Reviewing the live show at Madison Square Garden, NME described it as “a raw and raucous night”. The five-star write-up added: “It’s the kind of night that only The 1975 could host, the type of evening that leaves you buzzing and remembering why you love live music in the first place, walking home and thinking aloud, as one fan did before heading towards the subway: “I didn’t know how much I needed that.”
Back in September, frontman Matty Healy assured fans that the band weren’t splitting up, after it was announced that they are taking an “indefinite hiatus” after their global tour wraps.
Healy has faced extensive controversy this past year, having been banned from performing in Malaysia after their set was cut short during day one of the Good Vibes Festival in July, when Healy criticised the Malaysian government for anti-LGBTQ laws and kissed his bassist on stage.
He then delivered a lengthy speech regarding the situation during a show in Texas last month, where he said he was “fucking pissed off with this shit”.
The Malaysian government has announced that concert organisers must now have a “kill switch” to cut off performances that break guidelines.
