The 1975 have announced details of an acoustic gig in Sydney to raise money for the ongoing bushfire relief effort.
Frontman Matt Healy will kick into in solo mode, headlining an epic bill that also features Ruel, Mansionair, E^ST and Kučka at Sydney’s Metro Theatre this Tuesday, Feb 4th.
The unplugged benefit concert was announced on screens at Laneway’s Sydney leg today:

It comes after the band were forced to cancel their set at Laneway Brisbane on Saturday, after Healy was hospitalised with a “serious illness”.
“Guys thank you for all your lovely wishes,” Healy updated fans on Twitter, ahead of the band’s Sydney performance. “I am alive and well shit just got way too vibey I’m still taking it easy but I’ll see you tonight for maybe quite a calm set which could be nice anyway!!”
Laneway continues in Adelaide next Friday.
