The 1975 recreated looks and scenes from American Psycho, The Ring and The Blair Witch Project at their ‘Halloween Party’ concert in Detroit last night (October 31).

Fans took to social media to share how impressed they were with the Manchester band’s efforts at the Michigan City’s Little Caesars Arena.

Bandleader Matty Healy donned a range of outfits including dressing up as murderous psychopath Patrick Bateman from the 2000 film American Psycho.

Elsewhere onstage, he acted out the horrifying scene from 2002 film The Ring in which video analyst Noah is killed when Samara’s ghost crawls out of the TV set he’s looking at.

In another clip shared by fans, Healy is seen recreating the “found footage” camcorder scenes from 1999’s The Blair Witch Project. The acting was shown on stage screens rather than performed onstage. Some eagle-eyed fans also believe the edited footage momentarily showed Healy’s bottom.

Lead guitarist Adam Hann, bassist Ross MacDonald, and drummer-producer George Daniel also wore Halloween-themed outfits during the show, including WWF/E wrestler The Undertaker, a masked chainsaw killer and the DC character The Joker.

In other clips Healy put his microphone up to a singing skeleton, which sang snippets of Nickelback‘s ‘How You Remind Me’ and Maroon 5‘s ‘Payphone’ back to him.

“No one and I mean NO ONE does Halloween like The 1975. period,” wrote one fan on X while sharing a clip of The 1975’s The Ring scene.

Another said: “The 1975 are the best performers of our generation. they have upped the bar for concerts because these are full fledged complex productions with a storyline.”
