The 1975 were joined by Lewis Capaldi during their set at the Utilita Arena in Newcastle tonight (January 25).
Much like their other ‘At Their Very Best’ shows, which have seen the band joined by Taylor Swift and Charli XCX, a knock at the door of the on-stage house was heard and a video played out jokingly introducing Capaldi as Harry Styles.
The singer-songwriter then performed Matty Healy and co’s 2013 track ‘Antichrist’ before he went on to cover Swift’s 2008 single ‘Love Story’. You can view footage below.
