Ed Sheeran may just be the busiest guy in show biz. The “Photograph” crooner was due for a month-long break from the road in between legs of his worldwide X Tour, which picks back up in the U.S. in September. But this afternoon (Aug. 6), Ed tweeted that he’s spontaneously added a new U.K. show to his tour this month — a performance at Wembley Arena — to graciously fill in for one of his “mates.”
Apparently, Ed isn’t the kind of celeb to namedrop, so we’ll do it for him: that “mate” in question is none other than Justin Bieber, who ambiguously cancelled his headlining performance at Birmingham’s Fusion Festival, which benefits youth charity The Prince’s Trust, earlier this week.
Ever the grateful friend, Justin tweeted a sweet message thanking Ed and assuring his British Beliebers that they’re in for a treat when Ed takes the stage on Aug. 28.
On Tuesday, Justin further expressed how “deeply disappointed” he is to miss the festival, assuring fans he’d make it up to them.
Coincidentally, Justin’s highly anticipated next single “What Do You Mean?” is slated to drop Aug. 28, so we’re thinking even his British fans will be more than happy to forgive and forget once they hear the Ariana Grande-approved track.
