Here’s Why The 1975 Turned Down Touring With Ed Sheeran

But there's no beef here he assures

The 1975 frontman Matty Healy has shared his reason for turning down touring with Ed Sheeran.

Sharing what could have been a career-defining moment for the band, Matty told The New York Times that he was asked to be a support act for ‘the biggest singer-songwriter in the world’.

“(It would have) made me money that I’ve never even seen or heard of in my life,” he openly said.

“Think about the money you think I’m getting offered – it’s not just offered”

“it’s what he can afford because of what he makes for shows – and then just triple it. It’s insane”

However, Matty and the rest of the bad chose to turn the offer down. Explaining with a tweet that there was no beef between him and Ed, he said they simply turned down the offer because they wanted to do their own shows.

“Just to be clear I have mad respect for Ed Sheeran and I didn’t decline sharing a stage with him I just wanted to do our own shows instead”

“He’s always been so nice to me personally and publicly so don’t start a twitter thing for fun.”
