I never really thought of myself as a spontaneous person. I was never one to just buy a plane ticket or a concert ticket and go somewhere or to something unless I had concrete plans. Then I went to Europe and got a taste of the sweet independence that comes with traveling. I’ll put that series up in August or something, but for now let’s talk about New York City.
As you may know, I went to Pittsburgh to see the 1975. Before I purchased my ticket for that concert, I went a bit mad and purchased a ticket for another one of their shows, which just happened to be their show at Madison Square Garden (MSG) in New York City. I had just gotten into the 1975 in November/December of 2016 and listened to them quite a bit with my friends Marcus and Arianna when we went to Europe in December. In January, the band announced a show at MSG (before announcing their actual North American tour) and I was so drunk on the sweet sounds of “I Like It When You Sleep…” and their self-titled debut album, that I got tickets. One for me, one for Marcus, and one for Arianna. They were shocked that I had actually done it (waiting for presale tickets was stressful as hell), but I did and we were going.
Fast forward to May 31st and I was on a plane with Arianna ready to take on the city and see the 1975 perform their first show at MSG. A sold out show, mind you. It was beautiful and emotional. I felt so proud of them honestly. After 13 years of shows, tours, interviews, promotions, writing, recording, and being the 1975, they sold out MSG on their first try. It was really inspiring to hear Matty Healy talk about it during the show and emotional af to hear them play my favorite song by them, FallingForYou.
It’s an end of an era for them, but it was a damn good era and they did the damn thing. God bless the 1975 and I cannot wait to see what’s next for them. It was definitely worth the trip to NYC (one of my favorite cities) and I had a glorious time.
I vlogged the entire trip so here’s that:
