The rapper’s ‘Astroworld’ tour touched down in the UK last night (July 16) for a one-off show at London’s O2 Arena. Scott performed a 27-track set at the venue, which included cuts from his acclaimed 2018 album.

Towards the end of the show, Sheeran joined Scott on a colourfully-lit stage to perform their new collaboration live for the first time. One fan described the moment as “unreal” while another hailed Sheeran’s “amazing” vocals.

Last week, the Travis Scott-featuring song’s official video was shared online — featuring the two artists exploring classic film sets from the past.
In a track-by-track review of the new LP, NME said of ‘Antisocial’: “Sheeran shows a slightly darker side on this trap-influenced collaboration with Travis Scott. “On something, on something, on something, I wanna riot,” he sings, presumably implying he’s fuelling this particular night out with more than a packet of crisps and a pint. It’s not entirely convincing, but you won’t care when the killer chorus hits.”
Meanwhile, Sheeran is scheduled to play a series of UK live dates next month to wrap up his extensive European tour. He’ll perform two gigs at Leeds Roundhay Park on August 16-17, before ending with a homecoming run of concerts at Ipswich’s Chantry Park on August 23-26.
