The Manchester, England, rock band The 1975 returns to Pittsburgh's Stage AE on May 11 after selling out back to back dates on Halloween and Nov. 1 at the same venue.

The band continues to tour on its second full-length album, “I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It.” The February 2016 release was certified gold in the United Kingdom and United States and features seven singles. The four-piece group reaped success from its 2013 debut self-titled LP as well, which went platinum in the United Kingdom and gold in the United States.

The band won best live band at the 2017 NME Awards, the annual awards show of the music magazine. The 1975 also won the British group award at the 2017 Brit Awards.

While 2017 is still young, the band already has announced plans for next year. In 2018, The 1975 will release its third full-length album, to be called “Music for Cars,” which references its 2013 EP of the same name.

The 1975 performs at 7 p.m. May 11, with opening acts Pale Waves and Colouring, at Stage AE on Pittsburgh's North Shore. Tickets are $40.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
