Popular British singer and songwriter Ed Sheeran recently marked his presence in Mumbai for a concert, which was a rage. The musician performed at the Mahalaxmi Race Course Grounds. This concert is part of his Asia and Europe Tour in 2024. It also marks Sheeran’s third concert in India, following his last performance in 2017. During his performance, he also shared the stage with a couple of Indian artists. A video of him sharing the stage with Diljit Dosanjh also went viral, where the two popstars can be seen belting the Punjabi single ‘Lover’. Now, Diljit has shared his experience sharing the stage with Ed.

He expressed, “It was wonderful performing with Ed Sheeran last evening. He truly knows how to work a crowd. He is such a giving artiste and sharing the stage with him was a real joy and an absolute honour. Whoever said language is a barrier needs to know that music is a language of its own.”

Fans who turned up for his concert were in for a surprise when Diljit Dosanjh joined him with his popular track ‘Lover’. In the video, Diljit was seen performing the track ‘Lover’ while Sheeran played the chords with his guitar. This was surely a heartfelt moment for the fans, as this was a collaboration no one ever anticipated. The duo set the stage on fire, and fans were heard cheering for them.

Ed Sheeran arrived in India for his special performance in Mumbai this weekend. He kicked off his India visit by spending time with school kids and performing his hits for them. He then spent time with several Bollywood celebrities as they hosted special meet-ups for them. Amid all his engagements, the singer-songwriter also took time to express his love for Indian music and revealed some of his favorite artists.

Speaking with Brut India, Ed Sheeran shared, “The first time I came over here (India), I went to a small party with a bunch of people. Those were big stars in Bollywood. And I think that kind of opened the door. There’s a lot of Indian music that’s fantastic. I’d say that’s kind of what I’ve been listening to the most for the last, like, a year and a bit.”

When he was asked about some of the artists he has been listening to, Ed Sheeran promptly replied, “I have listened to a lot of Diljit Dosanjh. I think he is great. I love Armaan Mallik, obviously having worked with him. And I think King has made some really exciting stuff.”

For the unversed, Ed Sheeran returned to Mumbai, India, for the second time, six years after his previous blockbuster successful outing with the Divide Tour in 2017.
