Ed Sheeran praised by fans after battling on through tech problems on his opening night of epic Wembley Stadium gigs | The Sun

ED Sheeran has been praised by fans after he was forced to battle on when his microphone stopped working as he opened the first night of his epic Wembley Stadium dates.

The A-Team singer brought his A-game as he bounced back from sound problems as he kicked off his first out of five nights at the iconic venue on Friday.

Ed, 31, was forced to improvise as he was hit with unexpected sound issues.

The star, whose hot track Brace It, with Ishawna, is out today, said: "It's the worst thing that could happen,"  but thanked fans for coming to see him even though his mentor 'Elton John, Glastonbury and Diana Ross were playing.'

He added that he was 'truly honoured,' fans chose to come and see him.

A reveller told The Sun: "Ed was such a hero.You could see he was disappointed his mic and ear pack stopped working, but still carried on playing his guitar like a true showman.

As soon as it was resolved Ed was determined to start his show all over again as he played A-Team and Tides from his new album."
