Ed Sheeran has never shied away with collaborating with other musicians. In fact, it is those same celebrity friendships (with the likes of Taylor Swift and One Direction), along with the hits, of course, that have helped catapult the crooner into the spotlight across the globe.
It comes as no surprise, then, that the singer joined perennial rock stars the Rolling Stones on stage for a performance of "Beast of Burden," from the Stones' 1978 album Some Girls.
The rockers were in Kansas City as part of their Zip Code tour. Ed is also in the middle of his own, mostly-sold out X tour, set to finish at the end of July in Dublin.
And taking a quick look at his Instagram, Ed was just as star struck by the group as any other fan.
"Learning how to be led astray," nice guy Ed wrote as a caption for a photograph of the singer and ultimate bad boy and hard rocker Keith Richards.
He also got a solid selfie in with the group, referring to the group as "these ladz." Will their collaboration jump from the stage to record? Knowing Ed, we'll just have to wait and see.
