The 1975 has said it has cancelled shows in Taiwan and Indonesia – a day after Malaysia banned it from performing there after its frontman kissed a male bandmate on stage and criticised the country’s anti-LGBT laws.
“Unfortunately, due to current circumstances, it is impossible to proceed with the scheduled shows,” the British band said in a statement.
It did not elaborate further.
The band were headlining the Good Vibes Festival in Kuala Lumpur on Friday when Matt Healy staged his protest.
The gig was cut short and the group were banned from performing in the Muslim-majority country, where homosexuality is a crime punishable by 20 years in prison.
The three-day music festival was subsequently cancelled by the Malaysian authorities.
