Wednesday night UK’s biggest indie-rockband played a show in Stockholm, Sweden.
The band, from Manchester UK, played for a sold out crowed Wednesday’s night in Stockholm. About 3000-3500 people heard their second album ”I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it” live for the first time.
The 1975 released their second studio album on February 26th and are now out on their European leg of their tour. They rose to fame with their self-titled debut album, 2013, and has been touring all over the world ever since. Both the debut and second album has reached #1 on charts in Australia, Canada, USA and England.
Outside the arena a few fans spent the night to make sure they ended up in the front of the show. Two girls that had been waiting the longest are 16 and 17 year old Alva Sköldfors and Josefin Enstedt.
- “By queueing you make the whole concert experince a lot more fun. You make new friends and during the show you end up in the front, which makes it all so much better,” they said.
The line reached from the entrance to a few blocks away. The fans waiting were well prepared for the Swedish April weather and brought champing chairs, blankets, sleeping bags and umbrellas.
- “It’s important to dress warm and wear layers of clothes and at least three pair of socks. My mother thinks I’m crazy for being here.” said Josefin Enstedt.

During the concert the band played a good variation of up-tempo and slow songs. The song ”Girls” from the debut album got the biggest reaction from the crowed. Their light show was colorful and each song had a different look.
Check out Girls on youtube. Certainly a favourite!
