I really don’t know how the 1975 could tour or promote harder than they did for the last double album. They were everywhere. They did well headlining R&L but I feel like the attention they got off the back of that performance has fizzled a bit. The pandemic probably paid a big role in that is just how the cookie crumbles.

If the pandemic didn’t happen and their momentum didn’t slow I would consider them worth a shot but things have moved on. Things don’t always standstill unfortunately.

Yeah, the mixed reception to Notes and the pandemic stopped their seemingly unstoppable momentum. As I said though, a few good singles and they can be right on track again

FATM are the speedboat. It's a prize, a nice prize and some people would really enjoy it and get a lot of use out of it. Me? I live on the 13th floor of a tower block. In Solihull. And I wish I just kept my Bendy Bullys.

The problem is though (probably not really their fault) but they tried to become the next staple headlining band at a time where the industry is somewhat stacked against them. I’m reading similar discussions on the gov ball reddit, as people are questioning why the festival has just completely ditched bands.

In the 00s / 10s festivals were in the business of giving bands with momentum and good popularity headline gigs. The 1975 would have been a natural band to get this.

But trends have changed. Being a band with a good following that tours the circuit every year isn’t what gets you a headline. Festivals have embraced solo artists / more pop / dance and rap/r&b and appear more open to giving a rising rap artist a chance to headline than a band.

It’s a mix of pandemic induced stagnation and just general market trends which have resulted in the 1975 not getting as many headlining gigs as they looked to be set for a few years ago.

Eh, I really do believe that they were probably lined up for 2021, possibly rushing out a new album in the meantime after Notes landed with a thud, and that they would’ve been able to cling on to their festival headliner status a little longer. The pandemic well and truly fucked them in that respect and basically caught them off guard immediately after releasing a clunker.

Although they were absolutely everywhere for a good few years there, it now seems kind of crazy to think of them as ever being that big. Fuck knows where they’re gonna land upon their return, but headlining Glastonbury it ain’t gonna be. Maybe they’d be happy enough pulling a Foals/Biffy and taking the sub slot.

I think they are more likely to headline reading again and we will have years and years of debating them over and over on here.

If they can release another fairly popular album/with a big enough single then they'd be seen as a really big sub, if they skip that and headline Reading then yeah it'll be in a weird space for a long time.

Been saying it for a while, but they'll make a mighty Other headliner in 2023-4. The Tame arc, if you will.

Neil is saying Kendrick, Joey is saying Kendrick (albeit from a source within GF)

is it just bcos he isn’t playing anywhere else people are questioning (aka classic efests speculation) or have I missed something else? 

It’s just the lack of any other dates.

Think people underestimate the significance of GF tbh. Especially if that’s info from 2 sources. 
 

Not doing the Friday means nothing imo either. 
 

Can’t remember the last time headliner info was wrong? Adele was correct despite 90% of us talking ourselves into it being Radiohead!
