It’s finally happening. Following the announcement of the UK leg of their ‘Still… At Their Very Best’ tour last summer, the 1975 are about to set off around Britain’s biggest arenas. This week it’s Glasgow’s turn – and we aren’t the only ones excited about it. Some megafans are already camped outside the 14,000-plus capacity venue

The 1975’s Glasgow shows mark their first concerts of 2024 and the opening of the European leg of their ‘Still... At Their Very Best’ tour. Judging from shows across the US and Canada last year, we’re expecting a spectacular show, with Matty Healy and co combining huge hits and eye-catching stage designs.

Excited for The 1975 at the Hydro? From doors and start times to the potential setlist, here’s everything you need to know about the shows.

When is The 1975 at Glasgow’s O2 Arena? 

The band are in town for two shows on Thursday February 8 and Friday February 9.

What time do doors open?

For both shows, doors open at 6:30pm. 

What’s going on with people queuing outside? 

In an attempt to get as close to the front of the crowd as possible, dozens of especially devoted 1975 fans have been camping outside the Hydro since earlier this week. Up to 70 fans camped out, some coming from as far as Australia. Now that is dedication. 

What time will the band come on stage?

The band hasn’t confirmed when they’ll come on stage. Judging from past shows and the OVO Hydro’s curfew, however, expect them to start at around 8:30pm. Get in early to avoid disappointment!

Who is supporting The 1975? 

Support will come from English indie pop act The Japanese House.
