Recently, an extensive interview of 1975’s Matt Healy has been making the rounds where he talked about the paid meet and greet. He said that he doesn’t take “transient, ephemeral thing” for granted that connect the fan and the artist at a concert and hits on his disdain for meet-and-greets.

“It’s people reaching for something,” said Matty, “which is why I hate paid meet-and-greets: you’ve paid for the album; you’ve paid for the ticket; you’ve paid for the parking; you’ve got them in the room and somebody’s gone, ‘How do we monetize that bit?’”

Matty added: “If you’re an artist and you do paid meet-and-greets … you take the money off the fan. I challenge you to do that.”
