GALLERY: The 1975 Concert

By Briana Fields



In celebration of Illinois’ homecoming and the State Farm Center’s grand reopening, British indie rock band The 1975 came to campus on October 28. They performed a roughly two-hour set in front of beautiful graphics and lights and sounded great live.

An underwater graphic lent a meditative vibe to an instrumental part of the show.

This was my first concert at the State Farm Center and I was curious as to how it would go, but The 1975 filled the large space and made it feel small. I had a great time at the show and highly recommend you check out one of the many upcoming concerts on campus!
