The AO Arena posted a statement on its social media pages to warn fans not to arrive too early. They said this was also in relation to construction work taking place at the arena. 

The 1975 will play two shows at the AO Arena this weekend. The band will take to the stage on February 17 and 18. Previous shows at Glasgow’s OVO Hydro and multiple dates at the O2 Arena in London have seen fans post on social media about starting to queue for the gig days in advance.

A spokesperson for the AO Arena said: “Following reports of early queuing ahead of The 1975 this weekend, we would like to make it clear that the AO Arena does NOT have an official wrist banding policy for these shows. Fans should not arrive at the venue before 8am on show day due to ongoing construction work.”
