The 1975 kicked off their "Still... at their very best" tour in Sacramento on Tuesday night. During the show, frontman Matty Healy seemingly announced that the band will be going on a lengthy break from performing at concerts after the tour concludes.
"We love coming to this place and playing for you guys and it's wonderful you're all here," Healy said in a break between songs. "After this tour we'll be going on an indefinite hiatus of shows so it's wonderful to have you guys with us tonight."
The band's current tour is due to make its way across North America until the end of the year before resuming in Europe in the new year. The final show on the tour is scheduled to take place in Amsterdam on March 24.
The 1975, Healy specifically, have become a lightning rod for controversy and headlines this year including his appearance on a podcast where racist jokes about Ice Spice were made. Healy subsequently apologised for being part of that conversation but was later called out by Rina Sawayama, who is signed to the musician's label. He was also in a brief relationship with Taylor Swift and caused an incident in Malaysia after criticizing the country's discriminatory LGBTQ laws.
