Nick Smith, coventrytelegraph.net:

Ed Sheeran kicked off Saturday’s Radio 1 Big Weekend with a bang, leading the thousands strong crowd in a singalong. In his own words, he was there to ‘warm up’ the crowd and if anyone is able to do that it’s one of the biggest pop stars in the world who can easily sell out stadiums.

He tore through a set of his biggest hits, something which he promised in an interview with BBC Radio 1 before taking the stage. He opened up the set with a largely acoustic version of Shivers, before going into Overpass Graffiti and Castle on the Hill.

He then got nostalgic, recounting the time he first played a Radio 1 Big Weekend, which saw him take to the main stage not as a headliner, but below megastars Jay-Z, Kasabian and Nicki Minaj on the bill. He said: “I played my first ever Radio 1 Big Weekend 10 years ago in 2012. It had basically come after a long time of gigging around, releasing music and stuff like that and there was one song which caught the interest of a lot of people which basically opened up every door for me which I would love to sing for you 10 years later.”

This led into a performance of the song which brought him to stardom, The A Team, which brought a huge singalong from the Coventry crowd, before going into 2step which saw him bring out rapper Potter Payper for a guest appearance. He then went straight into another singalong anthem, performing Perfect, in which he asked the crowd to light up their phones in the middle of the day.

He then tore into Bloodstream as his opening set drew towards his climax, as he saved some of the biggest hits for last. Shape of You followed next, drawing one of the biggest crowd interactions of his set.

It’s unsure if a tech issue came about after that, with Sheeran noting something needed to be set up for his final song. If there was a glitch, he handled it like the pro he is by performing a rendition of Thinking Out Loud before his final song.

He noted that he didn’t want to overrun his time slot and quickly launched into Bad Habits to close his set. Packing 10 hits into a 45 minute set, Ed definitely got the crowd pumped up for the rest of the weekend.
