The 1975 will be taking a break after getting off the road.

During the group’s show in Sacramento, California, on Tuesday, September 26 — the first headlining date on their U.S. Still … At Their Very Best tour — frontman Matty Healy announced, “After this tour, we will be going on an indefinite hiatus with shows.”

Footage of Healy’s remarks was posted by the @The1975_MFC fan account.

It’s certainly understandable that The 1975 might want to slow things down a bit after an eventful few years, which included extensive touring behind their latest album, 2022’s Being Funny in a Foreign Language. Let’s not forget Healy’s whirlwind apparent-but-never-officially-confirmed romance with Taylor Swift and the controversy over The 1975’s concert in Malaysia, during which Healy criticized the country’s strict anti-LGBTQ+ laws and kissed bassist Ross MacDonald onstage.

The 1975 still has ways to go before their hiatus begins. The U.S. leg of the Still … At Their Very Best tour is scheduled into December, which will then be followed by a European trek that doesn’t wrap up until March 2024.
