The 1975 were joined by frontman Matty’s dad Tim Healy at their Manchester gig this weekend – see him sing ‘All I Need To Hear’ below.

Healy – a star of TV shows Benidorm and Auf Wiedershen Pet – has performed the track, from 2022 album Being Funny in a Foreign Language, with his son’s band before and did so again at the AO Arena on Sunday night (February 18).

The gig – part of the band’s ongoing Still… At Their Very Best tour of the UK and Europe – also saw them play rare track ‘Milk’ live for the first time in years, dedicated to young fan Rhiannon.

Matty Healy said of the performance: “We had quite a special one today. A young girl called Rhiannon, she’s had a tough life, you wouldn’t be able to tell, she’s a cool, nice person. I asked her if she had any favourite songs she wanted us to play, and she did. She gave us a very deep cut, and we’re gonna try to get it right for you, Rhiannon.”
