RUMOURS are swirling this evening that legendary Irish singer Christy Moore will join Ed Sheeran on stage in Croke Park tonight.

  • Go To

Sheeran will perform his second Croke Park concert tonight to 80,000 fans.

In last night's gig band Kodaline joined the singer on stage to perform.

In a surprise for revellers, the band sang their hit ‘All I Want’, getting one of the biggest cheers of the night.

However tonight gig-goers could be in for another musical treat, as Sheeran could be joined by the legendary Christy Moore.

Independent.ie understands that Sheeran, who is a huge fan of traditional Irish music, will sing with Moore tonight.

Plans were in motion for U2 to make a cameo appearance at one of the gigs, however despite the eagerness of both acts schedule clashes meant it couldn't happen.

Last night Sheeran tweeted: 'Bloody hell that was mental".

He later said: "Thanks you Ireland".

Far from the rock'n'roll lifestyle, the singer has been spending time with his Irish grandmother during his visit here.
