Matthew Healy of The 1975 performs at the Coachella Music & Arts Festival at the Empire Polo Club on Friday, April 12, 2019, in Indio, Calif.

The tour is in support of the band's upcoming album, Notes On A Conditional Form, which will be released on April 24. "Me & You Together Song" is the first single on the record.

The 2020 tour kicks off on April 27 in Houston, Texas. The band will also be performing at numerous music festivals in 2020, including Bonnaroo. 

Last April, the band was forced to cancel a show at Red Rocks due to adverse weather conditions that closed roads along Interstate 80.  

Located just west of the Mile High City, Red Rocks Park features 738 acres of hiking trails, geological wonders and astounding views.  

Owned and operated by the City of Denver, Colorado, the concert venue at Red Rocks Park has been home to some of the most iconic concerts in history, from artists such as The Beatles, U2, and Sting.
