Last year The 1975 exploded onto the music scene with a popalicious, synth-infused, indie sounding debut album that quickly bagged the band the No.1 slot. That success has seen the band speedily graduate from performing in 50-capacity clubs and pubs to sold-out gigs at Brixton academy. Unsurprisingly, the backstage team behind the Manchester-born group have had to adapt quickly. TPi catches up with them during their Royal Albert Hall debut . . .
Nominated for Tour Manager of the Year 2013 in the Live UK Music Business Awards, Production Manager Ant Forbes has been with The 1975 since the band first took to the open road. In fact, when The 1975 began touring Forbes was exactly one half of the original backstage touring operation, alongside Darren Purves, the bands Lighting Designer.
