File this one under "things we never want to see again at a concert".
Okay, this is bizarre. Matty Healy, the vocalist for The 1975, ate a chunk of raw Tomahawk steak meat on the Madison Square Garden stage last night.
We don't know if this is just something he does now or if it's another strange antic to rile up audiences, but we don't like it.
Healy took sizeable bites out of the Tomahawk after a suite of songs while he was the sole band member on stage. After consuming the meat, he looked at the stage's stack of televisions playing news clips about concerning world events before doing pushups.
In an apparent display of critiquing masculinity, the meat-eating occurred before Healy did the pushups and after he sat on a couch with a hand on his crotch. "Sorry if you brought your Dad to the show and I was touching my dick…. that's your fault for bringing your Dad," he told the audience.

Right now, we're a bit scared of what Matty Healy will do once The 1975 tours Australia next year.
The highly anticipated At Their Very Best tour will see the band grace stages in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne,
Armed with new songs from their latest album, Being Funny In A Foreign Language, and a string of hits from previous albums, fans can witness the distinctive aesthetic, ardent fanbase and unique sonic approach.
Healy recently lashed out at triple j after the youth broadcaster promoted their tour. While triple j was across the announcement, he wasn't very happy with their efforts promoting the band.
The frontman shared a screenshot of triple j's Instagram post about the tour, captioned with, "Play our music then before you start licking our arse just cos you've finally realised we're mint".
Doubling down, Healy switched his attention to Twitter, saying, "You literally have nothing to do with us coming to Australia don't start getting involved now. You don't have a monopoly on cool and the head of your company is a knobhead so yous (sic) can f*ck off".
