Matty Healy, Ros MacDonald, George Daniel and Adam Hann were set to play the London park on Saturday 11 July 2020 for the most sustainably responsible live show ever to take place there.

Now the band have confirmed the new date for the gig in the north London Park will take place on 10 July 2021.

Last weekend, organisers wrote in an official statement: "The 1975 in Finsbury Park will no longer be taking place this year. We've been closely monitoring this unprecedented situation and it has become clear that cancelling the show was unavoidable".

They added: "We are working hard with The 1975 to try to get a new show locked in for 2921 - watch this space.

"We are working closely with our ticketing partners and they will be in touch very soon to process your refund".
