Before Jakarta, the band will also be hitting Seoul, Hong Kong, Manila, Bangkok, and Singapore in the Asian leg of the tour. However, their Jakarta concert is not yet included in the band’s schedule, as seen on their official website.

Since their formation in 2002, The 1975 have released three studio albums: The 1975 (2013), I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful yet so Unaware of It (2016), A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships (2018).
