What was supposed to be the most anticipated concert of the year turned sour when the Good Vibes Festival (GVF) was forced to cancel. This comes after a controversial outburst from The 1975 frontman, Matty Healy, who threw offensive slurs and remarks towards Malaysia’s laws.

Following the outrageous incident, the festival was halted in its tracks at the end of Day 1. This inexplicably led to the cancellation of the remaining performances for the next two days, leaving thousands of GVF fans disheartened.
One of the acts that many Malaysians were looking forward to was the legendary band The Strokes. In light of the devastating news, the band’s lead singer took to his Instagram to offer a few words of encouragement.

The lead singer, Julian Casablancas, addressed his Malaysian fans on his personal Instagram. “I know you’ve been waiting 20 years for The Strokes to come play. Currently trying to figure something out,” he wrote in the post. He concluded his message with a promise to update his Malaysian fans as soon as possible.
The post has drawn in various positive feedback from fans, who were touched by Julian’s kindness and were comforted by his assurance. Netizens showed their appreciation for the artist’s empathetic gesture and eagerly expressed their desire to see the band perform.
Hopefully, The Strokes can make their comeback to Malaysia soon. We’re looking forward to the day that every fan gets the performance that they have long awaited for!
