty talks, we listen!

Last night marked his grandfather Vin’s 80th birthday, so he asked his Toronto fans if they could sing Happy Birthday to celebrate. Everyone BELTED the words leaving Matty extremely appreciative; so much so that as a favour, the band played a crowd favourite “Robbers”. The perfect repayment!

Finishing the night with “The Sound”, the guys left a lasting impression on their Toronto fans with a show we would never forget.

While it was the band’s second show in one year, we’re already counting down until the next time they hit Canada!
