The 1975’s Matty Healy gave a very emotional speech at the band’s concert on Tuesday night following the terror attack in Healy’s native Manchester on Sunday.
“I’m f**king pissed off,” he said. “I’m bored. I’m bored of nationalism and I’m bored of racism. Whatever. It’s over. Nationalism, religion, all these regressive things, they’re over. We can’t carry on in the way that we’re carrying on,” he said.
Also speaking out on the tragedy is U2 frontman Bono. During an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Tuesday, the singer said the incident was an attack on “everything we love.”
“They hate music. They hate women. They even hate little girls. They hate everything that we love,” he said. “And, you know, the worst of humanity was on view in Manchester last night, but so was the best as people took perfect strangers into their houses and cued up blood banks.”
Bono added that Manchester has an undefeatable spirit and will move forward following the attack.
