Mancunian pop-rock superstars The 1975 are set to play at the Coca-Cola Arena this summer as the arena’s opening season gets even better.

Joining the likes of Maroon 5, Westlife and comedian Russell Peters, The 1975 are going to be bringing their relentlessly feel-good synthy, poppy, rocky tunes to Dubai on Wednesday August 14.

Thankfully, the arena is fully air-conditioned – in fact, it’s the only purpose-built, indoor, large-scale venue in the region.

But, back to The 1975, and why you need to be getting excited about their gig.

Having ignited break-up rumours after mysteriously deleting their entire social media presence in 2015, following the global success of debut album The 1975, the band whipped up a storm with second album I Like it When You Sleep, For You Are so Beautiful Yet so Unaware of It (what a mouthful, eh…).

With massive tunes like The Sound, Chocolate, Somebody Else and It’s Not Living (If It’s Not With You), the pop rockers have absolutely hit their stride again with third album A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships, released in 2018. Now in the midst of a global tour supporting the new record, The 1975 were one of the first acts worldwide to live-stream their entire Coachella 2019 headline set on YouTube – and they’re known for putting on a massive show, which fans will expect when they headline Reading & Leeds Festival in the UK soon after they visit Dubai in August.

Oh, and they're preparing for a new album release in 2019, less than a year after the release of A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships.

To get you in the mood, here’s a clip of Chocolate live from London’s The O2 in 2016 (which, incidentally, is run by the same team who manage the Coca-Cola Arena, so we’re hoping for something similar).
