The crowd’s energy soared as he seamlessly transitioned into the timeless classic “Thinking Out Loud,” showcasing his versatility as an artist and proving why he is a force to be reckoned with in the music industry.

The momentum continued with the pulsating beats of “Bloodstream,” setting the stage for a memorable medley of “Don’t / No Diggity.” Ed effortlessly blended his own chart-topping track with the R&B classic, creating a dynamic fusion that had the audience dancing and singing along.

As the set progressed, Ed Sheeran treated the crowd to the global sensation “Shape of You,” a song that needs no introduction. The Roundhouse transformed into a massive sing-along, with fans revelling in the opportunity to experience this megastar’s performance in an intimate setting.

Closing his set with the infectious “Bad Habits,” Ed Sheeran left the audience on a high note, and the cheers and applause that followed were a testament to the magic he brought to the stage. However, the surprises didn’t end there. Ed returned later in the night to join forces with The Darkness, showcasing the incredible chemistry between the two acts.

In a brief but enlightening moment, Ed Sheeran took a moment to share insights into his craft, offering an explanation of his Loop Pedal and how it enhances his live performances. This personal touch allowed fans to connect with the artist deeper, emphasizing his roots as a singer-songwriter from Suffolk.

Ed Sheeran’s surprise appearance at The Roundhouse was nothing short of a musical spectacle.
