The British crooner performed "Beast of Burden" with the iconic rock band
Sheeran, 24, took a break from his x tour, to join the Stones at their Missouri concert stop and surprise fans with a joint performance of the band’s hit, “Beast of Burden.”
The “Thinking Out Loud” singer expressed his excitement at the opportunity over social media on Saturday, Tweeting “Amazing night playing with @RollingStones, what a moment.”
“Just sung a song on stage with these ladz,” Sheeran wrote.
In a later photo, Sheeran is seemingly in deep discussion with guitarist Keith Richards, writing “Learning how to be led astray.”
Prior to the performance, Mick Jagger and Sheeran joked in a backstage video about performing Fetty Wap’s 2015 hit “Trap Queen,” which Sheeran has previously covered.
In the short clip, posted to Jagger’s official YouTube page, Jagger says he thinks the rap tune will “work in Kansas City.”
“It’s one of the favorite songs of this group, and so we’re bashing away at the piano, it’s been fun,” he jokes.
The band thanked the singer for joining the performance through their official Twitter account, while Ronnie Wood expressed his appreciation through yet another selfie.
“Great show tonight in #KansasCity thanks to @edsheeran for joining us,” he Tweeted.
