Caroline Polachek Finally Joined The 1975 On Stage In Ireland And They Appropriately Played ‘Oh Caroline’

On Wednesday, June 7, Matty Healy delivered an impromptu opening solo set for The 1975’s show at St. Anne’s Park in Dublin. He did so because Caroline Polachek was “not in good enough health” to open as originally scheduled.

But The 1975 didn’t leave Ireland before sharing the stage with Polachek, who joined the band during their outdoor show at Musgrave Park in Cork on Tuesday, June 13. Of course, they played “Oh Caroline” from The 1975’s October 2022 album, Being Funny In A Foreign Language.

Polachek posted an Instagram video of the performance, and fan videos were also circulating on Twitter.

Polachek looked right at home on stage with The 1975. They share a history. For instance, The 1975’s George Daniel and Charli XCX remixed “Welcome To My Island” earlier this year from Polachek’s latest album, Desire, I Want To Turn Into You. (They also share an affinity for long album titles.)

On June 13, The 1975 announced another North American tour leg in support of Being Funny In A Foreign Language. Their Still At Their Very Best Tour is scheduled to begin on September 26 at Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California. It will include 30 more dates before concluding on December 2 at Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle, Washington. Notably, the band will play New York City’s famed Madison Square Garden on November 14.

The Still At Their Very Best pre-sale is slated for Wednesday, June 21, beginning at 10 a.m. local time. The general public sale will take place on Friday, June 23, at 10 a.m. local time.
