Ed Sheeran and Eminem together on stage can be a big bang! However, Ed Sheeran had to go through some insane travel schedule to get hold of Slim Shady. But it was worth the effort. It was on July 15, 2023, that the ‘Photograph’ singer surprised his fans with a performance by Eminem at the Detroit Concert.

Ed Sheeran Had It ‘Pretty Difficult’ To Get Eminem On Stage
In his latest conversation with Nardwuar, Ed Sheeran opened up about how he got Eminem to share the stage with him in Detroit. It seems like Ed Sheeran had it “pretty difficult” to get Eminem. The ‘Shape Of You’ singer played at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Slim Shady.
“I [had] basically flown off on a day off because I was shooting 14 music videos, back to back, and I had one day off in between. That [day off] was the day of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. So I got on a plane that night, flew, played, got on a plane that night and then flew back,” the British singer recounted the incident from 2022.
The duo sang ‘Stan’ for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. “He was like, ‘Anything you ever need,’ and I just said, then and there, ‘I’m coming to Detroit,’ so let’s do that,” the ‘Bad Habits’ singer recalled. That’s how the rapper took over the stage in Detroit.

He let me use his studio to record some stuff, so I sort of knew it was going to happen,” the singer said when asked if he was doubtful that Eminem would ditch. However, the English artist is always prepared for it. The artist gives all freedom to co-artists to chicken out even at the last minute.
