After a record-breaking concert at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium, where he drew a crowd of approximately 73,000 fans, Ed Sheeran decided the night was still young. The 32-year-old singer-songwriter made an unexpected visit to Santa’s Pub, a karaoke bar in Nashville that he frequented during his residence in the city about ten years ago.
Sheeran’s surprise appearance at the bar was nothing short of electrifying. He took to the stage and delivered a passionate rendition of the Backstreet Boys’ 1999 classic, “I Want It That Way.” The atmosphere was electric as fans joined in, singing along with the pop star. But the surprises didn’t end there. Sheeran also performed One Direction’s hit “What Makes You Beautiful,” much to the delight of the audience.
In a heartwarming moment, a newlywed couple, still in their wedding attire, joined Sheeran on stage. The singer serenaded them with his romantic ballad “Thinking Out Loud,” making their special day even more memorable. The crowd cheered and celebrated the couple, creating a magical atmosphere in the bar.
Sheeran’s love for Santa’s Pub was evident. He reminisced about his time in Nashville and shared his fond memories of the karaoke caravan on his Instagram. He captioned a post, “Celebrating breaking the attendance record at Nissan Stadium in Nashville tonight at Santa’s pub. When I lived here, this was the spot, and it still is. Karaoke caravan and cheap beer, what’s not to love x.”
This isn’t the first time Sheeran has surprised his fans with unexpected performances. Just a few days prior, during a concert in Detroit, the singer brought out rap legend Eminem. The duo performed hits like “Lose Yourself” and “Stan,” leaving the audience in awe.
