“Last night was the honestly best night of my life eternally grateful to @the1975 @taylorswift13,” said somebody else.
Another fan wrote: “Did The 1975 actually bring out Taylor Swift last night or did I make that up because the whole thing feels like a fever dream?
“Running out of the toilets four drinks down and seeing her on the screen when I tell you I RAN for my life omg.”
“Taylor Swift should truly have an O2 residency at this point,” suggested another fan.
“It was such an ethereal experience!!” said another.
“She just casually said to the crowd, ‘So, are you all enjoying your Thursday night?’ whilst everyone was losing their s***.”
Anti-Hero is up for Best International Song of the Year at the BRITs, which take place next month.
