The 1975 brought TRNSMT to an unconventional close on Sunday night, with frontman Matty Healy arriving in a red wheelie bin.

Wheeling Healy onto the stage in Glasgow Green dressed in doctors’ coats and glasses, the band kicked off their set with Looking For Somebody (To Love).

Healy revealed amid the set that Lewis Capaldi was watching the set from backstage, after the star received a welcome tribute from Niall Horan during his set on Friday.

“Our good friend Lewis Capaldi is joining us this evening. He’s watching backstage,” said Healy.

Capaldi recently announced he would be taking a break from live performances to focus on his physical and mental health.

Healy revealed that his band will replace Capaldi as headliner at the upcoming Reading and Leeds festival.

He said: “Film this because I’m not going to do an Instagram post, I’m not on the social media anymore, so people know.

“So, on Saturday at Reading and Sunday at Leeds in celebration of 10 years of our debut album The 1975, we will be playing that album in full in support of our good friend Lewis Capaldi.”

Healy also referenced his past issues with drugs after playing the song Love Me: “That really highlights when you’re not on drugs.

“Why would you want to put a wall between it?

“This is f****** amazing. Thank you so much. This means so much to us.

“We f****** love Glasgow. We are very happy to be back.”
