Sheeran full set: watch performing the concert at Pyramyd stage just six years after his debut at one of the festival’s smallest venues.
Sheeran performed a mash-up of his song ‘Take It Back’, Stevie Wonder‘s ‘Superstition’ and Bill Withers’ ‘Ain’t No Sunshine’ .On Sunday, he closed the festival, attracting a much younger audience than Friday and Saturday’s headliners, Radiohead and Foo Fighters.
The 26-year-old admitted he was “very nervous but very excited” to be there.
“For those of you who haven’t seen one of my shows before or haven’t heard one of my songs, please pretend that you know them,” he told the audience.
“For those of you who have, please sing all of the words.”
