The red-haired singer took a nasty spill during his first performance opening for Taylor Swift, and a fan caught it all on camera! Click on to see Ed’s scary fall.
Ed Sheeran might be a talented guitarist, but he certainly doesn’t seem too coordinated. During his first gig opening for Taylor Swift on Mar. 13 he collapsed HARD trying to jump from one speaker to another. Now a fan video of the moment has hit the internet.
Ed Sheeran Takes A Hard Fall On Stage
Performing the song “You Need Me, I Don’t Need You,” Ed was getting very into his performance and made the adrenaline-aided decision to try to pull off a classic rocker move of jumping off a speaker. He just couldn’t stick the landing.
Leaping from one speaker to another, Ed wasn’t able to get his footing, slipped off and tumbled to the stage head first. Though the fall looks pretty bad on tape — made worse by the fact that it cuts out right after he collapses — the singer quickly got back to his feet and finished performing the song. Now, that’s actually pretty rock ‘n’ roll!
Ed hasn’t commented on the situation yet, though he may now that there’s video proof, but hours before the show he tweeted about having the flu, saying, “Flucinating… this flu is making me dream the weirdest s**t, dunno what’s going on.” This guy’s a trooper — fighting off the flu and a hard fall to perform for all of his fans.
Taylor Swift & Ed Sheeran On Tour Together
We’re sure that Taylor was there to comfort him when he finished his performance. The two have definitely gotten close over the past weeks, staying up late and taking cute pics together. And they’ll be spending time with each other for the foreseeable future — Taylor’s “Red” tour, which Ed is opening for, includes 67 shows and goes until September!
And Ed will have plenty of time to practice that speaker jump.
