Watch Taylor Swift debut ‘Anti-Hero’ live at The 1975’s London show

In the first of two nights at London's O2 Arena, Taylor Swift popped up as a special guest.


The 1975‘s At Their Very Best tour has been making headlines since it kicked off in the US late last year. But at their first London show at the O2 it wasn’t Matty’s penis grabbing or snogging of audience members that got people talking – it was a surprise performance from Biggest Popstar On The Planet, Taylor Swift.

Taylor joined the band on stage to perform two songs – The 1975’s ‘The City’ and a live debut of her already-iconic ‘Midnights‘ anthem, ‘Anti-Hero’. Watch a clip of ‘The City’ below.

And here’s the world’s debut performance of ‘Anti-Hero’.


Rumours have been swirling about a collaboration between The 1975 and Taylor Swift for some time. Healy denied anything was coming soon back in October in an interview with Radio 1. “We haven’t done it yet,” Healy said. “We’d love to though.” He also referred to Swift as “one of the best songwriters.” Healy later revealed that The 1975 did work “a bit” on ‘Midnights’, but that version of the album never came out.

Phoebe Bridgers, Harry Styles and Charli XCX were also in attendance at last night’s show. Fans are hoping one of them will be tonight’s special guest at The 1975’s second night at The O2.
