THE 1975’s Matt Healy wears hospital gown during Sydney show after recent health concerns

The 1975 hospital gown Sydney

“I am alive and well shit just got way too vibey”, explains The 1975 frontman

The 1975 took the decision to cancel their Saturday set just a few hours before the show. Their headlining performance was scheduled to take place at Laneway Festival in Brisbane, Australia, but singer Matt Healy experienced some health issues and followed the doctors’ recommendation to recharge for at least a day.

The same day The 1975 posted an update on Healy’s condition:

“Unfortunately after a medical examination at 5.30pm today the doctor has advised that Matty is too weak to play. We hope to be back on track for tomorrow’s show in Sydney.”

Healy retweeted the band’s update, thanked fans for their support and promised to stay afloat for the show on Sunday night:

“I am alive and well shit just got way too vibey I’m still taking it easy but I’ll see you tonight,” the singer wrote.

In the light of the blown up coverage of coronavirus, Healy wrote on social media that jokes saying he had coronavirus were “not funny”.

On Sunday night the band did perform and all went well. Better that well. Healy, inspired by his out-of-the-blue medical issues, came out on stage wearing a hospital gown. More over, he was “accompanied” by an IV drip on stage! See the live footage and photos below:
