Ed Sheeran’s been incredibly busy: not only has he managed to score the first ever UK number 1 album announced on a Friday, but he’s just played the first of his 3 sold out Wembley shows.

To thank his fans for all the support, the 'Thinking Out Loud' singer decided to bring on a very special guest, the Rocket Man himself, Elton John.

John has previously dueted with George Michael on ‘Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me’, Lady Gaga on ‘Hello Hello’ and Blue on ‘Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word’ but this time he went for something much more fun: a stadium stomping rendition of the singer’s 1976 number ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’.

Sheeran and Elton then went on to perform ‘Afire Love’ from the headliners x album. Watch a clip of the performance below.

Singer Kiki Dee had originally recorded the duet with Elton, which was later turned into a club banger in the 90’s when RuPaul joined the fun.


Earlier this week, it was reported that tickets for the Wembley gigs on resell website Viagogo had been stopped as there was a “mistake” with the bookings. This follows in the same steps as Taylor Swift, who the week before had tickets to her shows also taken off the site.
