Watch The 1975 debut ‘A Brief Inquiry…’ songs at tour opener

The 1975 by Sinéad Grainger

They also shared a staggering new stage show at the Belfast show last night (9th January).

The 1975 began their UK & Irish arena tour in support of new album ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’ in Belfast last night (9th January), and debuted a host of songs from the new album.

The show also saw the quartet present a staggering new stage show, which includes massive iPhones, lyrics emblazoned on the back of the stage, and, uh, treadmills?

The band gave live debuts to ‘A Brief Inquiry…’ cuts ‘I Always Wanna Die (Sometimes)’, ‘How To Draw/Petrichor’ and ‘I Like America & America Likes Me’ at the show.

The tour, which comes with support from Pale Waves and No Rome, continues across this month, with two London shows at The O2 set for late next week.
