The band were set to play Laneway Festival in Brisbane, Australia on Saturday, but canceled just hours before their set.

“Unfortunately after a medical examination at 5.30pm today the doctor has advised that Matty is too weak to play,” the band sand. “We hope to be back on track for tomorrow’s show in Sydney.”

Healy quote-tweeted the announcement, saying jokes about people saying he had coronavirus were not funny.

He also shared an update and thanked fans for the well wishes. He also confirmed that the band would play the same festival on Sunday night.

“I am alive and well shit just got way too vibey I’m still taking it easy but I’ll see you tonight,” Matty Healy wrote.

The following night, the band performed and Healy donned a hospital gown during his set, which seemed pretty fitting. He even came out with an IV drip. You can see some images of that below.
