Taylor Swift made a surprise cameo during her 1975 concert in London on Thursday night to give her first live performance of “Anti-Hero” from her chart-topping album “Midnights.” He treated the crowd to a cover of 1975’s “The City.”
Arriving unannounced on stage in a sparkly silver dress, Swift cast an excited look around the stadium before picking up the microphone. He acknowledged the crowd with a smile and strapped on his guitar to sing “Anti-Hero,” as captured in fan videos that have since spread like wildfire online.
