Matty Healy On Receiving The Support Of U2’s Bono

The 1975’s Matt Healy has been going through a rough patch in the public eye. However, some musicians seem to have his back, including U2’s Bono. Here’s what Matt shared with the crowd during a performance in Dublin, he said:

“Honestly, this is not a name-drop; this is a celebration of them as people. Chris Martin and Bono have sent us the most beautiful messages, packages, kind of good wishes, in honestly such a genuine way, and it made us feel so beautiful.”

The singer was already under the limelight with his recent breakup with Taylor Swift, so Oasis’ Noel Gallagher’s recent words were another pill to swallow. However, Healy decided to make fun of the situation and shared with the crowd:

“We asked Liam [Gallagher] to open up, and he said he would have done it, but he was busy. 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!”

Noel recently had a chat with NME; he called 1975 a ‘shit’ band and claimed they shouldn’t be considered a rock band and receive a Brit for best rock/alternative act. He said:

“I was watching it with my kids, two teenage lads, thinking, ‘Is it me being a grumpy old man, or is this shit?’ They were both going, ‘Oh no, this is f*cking shit.‘ The 1975 Best Rock Band? Someone needs to redefine that immediately because that is, I don’t know what that is, but it’s certainly not f*cking rock. Whatever rock is, that’s not it.”
