Ed Sheeran had to stop his gig in Cardiff twice in order to go to the toilet.
The singer was performing at Principality Stadium last night (June 22), when he told the audience he “needed a pee”.
The first time he stopped the gig was after his performance of ‘Galway Girl’. “I’ve been gigging since I was 14 and I’ve never done that,” he said upon his first return. “And now I do it in front of 60,000 people.”
Then, three songs later in the middle of performing ‘Photograph’, he needed the loo again. The 60,000 sold-out crowd waited patiently for the 27-year-old to return. See some reactions below.

Day 3 of the Ed Sheeran gig complete. Personal highlight was when he had to take his Guitar off in a hurry slap bang in the middle of a song to run to the toilet. Then on his return pick up the guitar and just start singing again as if the fans didn’t notice the 5 min silence lol

Last night’s show was Sheeran’s penultimate gig of the UK leg of his Divide world tour. He plays his fourth consecutive show at Principality Stadium tonight (June 24), marking him as the first artist to have four shows in a row at the venue. You can grab tickets here.
Earlier this week, Sheeran created a life-sized Lego model of his own head and donated it to a local charity.
He was praised by staff at St Elizabeth Hospice for his “incredible” donation, where he is also said to have given away a record player, skateboard, headphones and other items to the charity in his hometown of Framlingham, Suffolk.
The hospice’s spokeswoman Helen Owen told the BBC that the singer has been “really generous”, explaining that “every now and again he has a clearout”.
“As Framlingham is his local shop, he thinks of us. Normally it is a few jumpers and Hoax T-shirts he wears on tour, which are great, but this time we got the head,” she added.
Speaking of Sheeran’s LEGO head, Owen said it’s “really lovely” the model was “of him, [and] made by him”.
