The The Tickets
The The TicketsThe The is an English synth-pop band founded in 1977 by singer and songwriter Matt Johnson, who remains the only constant member of the group. Its sound has been described as "post-punk" with influences ranging from The Velvet Underground to The Residents. The The made its first public appearance in May 1979 at London's Africa Centre, where it received third billing on the ticket. Since then, the group has released six studio albums, notably 1983's Soul Mining, which is best known for the UK hit "This is the Day." Other recognizable singles include "The Beat(en) Generation," "Perfect" and "Uncertain Smile."
Sounds of a Beaten GenerationIn the late 1970s, Matt Johnson was recording songs as a solo artist while trying to recruit musicians for the band he hoped to form. His list of bandmates has been something of a revolving door throughout the years, with past collaborators including Peter Ashworth, Simon Fisher Turner and Johnny Marr, formerly of the Smiths. The The signed with 4AD records in 1981, which helped to propel the band to national fame. The band's music has appeared in a number of British television shows, namely the Channel 4 Series This is England '86, which aired in 2010, and BBC sitcom Fresh Meat in 2013. Notable live performances include a June 2002 appearance at London's Meltdown Festival, where it appeared as guests of David Bowie.

What can I expect from a The The concert?Global politics and human interest topics have long been a focus for frontman Johnson, whose songs tend to ruminate on these issues along with other, more personal struggles. During his live performances, he may segue into recitation of a poem that he finds particularly relevant to current events without shying away from the political implications. Crowd reaction remains generally subdued during the heavier moments, but when Johnson's signature growl kicks into high gear, the audience usually follows suit.
What does The The's tour setlist look like?As The The hasn't released an official studio album since NakedSelf in 2000, its setlist consists mainly of crowd favorites like "The Beat(en) Generation," "Sweet Bird of Truth" and "We Can't Stop What's Coming." The band has a long history to draw from, so there's a good chance that longtime fans will be rewarded with a number of familiar tunes.
Who are the current members of The The?The The's touring roster has shifted a number of times since the band's inception, with lead vocalist Johnson remaining the only constant member (he also plays backup guitar). As of 2018, his touring mates included Barrie Cadogan on lead guitar, James Eller on bass, DC Collard on keyboards and Earl Harvin on drums.
Is there a The The tour in 2019?The The has no concert dates announced for 2019. The band went on official hiatus from 2003 to 2017, but Johnson did gather a lineup for a 2018 comeback tour, so it's reasonable to assume that it may be playing together again in the near future.
