The audience at The 1975's concert on Friday night in London was in for a treat since Taylor Swift made a surprise guest appearance. Swift surprised the audience at the O2 Arena when she took the stage to sing "Anti-Hero" live for the first time.
The 1975's hit, which spent 11 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, had recently debuted at the top of the list. In a video posted on Twitter, fans can see Swift performing the song while playing a white guitar and wearing a sparkly, "Mirrorball"-inspired mini dress.
The crowd sang along as she also performed The 1975's hit "The City". This was Swift's first stage appearance since September, when she performed "All Too Well (10 Minute Version)" at the Ryman Auditorium, Nashville, where she received the Songwriter-Artist of the Decade Award.
This performance comes just two months before Swift's highly-anticipated Eras Tour, which begins on March 17th in Glendale, Arizona.
The 1975's At Their Very Best tour has been known for its wild performances, including lead singer Matty Healy eating giant slabs of raw meat mid-performance, making out with fans on stage, kissing his bandmate Ross MacDonald, and even getting a tattoo while on stage.
In December, Healy also joined emo rockers Dashboard Confessional during the Audacy Beach Festival, which the 1975 headlined. Fans were delighted to see Swift at the event, and her performance of "Anti-Hero" has since gained popularity.
The Eras Tour is about to start, and fans can't wait to see what additional surprises Swift has in store for them. The collaboration between Taylor Swift and 1975 is a match made in heaven, as both artists have a strong fan base and have been making waves in the music industry.
Swift, who is known for her emotional and personal songwriting, perfectly complements The 1975's unique blend of pop and rock music. The 1975's lead singer, Matty Healy, had previously expressed his admiration for Swift, calling her "a genius" and "the best songwriter of her generation." This performance is a testament to the mutual respect and admiration that both artists have for each other.
