Matty Healy Eats Raw Meat Live Onstage
The 1975, who are currently on a tour to America, had their performance at NYC’s Madison Square Garden on Monday night. At one point in their performance, singer and rhythm guitarist Matty Healy ripped off his shirt, got on his knees, and pretended to masturbate. He then took a huge chunk of meat and started devouring it, shocking the audience.
The meat wasn’t cooked at all, but Healy continued to chew and swallow it. The moment was also watched by the British band’s viewers on Twitch, who were getting a live broadcast of the concert. It is not yet clear which animal was butchered for Healy’s onstage meal; however, it did look like some kind of bone-in chop.

Healy’s mother, Denise Welch, was also present at the event and later tweeted a photo from outside the venue, writing, “Oh what a night!!” Meanwhile, the reason behind the singer’s meat-devouring act still remains unknown.
Fans Shocked by the Singer’s Move
The footage of Healy munching on raw meat is now going viral on social media, with many users expressing their disbelief over the move. “There is no way I could possibly explain to my 18-year-old self that I just watched Matty Healy grope himself onstage and eat a raw steak before crawling into a television,” wrote a user.
A fan tweeted, “imagine going to a 1975 concert not knowing much about them and then matt healy starts smoking a cigarette and touching himself, eating raw steak, and doing push-ups on stage.”
“Mom is coming to see The 1975 tomorrow and how do I explain to her that she might see Matt Healy touch himself on stage or consume raw meat which is a VERY different vibe than when she came to see ILIWYS with me,” wrote another one.
