This comes after Ed performed the final UK show of his x tour at Fusion Festival with Vimto on Friday.
He headlined the festival in Birmingham, England, after Justin Bieber pulled out of the slot, and played a 90-minute set, which was his only UK festival performance of the year.
He told the crowd: "This is my final UK show of this summer and this is the only festival show I'm doing!"
The fiery-haired superstar performed a flurry of his own hits which he mixed up with other classic tracks such as Feeling Good, Superstition and I Can't Help Falling In Love With You.
However, the Thinking Out Loud hitmaker - who ended his set with the Pharrell Williams-produced track Sing - was in for a surprise following one track after witnessing a brawl take place in the crowd.
Halfway through his set, he said: "I saw a fight break out in that. I think that's the first time there's been a fight break out in my show in a long time."
