Matty Healy pays tribute to Lewis Capaldi watching The 1975 wrap up TRNSMT 2023

MATTY Healy paid tribute to Lewis Capaldi as TRNSMT came to a close in 1975.

The loud-mouthed frontman confirmed the 26-year-old – who was spotted at the festival last night – was watching.

He said: “Our good friend, who is taking a well-deserved break tonight, is with us.”

“Our good friend Lewis cannot come to the Reading and Leeds Festival.

“So on Saturday in Reading and Sunday in Leeds to celebrate ten years of our debut album, The 1975 will play this album in full to support our good friend Lewis Capaldi.”

It comes weeks after the singer was forced to cut his performance at Glastonbury by six minutes because he was struggling with his voice.

Lewis was supported by adoring fans who sang his songs to him while he was struggling with Tourette’s Syndrome.

Healy came on stage hidden in an orange festival trash can before jumping out to the delight of fans.

The controversial frontman, who almost always has something to say, also referenced his previous appearance on TRNSMT in 2017

He said: “We love Glasgow.

“I got a slap in the boobs and it was a weird time.

“It was a good show and we’re really excited to be back.”

The 34-year-old frontman is known for his rollicking antics and didn’t disappoint as he drove crowds insane with his signature moves.

After it was revealed earlier this year that he was dating music superstar Taylor Swift, the band received more attention than ever.

But for a group that knows nothing but success – all five of their albums have topped the charts – no amount of hysteria can unnerve the hyperactive boys.

With hits like “The Sound”, “Sex” and “Love It If We Made It” as well as tracks from their latest album “Being Funny in a Foreign Language”, it was obvious why they are considered one of the best live acts on the planet .

Royal Blood went from zeros to heroes at TRNSMT as fans felt the rock duo’s love.

The Brighton duo of Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher played in Scotland for the first time since their ‘tantrum’ in Dundee last month.

Performing on Radio 1’s “Big Weekend,” Kerr had to say he meant “no offense” after calling the audience “pathetic” and storming off the stage.

This time, however, they didn’t have to play pantomime villains as Glasgow Green revelers embraced the pair.

The rockers entertained them with a barrage of guitar riffs and beats that got the huge audience dancing.

After an incident among the players, they were forced to take a break from the game, but were soon able to resume play.

Katie Gardiner and her friend Caitlin Cockayne, both 20, took a seven-hour trip to visit TRNSMT.

After seeing Harry Styles in Frankfurt, the two from Essex flew from Germany to Glasgow and showed that they are true super fans of Healy & Co.

Caitlin said: “This is the seventh time I’ve seen The 1975 this year.
“They are great and always put on a great show.”

Katie added: “I got cards for my birthday so it was a great present. The 1975s were the main reason for going, but all the performances were amazing.”

The journey of pals Jade Fyfe, 30, and Nikki Money, 33, wasn’t quite that long, but it was definitely pretty stressful.

They snagged two tickets at the very last minute and had to rush from their homes in Dundee to get to Glasgow on time.

Nikki said: “My dad got us through and we had to stop along the way to get our outfits.

“We went to a few stores to try on things and ended up getting what we needed.”

Jade added, “The line-up was great. We later broke up because I wanted to see Nothing But Thieves and Nikki was watching The 1975.

“The atmosphere was great and brought out the best in everyone. I always say I prefer music to people.”

Meanwhile, Brodie Sloss, 18, spent hours dressing up after driving down from Oban, Argyll.

The self-confessed Barbie girl drew a lot of attention when she paired her glittery outfit with a Saltire flag.

She said: “I had the most amazing weekend.

“The performances were so good and I hope to come back.”

With so much energy in the air, it took a dance routine to get people what they wanted.

Becky Hill, 29, was the musician responsible for getting everyone pumped – and didn’t disappoint.

The singer, who appeared on the first season of The Voice UK, has never been so popular after winning Best Dance Act at The Brits two years in a row.

But when she sang the hit single “Gecko (Overdrive)” she brought the audience back a little and added to the already loud atmosphere.

Earlier in the day, the Kooks showed that they are still at the top of the list as well.

The English pop-rock band performed all of their hits including ‘Naive’ and ‘She Moves In Her Own Way,’ which immediately got fans excited.

On the King Tut’s stage, it came as no surprise that Lucia and the Best Boys looked like this – she’s also a successful model.

The Glasgow band felt an instant connection with the crowd after getting the party started with their rock vibes.

They are led by singer Lucia Fairfull, 27, from Drymen on the banks of Loch Lomond.

The singer has an impressive fashion background and has worked with a variety of top designers, from Alexander McQueen and Valentino to Charles Jeffery.

But it’s clear that she’s just as comfortable on stage as she is on the runway.

The group recently announced that their debut album, Burning Castles, will be released on September 29th.
