Dublin rockers Kodaline join Ed Sheeran on stage in massive surprise for revellers.

Ed Sheeran had his work cut out for him topping his first Friday night show at Croke Park during which he performed on stage with Dublin rockers Kodaline.The girlfriend of Kodaline’s bassist Jason Boland was surprised to be brought on stage for a romantic marriage proposal which was introduced by Ed declaring “Jason, you’ve something to say” Jason’s long-term girlfriend said yes, and the happy couple posed for photos on their way to the after party with Etaoin showing off her brand new sparkler.

Wearing his trademark check shirt, runners, and a slightly more straggly beard, he took to the stage with an explosion of colour behind him. “My name is Ed and you have to sing along, and dance along, and clap along,” he encouraged.The global sensation is set to entertain some 160,000 Irish fans this weekend as he plays Croke Park tonight and tomorrow, but if he had his way he would never leave the Emerald Isle. “Nothing Rock n Roll,” Ed confessed before the massive gig. “I want to catch up with my gran and make cups of tea, not go out and have 15 jager bombs, but that’s not to say that won’t happen either. However, he pulled out all the stops for the second show last night by performing with former The Frames frontman Glen Hansard as well as inviting Kodaline on stage again to recreate Friday night’s magic. Sheeran played two sell-out shows at the Dublin stadium over the weekend and was joined on stage by Kodaline on Friday and Saturday and by Glen Hansard on Saturday. Last week Ed helped Jake Roche propose to little Mix’s Jesy nelson at Manchester Arena and Friday night’s Croke Park crowd included at least one other proposal with Belfast’s Cathal Shortt proposing to girlfriend Leanne Peoples. “Thank you to Kodaline and Glen Hansard for joining me on stage today to sing some tunes.

Just one man and his guitar, but he filled the stage and his songs filled the night sky, along with the screams of thousands of fans as the evening sun shone down. He played the part well at Croker, donning an international rules Irish jersey and singing a couple of ballads with Hansard and Kodaline, including The Auld Triangle. Any concerns that Sheeran’s one-man guitar and loop-pedal set up would be too small to fill the stadium were stamped out on Friday, after he left the first 80,000 swooning.

I think unlike any other country, Irish people have music in their soul and I think that’s because they’re brought up listening to traditional music from a young age.” he said. All my best concerts were in Dublin.” This was all in contrast to Wembley where he had the distinct impression people were waiting to see him fail as he became the first artist to play a solo acoustic show at the stadium. “People were saying: ‘Do you think you can do it?’ And I started to think: ‘Well…I don’t really know’. “[But] the Irish crowd has always been the best.
