The 1975 and Florence & The Machine among the acts coming to Manchester venues in February - including AO Arena, Academy and Albert Hall

This month will see a number of huge acts take to stages across the city to share their music with Manchester audiences. From The 1975 (yes, again!) to Florence and The Machine, You Me at Six and Chris Brown, there's a bit of something for everyone to enjoy this February.

Fresh off the back of their At Their Very Best tour, Matty Healy and the band are set to return to Manchester for a much more intimate show than their January AO Arena performance. The band are heading to Gorilla on Wednesday, February 1, as part of their popular UK and Ireland tour dates.

Sharing the news on Instagram, Matty Healy - who formed the band in Manchester 2002 - said: "Hello everybody, we are playing a show in Manchester on the 1st of February at Gorilla. And all the money will be going to War child so try and get tickets for that one."

Tickets for the show cost £57, and have naturally sold out. But you can join the waiting list for any last minute ticket sales here.

As well as The 1975, TikTok sensation Casey Lowry will perform at the Whitworth Street venue, followed by We Are Scientists later in the month.

After breaking her foot back in November, Florence and The Machine’s rescheduled show is coming to the AO Arena on February 3. We’ll also see Black Stone Cherry & The Darkness, Yungblood and Chris Brown heading to the Arena throughout the month too.
