After their singer spent months occupying tabloid headlines, The 1975 have announced their biggest North America tour yet — including a Tampa concert.
The band’s “Still...at their very best” tour will stop at Amalie Arena at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 18.
The concert will mark one year since The 1975′s fifth studio album, “Being Funny in a Foreign Language,” was released. But in the past few months, the band has made headlines for another reason: singer Matty Healy’s relationship with superstar Taylor Swift.
Healy hasn’t just been in the spotlight for his love life. A number of Swift fans noted concern about Healy’s past controversial comments, from mocking rapper Ice Spice to inappropriate comments about women of color. Some outlets are speculating that Healy’s problematic behavior may be the reason for his recent breakup.
