The 1975 Are Still at Their Very Best for New North American Tour Dates

By Brittany Spanos

Brittany Spanos

The 1975 are returning to the States this fall for a second run of North American tour dates. The UK band’s Still…At Their Very Best trek will kick off in California this September. 

The 1975’s latest run supports their 2022 album Being Funny in a Foreign Language, released in October. The group played a run of arena shows in North America last fall and have been performing worldwide all year. They are currently headlining festivals across the UK and Europe this summer. 

The band released a new episode of their web series, A Theatrical Performance of an Intimate Moment, to announce the tour. The eight-minute video sees singer Matty Healy going through a morning routine before heading to work at a lab and experimenting on a patch of greenery.

In other The 1975 news, Healy recently responded to Noel Gallagher’s comments about him at a 1975 show in Dublin last week (June 7).

“Noel Gallagher called me a ‘slack-jawed fuckwit’… I love Noel Gallagher. We asked Liam to open up and he said he would have done it but he was busy,” he told the crowd.

“But I love Noel Gallagher… He’s just getting on,” he added. “The difference between me and Noel is that I do a series of interviews to promote an album, whereas he does an album to promote a series of interviews. But we love you Noel. Get Oasis back together!”

At the show, Healy also acted as the support slot for his own band, after  Caroline Polachek pulled out at the last minute due to losing her voice .

In his stripped-back solo set, he performed covers of ‘I Just Don’t Think I’ll Ever Get Over You’ by Colin Hay, and Donny Hathaway’s ‘A Song For You’, which was performed alongside touring guitarist Jamie Squire. He also  performed the live debut of their song ‘Then Because She Goes’ .

The 1975 announce 39-date North American tour

The massive still...at their very best tour features shows across the u.s. and canada, beginning in september of this year..

1 the 1975 tour

The 1975 have announced a behemoth run of shows in the U.S. and Canada slated for this fall. The band's Still...at their very best tour kicks off on September 26 at Sacramento's Golden 1 Center, and will wrap up almost three whole months later at Seattle's Climate Pledge Arena. In celebration, they've also released Episode 4 of their absurdist video series "A Theatrical Performance Of An Intimate Moment."

Still...at their very best is a continuation of the 1975's ongoing At Their Very Best tour, which has been marked by near-constant online discourse, mostly thanks to the antics of frontman Matty Healy. These include eating raw meat on stage, making out with fans, cameramen, and security guards, and — oh, yeah — dating Taylor Swift . These new shows promise an expanded production, but what that means is still anyone's guess.

The 1975 Announce 'Still... At Their Very Best' Tour Dates – Setlist & Ticket Info

T he 1975 began their Still… At Their Very Best Tour in September and it seems that fans have been enjoying every minute of their shows.

Fans have been treated to exciting performances of their hit songs like “The 1975,” “Be My Mistake” and “Looking For Somebody To Love.” They weren’t the only ones onstage, though, as they also have up-and-coming singer Dora Jar join them as their opener for many of their shows.

At their Madison Square Garden stop, frontman Matty Healy welcomed his father, Tim , up on the stage, where he sang the band’s song “All I Need To Hear.”

The tour follows the 1975’s previous tour, At Their Very Best, which began in November 2022 and ended in August this year. Still…At Their Very Best is set to end in March 2024, making it almost two years of back-to-back concerts.

It comes as no surprise that Healy has suggested a break after their tour ends next year.

“After this tour, we will be going on an indefinite hiatus with shows,” Healy said during an Instagram Live.

The 1975’s Matty Healy Lifts the Curtain on Band’s Biggest Tour Yet (EXCLUSIVE)

The 1975

“I don’t feel like we’re big enough to play these rooms, and yet we are,” Matty Healy says sometime between selling out New York City’s Madison Square Garden and Los Angeles’ Kia Forum. The idiosyncratic 1975 frontman is pensive, lying on a hotel bed somewhere in Tennessee — or was it Texas? — speaking with Variety over Zoom.

“The album felt like you were watching something, like you were a witness to something,” says Healy, who wrote the show and serves as its creative director. “And that was the idea with the show as well. We wanted it to be as experiential as the album was.”

When prodded about the meaning of the uncooked T-bone, he pauses and answers the question with a question: “Did you see all the conversation asking if it was real meat or not? I can’t imagine how difficult it would be to fabricate meat. I’d probably be more worried about eating some weird prop.”

Healy, you quickly get the sense, is less interested in breaking down the specifics of this performance than the idea of performance itself.

For as confident as he is onstage — introducing the 1975 as “the greatest band on the planet” or proclaiming, “We just keep getting better!” during the second act — Healy isn’t shy about his insecurities.

“Some nights I feel really exposed,” he says of the tour. “In New York, I didn’t feel that exposed, so I was happy to do almost six minutes onstage by myself. But when I played the other night, I was like, ‘I don’t feel comfortable enough in my own skin.’ But then I told people that. So it’s become this meta narrative about what’s happening with me.”

The “At Their Very Best” tour has evolved throughout its North American run, from altered setlists to surprise guest cameos from Phoebe Bridgers and Bleachers. Last week, the band began decorating the house with twinkle lights and a Christmas tree. In Las Vegas, Healy brought a fan onstage and proceeded to ( consensually ) make out with her during “Robbers.” The next night in San Diego, he snogged a male fan . Midway through the tour, the 1975 was regularly trending on Twitter and sparking headlines like “Creepy behavior or pop performance?” In L.A., where dozens of fans brought signs that read, “Kiss Me, Matty” and “Spit in My Mouth,” Healy opted to lock lips with bassist Ross MacDonald instead.

Speaking with Healy before he went on a romantic rampage – and he declined to comment afterward – one quote that sticks out in hindsight is, “I’m always just trying to do what the 1975 is, which is at least interesting.”

That spirit is also reflected in the structure of the show, which opens with seven consecutive songs from “Being Funny,” an album that came out just weeks before the tour began. Devoting the first hour-hour of an arena show to new material is a bold choice, and one that Healy didn’t necessarily process until he first took the stage.

“The first night, in Connecticut, I was met with the reality of what 8,000 people looked like,” he says. “And that’s a bit like, ‘Oh, shit. I’ve totally just been thinking about our fans and the people I see on the internet.’ I’m not thinking about Gary who’s only heard whatever song.”

He continues, “I was like, ‘Is this way too off the deep end?’ But I was also like, ‘Fuck it. This is my show. People come to see the show.’ They’ve not necessarily come to see fucking ‘Chocolate.’ So I think everyone is left, if not happy, then pretty interested.”

When they burst onto the scene with their 2013 self-titled debut album, the 1975 had a monochromatic visual identity. The black background and neon white rectangle became the band’s iconic symbol, and their live show was centered around it, with volumetric video projection used as its main light source.

The band’s 2014 staging, with a stark background of five neon-lit rectangles, “was one of the first shows that people talked about as being Instagram-ready,” says Rylander, who has worked with the 1975 for nearly a decade. “We put a lot of time and effort into making sure that anyone could take a photo of that show from anywhere in the audience and it would be a great shot.” The following tour, the band catered to social media even more with a portrait-scale show: “The set had more or less the form and shape of an iPhone when you think of it.”

But this time around, the 1975 opted for the opposite extreme, trading a bright, digitally lit stage for a more organic, living and breathing set. The band ditched the Tumblr-era black and white for warm, homey tones.

Yet according to Healy, the idea of performing out of a literal home “didn’t seem like that obvious of a conclusion until I got there.”

“When Matthew was making the album, he was talking about how he wanted the listener to feel as if they were witnessing something,” says the 1975’s manager Jamie Oborne, who also founded and owns Dirty Hit Records. “He wanted an experience of intimacy in the record, so naturally when we started thinking about the show, he wanted the same type of thing.”

There’s still, of course, plenty of photo-worthy moments, like when Healy delivers an impassioned “I Like America & America Likes Me” from the roof of the house, or falls to his knees under the giant street lamp during “Fallingforyou.”

The goal, Rylander says, is to create such a strong visual identity for not only each tour but also each song, so that fans can see a photograph from the show and be able to discern exactly when it was snapped.

The “At Their Very Best” tour is also filled with Easter eggs for eagle-eyed fans to discover. The house and street lamp are inspired by the artwork for fan-favorite single “Fallingforyou,” and every song on the setlist gets a dedicated lyric book on the house’s bookshelf. There’s also props from 1975 music videos — like Healy’s beanie from “Sincerity Is Scary” — as well as relics from Healy’s favorite movies — like the “E.T.” souvenir cup and Ohio blue tip matches from the Adam Driver film “Paterson.” In case it wasn’t cozy enough, the walls are decorated with framed family photos.

There’s also, of course, a bunch of clues that even Reddit hasn’t spotted yet, says Rylander, who won’t even tell me the still-hidden references for fear of spoiling the mystery.

Boringly enough, Rylander says the biggest challenge to producing a show of this stature is the economics of the post-pandemic touring industry. “Everything is twice if not three times as expensive as they were when we started,” he says. “There is not a lot of gear out there. We’re much more restricted to trucking space and logistics. So we’ve really gone from maximalism to minimalism.”

Oborne avoids divulging specific numbers, but assures that this tour is “costly.” The house, which is fully furnished and functional with various rooms, is big enough to fill an arena stage and comfortably fit eight band members — drummer George Daniel, guitarist Adam Hann, bassist MacDonald, plus touring musicians Jamie Squire, John Waugh, Polly Money and Rebekah Rayner. The set also has to be collapsed and rebuilt each show, travelling from city to city with 65 staffers in nine trucks. Rylander says the band aimed to create the smallest amount of landfill as possible for this tour, pointing out that the skeleton of the house is modular and the pieces can be “put back on the shelf” after the tour wraps up.

“It sounds very basic, but to have a structure that you can take apart and reuse in another show is really groundbreaking,” says Oborne, comparing the house to a Meccano set. “It eliminates a lot of waste.”

He adds, “In late-2018 and 2019, there was a huge groundswell of climate activism, and we realized that we had to do things a little bit differently in the live arena because it was such a wasteful environment.” 

During the tour for their third album, “A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships,” Oborne says he and Healy became “quite impacted by the amount of stuff we were taking around the world.” (As fans might recall, the band’s next album would open with a spoken-word track by climate activist Greta Thunberg.) So they sought out to make a show that was “more fit for the future.”

While the show itself is not inherently political, a high point of the set is the 2018 anthem “Love It If We Made It,” which has lyrics referencing police brutality, the Syrian refugee crisis and Donald Trump. Elsewhere in the show, the onscreen televisions flash between footage of Ben Shapiro, Kamala Harris, Vladimir Putin, Mark Zuckerberg and more. It’s meant to mimic a social media algorithm.

The show’s depiction of cultural overconsumption is, in part, inspired by Bo Burnham, whose song “That Funny Feeling” played prominently before the band walked onstage at MSG. Of his creative parallels with the comedian, Healy says, “We were kind of singing from the same hymn sheet already. We talk a lot about these ideas and about this kind of stuff. Having Bo in my ear has definitely affected the show.”

Adds Rylander: “Matthew is a brilliant entertainer, and he’s very welcoming into his house. But I don’t think that you could put him on a stage without him actually taking the opportunity to comment on the world that’s going on outside of the venue walls. It’s not all escapism, even if it seems that way.”

Wrapping up the North American leg this week in Pittsburgh, Penn., the 1975 are gearing up to bring the house home, in the U.K. and Ireland, starting Jan. 8 in Brighton. Looking ahead, Oborne says they’re eyeing festivals in the spring and summer.

“We’ve designed a completely different festival show,” he reveals. “It has a different setlist, but it still has echoes of the main show.”

Regarding the reaction to the tour, Healy says he doesn’t seek out comments but has read reviews and been sent various responses. What has surprised him most is that the parts of the show he thinks are “off the fucking deep end” have seemed to be resonating the most with fans.

“Sometimes I’ll write a lyric and I’ll be like, ‘No one’s gonna fucking get this because this is so me.’ And that’ll be the first fucking tattoo that somebody gets,” Healy says. “The more ‘out there’ I think I’m being, the more relatable I tend to be. People are leaving this show feeling a real solidarity with each other.”

But above all the metaphor and “black pill performance art,” as he called it in New York, Healy recognizes that people go to concerts for a good time.

“It’s a party at the end of the day,” he says. “If you’re not gonna play songs that are fun, then that’s pretty boring.”

1 the 1975 tour

Gospel group releases first new music in nearly 50 years

Michael casey/the associated press | 6/20/2024, 7 a.m..

She made a single gospel soul record in the 1970s with her brothers, when they were all teenagers. Then Annie …

She made a single gospel soul record in the 1970s with her brothers, when they were all teenagers. Then Annie Brown Caldwell moved on with her life.

Decades later, she was running a clothing store in a tiny Mississippi town and singing on weekends with her husband and children when she got a call from a label founded by David Byrne. They wanted to add a single from her first band, the Staples Jr. Singers, to a compilation record.

That 2019 call led to more — the Luaka Bop label reissued the band’s 1975 record “When Do We Get Paid,” drawing rave reviews in 2022 for its raw sound and mix of blues, funk and soul. And soon the Brown siblings, now in their 60s, found themselves on a course that would make any rising pop star jealous.

In the past four years, they flew for the first time, toured Europe four times and played hipster clubs like Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right. And, finally last year, they saw a performance by Mavis Staples, whose group The Staple Singers inspired their own early sound with genre-busting, socially conscious Stax Records hits. Also a band of siblings, they covered several of their songs.

“It’s been a dream come true,” said Brown Caldwell, who was 11 when she and R.C. and Edward, who were 12 and 13, co-founded The Staples Jr. Singers in 1967. They started playing in the church where their mother was a preacher and father a deacon, and toured by van around the South.

And on Friday, the Browns are releasing “Searching,” their first batch of new songs in nearly 50 years, and gearing up for a tour in July to the Roskilde festival in Denmark as well as the Netherlands, Slovakia and Germany.

“It’s a blessing,” Brown Caldwell said. “It feels good. We are getting older and it seems the Lord just now is blessing our youth like it’s brand new again.”

Their resurgence began with a record collector who stumbled on their first single in a Midwest thrift store and bought it for $1.

Greg Belson, whose gospel collection fills three rooms in Los Angeles, was intrigued that the band’s name was so similar to The Staple Singers. He put “We Got a Race to Run” on a portable turntable he often brings with him, and was struck by their sound: “It sat completely in the wheelhouse of what I look for, which is specifically gospel with a soulful tinge, rather than what I would say more classical church-based gospel,” Belson said.

Yale Evelev, the president of Luaka Bop, heard Belson’s radio show and pulled from his collection for a compilation of 1970s gospel soul songs called “The Time For Peace Is Now.” He wanted to include the Staples Jr. Singers single, but first he had to find the band. He figured out that Annie Brown was now Annie Caldwell, and called all seven listed in Mississippi.

Like Belson, Evelev was attracted to a gospel sound that isn’t heard much on the radio these days. “These are soul records really,” he said. “Soul records with a message. That message imbues the performance with a certain underlying intensity and honesty.”

He reached Brown Caldwell on the last call.

“I never believed that this record would come up again,” Brown Caldwell said. “For real though. Is this for real?”

She agreed to put the single out but her brothers were initially resistant, and they balked at reissuing “When Do We Get Paid.” Only a few hundred original copies of the record exist, one of which Belson bought off a Milwaukee collector for $600.

“There was a lot of family drama that was happening that had existed for a long time,” Evelev said. “We kind of ended up in the middle of it, and it was a lot of back and forth and a lot of yelling at each other.”

They worked it out, and agreed to perform four shows in New York in 2022. Evelev heard some songs that weren’t on their 1975 record and asked if they had any unreleased music. It turned out they recorded about a dozen songs in Muscle Shoals in the 1980s.

Evelev brought in Ahmed Gallab, who performs as the artist Sinkane, as a producer, and he recorded them over two nights in a Mississippi church where they sat in a semi-circle or in the pews as they played. Gallab then went to Nashville to mix it and do some overdubs, aiming to have the songs “ring as true as possible” to when he first heard them play.

Like their first album, “Searching” weaves its gospel message with blues guitar and influences ranging from boogaloo to swamp music to rhythm and blues to soul.

A world-weariness comes through in songs like the lead track, “Living In This World Alone,” with Brown Caldwell lamenting how she misses her mother and tries to “live free from sin” without her.

“I can listen to their voices and hear the stories that they’re talking about and really understand them,” Gallab said. “That’s the one thing that’s really sets them apart, especially when Annie sings. She’s just telling you a story.”

The band members — now four generations of the Brown family — shrug off their newfound celebrity. On the latest record, R.C. plays guitar

and the two other siblings sing. Edward’s son sings backing vocals, R.C.’s son plays bass and R.C.’s grandson plays drums.

They still live in Aberdeen, a town of 5,000 along the Tombigbee River where they grew up and where Edward and R.C. retired from factory jobs. All three insist their mission remains the same as it was all those years ago — to spread the word of God and inspire listeners to follow his path.

Edward Brown said he rarely hears anything good on the radio anymore and worries about younger generations turning to gun violence.

So he is doing his part by singing and trying to “touch people” with his life story.

“You have to do what God said do,” he said. “When I hit the stage, I tell the Lord, ‘take self out, You take over.’ I just give it all to him and do what he wants me to do.”

LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND - JUNE 13: EDITORIAL USE ONLY. NO BOOK COVERS. (EDITORS NOTE: Image has been ... [+] created using a starburst filter) Taylor Swift performs on stage during "Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour" at Anfield on June 13, 2024 in Liverpool, England. (Photo by Gareth Cattermole/TAS24/Getty Images for TAS Rights Management)

With one month left in the European leg of the Eras Tour, Taylor Swift fans are scrambling to get a ticket to her concert. Swift's performances have already been a massive success, with sold-out shows and significant fan engagement across all venues. Pricing remains the key factor that fans, city leaders, and economists follow.

According to a recent Expedia survey, "over 40% said they’d travel for a concert as an excuse to visit a new place." Expedia data shows how how Taylor Swift's tour dates and ticket prices fluctuate based on geographical and economic factors. By examining the intricacies of Swift's Eras Tour ticket availability and pricing, leaders can learn how to approach customer loyalty, support local economies, and prepare for second market and fraudulent risks. Here is how pricing affected the European leg of the tour and how it translates to insights leaders can learn from:

Geographic Pricing Strategies

Location influences the ticket pricing variation for Taylor Swift concert tickets. For instance, Swift's tickets are cheaper in cities like Mexico City and Warsaw compared to New York or London, reflecting local purchasing power. This variation can be attributed to local economic factors, venue capacities, and demand differences.

Economic conditions, such as the cost of living, and average income levels of each market are factors that leaders also consider when deploying new products, or increasing marketing activity in a region. In Swift's case, striking the right balance on market-adjusted pricing allows for both concert-goers and operators to support the artist and their local economy.

No Demand-Based Pricing

Demand-based pricing is a strategy often used by businesses to accommodate for demand patterns that can maximize revenue. High-demand cities and dates (e.g., weekends and holidays) command higher prices. However, Europe employs stricter consumer protections and there is not one vendor similar to Ticketmaster where the majority of sales are made.

Nba finals hit lowest viewership in 3 years, billy joel has disappointing update for fans hoping for a new album.

Due to stricter consumer protection laws in European countries, Eras Tour ticket prices are "about 87% cheaper than in the U.S." The U.S. fanbase picked up on this and for the Paris show it was reported by The Associated Press , that "Americans bought 20% of the tickets." This surge of activity also increased ticket scam activity, Lloyd's Bank reported, U.K. fans estimated to have lost over £1 million since tickets went on sale, and those aged 25-34 are most likely to be targeted by fraudsters.

Pricing Hikes In The Hospitality Sector

The Eras Tour has had a significant impact on the European hospitality sector, leading to a substantial increase in hotel prices. A recent report by Lighthouse suggests that hotel prices in European concert cities are expected to surge by an average of 44% . On the other hand, short-term rentals are less pricing sensitive. Dublin and Liverpool are the only locations where STR pricing rose more strongly than for hotels.

It's clear that supply and demand are influencing the pricing strategy for the Eras Tour. In Europe the hospitality sector has undergone more changes compared to the relatively stable ticket pricing, as opposed to the United States. The popularity of Taylor Swift in Europe illustrates how the economic impact of adjusting pricing, managing ticket availability, and preparing for potential risks can allow for geographical-based activity surges across sectors. Likewise, when businesses analyze market trends it is important to recognize how business activity can trigger a ripple effect in regions and sectors. This can lead to pricing and supply adjustments, and ensure a competitive positioning of their business product or service.

Arizona man planned a mass shooting targeting African Americans at an Atlanta concert to incite a race war, feds say

An Arizona man planned a mass shooting targeting African Americans and other minorities at a rap concert in Atlanta in May, looking to incite a race war ahead of the presidential election, federal authorities said.

Mark Adams Prieto was indicted by a federal grand jury Tuesday on charges of firearms trafficking, transfer of a firearm for use in a hate crime and possession of an unregistered firearm. The indictment follows a monthslong investigation by the FBI that ended with his arrest last month, the Justice Department said. A spokesperson for the agency said Prieto is in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service for transport from New Mexico to Arizona. His attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The investigation into Prieto, 58, of Prescott, began in October, after a confidential source reported to FBI Phoenix that an individual, later identified as Prieto, had expressed a desire to incite a race war prior to the presidential election, the arrest affidavit states. The source told authorities that they had spoken to Prieto more than 15 times over three years at various gun shows. The chats grew from small talk to include political conversations, the affidavit says. Within the last year, the source told authorities that Prieto began making suspicious and alarming comments, including “advocating for a mass shooting,” and specifically targeting Blacks, Jews or Muslims, the affidavit says.

The source said “Prieto believes that martial law will be implemented shortly after the 2024 election and that a mass shooting should occur prior” to its implementation, and asked the source in late 2023 if they were “ready to kill a bunch of people,” which indicated to authorities his desire to recruit people to assist him in carrying out an attack, according to the affidavit.

Prieto was a vendor at gun shows in Prescott and would trade firearms from his personal collection, using only cash deals or trades to evade the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives, the affidavit says, adding that this was corroborated through monitoring with the help of the source.

The FBI had Prieto under surveillance from January to March.

On Jan. 21, Prieto told the source and an undercover FBI agent acting as an associate of the source at a gun show in Phoenix that he wanted them to help him carry out a mass shooting targeting African Americans at a yet-to-be-determined rap concert in Atlanta, the affidavit says.

According to the affidavit, Prieto said: “The reason I say Atlanta. Why, why is Georgia such a f------up state now? When I was a kid that was one of the most conservative states in the country. Why is it not now? Because as the crime got worse in L.A., St. Louis, and all these other cities, all the [N-words] moved out of those [places] and moved to Atlanta. That’s why it isn’t so great anymore. And they’ve been there for a couple, several years.”

He also said that he wanted to target a rap concert because there would be a high concentration of African Americans there and he planned to leave confederate flags after the shooting to send a message that “we’re going to fight back now, and every whitey will be the enemy across the whole country,” and to shout “whities out here killing, what’s we gonna do” and “KKK all the way,” the affidavit says. Prieto said he wanted to show “no mercy, no quarter.”

Prieto is also alleged to have discussed with the source and undercover agent what types of weapons he planned to use, to have suggested that they travel to Atlanta before the attack to store weapons in the area, and to have stressed that the most important thing was a high body count.

Surveillance photo of Mark Prieto at a gun show in Arizona

“He specifically said that the attack should occur following Super Tuesday so that they would know the election candidates,” the affidavit says.

About a month later, while under surveillance, Prieto went to a gun show in Phoenix and walked to the source’s vendor booth, where he asked the source and the undercover agent whether they still planned to participate in the attack, the affidavit says. On the second day of that February gun show, Prieto is alleged to have sold a firearm to the undercover agent for $2,000.

On March 23, at a gun show in Prescott Valley, Prieto told the undercover agent that he still planned to go forward with the attack, saying that if they waited until after the election, “they might have everything in place you can’t even drive, you’ll be stopped,” the affidavit says. He also said that the targeted event would likely be a rap concert at State Farm Arena in Atlanta scheduled to take place May 14 and May 15, or sometime in June or July, according to the affidavit. Authorities did not specify what concert, but the May dates provided match two nights Puerto Rican musician Bad Bunny was scheduled to perform at that arena. Prieto told the undercover agent that he wanted them to wear hoodies, according to the affidavit, because he believed no one was going to be suspicious about someone wearing a hoodie at a rap concert. The next day, Prieto is alleged to have sold an AR-15 rifle to the undercover agent for $1,000 and instructed him to use it during the attack and to bring as many magazines as he could carry, the affidavit says.

At another gun show in April in Prescott Valley, the affidavit says, when the undercover agent asked Prieto whether the attack would still take place in May, he said he wanted to push it back. Prieto was arrested on a New Mexico interstate on May 14. He admitted to knowing the undercover agent and the confidential source and to having discussed with them conducting an attack on a public venue in Atlanta like a “rock” concert attended by young people and minorities.

“However, he told agents that he did not intend to go forward with the attack,” the affidavit states. He is also alleged to have admitted to having sold an AR-15 to the undercover agent and that he told the agent it would be a good firearm to use in the attack. The affidavit says he also told agents he had five firearms in his vehicle and more at his home. Law enforcement subsequently executed a search warrant at his home and recovered more firearms, including an unregistered short-barreled rifle, the Justice Dep a rtment sa id Tuesday.

Betting picks

Odds were sourced on Tuesday, June 18. For live odds, visit BetMGM .

WILL GRAY (Lead, Fantasy & Betting)

  • Winner: Tony Finau (+3300) – Finau has really turned things around, with four straight finishes of T18 or better highlighted by a T3 result at Pinehurst. His price this week speaks to his relatively mediocre history at TPC River Highlands, but a handful of top-25s (including a T13 two years ago) show promise.
  • Top 10: Brian Harman (+250) – Six top-10s in Connecticut since 2013 for the reigning Open champ? Sign me up.
  • Longshot: Stephan Jaeger (+10000) – A winner in Houston, he has been steady since his big breakthrough including a top-25 last week. Anyone who can shoot 58 on the Korn Ferry Tour can get it around TPC River Highlands.
  • Head-to-Head (H2H): Patrick Cantlay (+110) over Ludvig Åberg – I love the prospect of getting Cantlay at plus-money on a course where he has thrived before. The post-major hangover should be a wash between these two and I still have some questions about Åberg’s ability to avoid a weekend swoon.

BEN EVERILL (Senior writer, Fantasy & Betting)

  • Winner: Xander Schauffele (+750) – I am not a fan of these odds but I cannot ignore Schauffele’s history and stat profile for TPC River Highlands. There is better value out there on players like, Åberg, Theegala and Harman but ultimately I think the PGA Champion has enough energy left in the tank to have some fun here.
  • Top 10: Brian Harman (+250) – This guy is a perennial contender at TPC River Highlands so he should be on your radar across the board. Top 10 in four of his last five starts in this event.
  • Longshot: Keegan Bradley (+5000) – The defending champion will have more internal energy than most this week because this is his home region event. It was no surprise last season that Bradley won after a major at a place he had an affinity with, as Matt Fitzpatrick did at the 2023 RBC Heritage after the Masters. As others tire, Bradley will lift.
  • H2H: Patrick Cantlay (+110) over Ludvig Åberg – This is a numbers play. My instinct is Åberg has an awesome chance to win this week but without knowing how much gas came out of the tank of both U.S. Open contenders in this matchup, I see a chance to get plus money on a former course record holder at TPC River Highlands.

CHRIS BREECE (Senior content manager, Golfbet)

  • Winner: Ludvig Aberg (+1400) – With how iconic the finish to the U.S. Open was, does anyone even remember who had the lead after 36 holes? The one thing that kept Ludvig from holding his lead into the weekend was the lack of experience and learning how to navigate a tough major track. That’s not a problem this week. Keep in mind, we’re on the tail end of a three-week stretch. These players are exhausted. The definition of exhausted is a little different for a 24-year-old.
  • Top 10: Sahith Theegala (+240) – He’s quietly becoming one of the most consistent players on TOUR with five Top 10 finishes already this year. I loved his bounce back after an opening 77 last week. He played his final 54 holes in even par. I also like that he has good memories here with a T2 in 2022.
  • Longshot: Kurt Kitayama (+15000) – I think people really need to factor in that exhaustion factor this week. Picking players who have missed recent cuts seems risky, but Kitayama is rested having missed the cut the last two weeks. The reason I like him here is because of our Golfbet key stat of approach shots from 125-150 yards and 150-175 yards. He ranks 19 th and 3 rd in those stats, respectively.
  • H2H: Justin Thomas (-120) over Jordan Spieth – They will be two popular guys to watch this week. Spieth’s crazy win here in 2017 seems like a long time ago. He hasn’t performed well since.

  • Winner: Collin Morikawa (+1000) – It’s no secret that Morikawa is on the cusp of victory. It will happen sooner than later and every golf bettor will be kicking themselves for not backing him that week because of how obvious it was that he’s ready to win. With how he’s been putting over the last couple weeks, Morikawa should fill the scorecard with plenty of birdies.
  • Top 10: Brian Harman (+250) – There is just no reason not to back Brian Harman at the Travelers. Proven horse for the course and in some really good form (no worse than T33 in the last 4 starts which included both PGA Championship and U.S. Open).
  • Longshot: Akshay Bhatia (+8000) – Tremendous value here for a guy who finished T22 at the Memorial and T16 at the US Open in his last two starts. Playing great golf and should be closer to the +4000 range.
  • H2H: Brian Harman (-120) over Sepp Straka – The trust in Brian Harman this week is high.
