The 1975 Performed “Being Funny In A Foreign Language” On SNL

The 1975

The 1975 performed two tunes from their album ‘Being Funny In A Foreign Language’ on Saturday Night Live last night (March 11). The 1975 appeared in a few ads for the late-night comedy sketch program earlier this week, featuring Wednesday star Jenna Ortega. The band played ‘About You’ and ‘Oh Caroline’ from a stage made to appear like a living room last night. For their recent At Their Very Best global tour, the band adopted a similar setup.

The 1975 previously performed ‘Love Me’ and ‘The Sound’ from their second album ‘I Enjoy It When You Sleep For You Are So Gorgeous And So Unaware Of It’ on Saturday Night Live in 2016. The 1975 released a short film before the performance. In the six-minute A Theatrical Presentation Of An Intimate Moment, frontman Matty Healy interacts with fans, and an Instagram description of the film suggests that more episodes may be published in the future.

This summer, the Manchester band will perform their largest-ever gig at London’s Finsbury Park. Cigarettes After Sex, Bleachers, The Japanese House, and American Football will provide support, with “many more” to be disclosed. “The band is bringing with them an array of acts with their own unique takes on pop and rock for an unsurpassable day of live music in N4, London,” a press release stated.

The band will also perform at St. Anne’s Park in Dublin and Musgrave Park in Cork. They’ll also perform at Glasgow’s TRNSMT Festival and Manchester’s Parklife. The next concerts follow The 1975’s critically praised ‘At Their Very Best’ UK and Ireland arena tour, which concluded in January. After their stint, the band played a small show at Gorilla in Manchester as part of BRITs Week 2023.
