The 1975 fan travels from Australia to camp days before Hydro concerts

The 1975 are to play two highly-anticipated shows in Glasgow this week at the OVO Hydro.

One fan of The 1975 has travelled from Australia to Glasgow to camp outside the OVO Hydro ahead of the band’s shows.

The band are to play back-to-back nights in Glasgow this week as part of their Still At Their Very Best tour.

Fans of the group have been camping outside the Hydro since Tuesday morning in anticipation of the shows on Thursday and Friday.

Hannah, who is planning to attend ten shows on the band’s tour, made the journey from down under to Glasgow.

The super fan had never visited the UK before but said the journey would be worth it come Thursday night.

She told STV News: “It took me 28 hours (to travel) from Sydney, Australia.

“The journey was very tiring but its definitely going to be worth it.

“I’ve previously gone to Italy to follow Måneskin around – and also Harry Styles – but I’ve never camped before for shows.

“Everyone in the fandom knows about the camping thing.

“I’ve never even been to the UK before…I probably am a little crazy!

“They are so real (The 1975) and that is what a lot of us connect with them around. We can relate to them and their music.”

Wristbands are expected to be given out to fans who have queued early on the day of the show.

The OVO Hydro website states camping and queuing overnight is not permitted.

Tickets remain available but in low numbers for both nights at the venue.
