Last night, English alt-rock band, The 1975, brought their big headlining North American tour to Milwaukee, WI. Returning The Rave for another sold-out performance, this time Matthew Healey and company were joined by Colouring and Pale Waves who both delivered great opening performances which set the tone for the rest of the night.

The 1975 opened the night with their self-titled and opening track from the band’s most recent LP, I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful yet So Unaware of It, an album the band has been consistently touring in support of since its 2016 release. The ‘Somebody Else’ group continued with the album’s next tracks, ‘Love Me’ and ‘UGH!’, the first two singles from the acclaimed project. The night wasn’t all about The 1975’s sophomore album though, as the Manchester natives also performed a number of singles and fan favorites from their 2013 debut.

While the performance was memorable from start to finish, personal highlights from the night include the band’s performances of ‘Girls’ and ‘Somebody Else’. And with a sold-out crowd desperately wanting more, even after a 17-song set, Matt Healey and his band returned to the stage for an encore performance of ‘If I Believe You’, ‘The Sound’ and of course ‘Chocolate’, a track which the night wouldn’t have been complete without.

With a total of 20 songs performed for their Wisconsin fans, the night was complete, and fans left with instant memories of a performance that they will not soon forget.

Last night English alt-rock band The 1975 traveled to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to perform a sold out show at The Rave’s Eagles Ballroom. Performing for an excited crowed of a few thousand, the ‘Chocolate’ artists did not travel alone either. In support of the show, the guys were joined by The Japanese House and Grammy nominated London natives, Wolf Alice. From top to bottom, fans in Milwaukee certainly left with their money’s worth after three memorable performances in the night.

Kicking off the night was The Japanese House, and despite minor sound issues in their opening song, the group gave a unique sound and performed a few tracks from their most recent Clean EP. Unlike Wolf Alice and The 1975, The Japanese House’s set tonight was their first introduction to many in attendance, but they certainly made a great first impression to their new Wisconsin fans.

Next up was 4-piece alt-rock band, Wolf Alice. Coming up a huge nomination at the 2016 Grammy Awards, for the Best Rock Performance, Wolf Alice demonstrated to fans why their deserved such an honor. The Ellie Rowsell led group performed a number of their track, include their hit single ‘Moaning Lisa Smile’ and a few tracks from 2014 EP, Creature Songs. To any 1975 fans planning on traveling 90 miles south of Milwaukee to catch the 25th Anniversary of Lollapalooza, not only will The 1975 be performing, but Wolf Alice is currently scheduled to put on a great set as well.

After a brief intermission, as production set up the stage and house lights turned up and a buzzing noise was heard throughout the venue as anticipation continued to build up to its maximum heigh, it was time for The 1975 to take stage. Matthew Healey and company opened their set with their I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful yet So Unaware of It record ‘Love Me’. Screams could be heard throughout the night from their biggest fans as the group performed the majority of their 2016 album, mixed in with some of their earlier work. After a four-track encore, Milwaukee saw one of it’s best alternative performances of the year. If you were left wanting more, or simply missed out and couldn’t get tickets in time, The 1975 will return to the Midwest in just a couple months for a Lollapalooza performance that will surely leave people talking.
