Ed Sheeran's 'Mathematics (+–=÷×) Tour' is the gift that keeps on giving. 

The 32-year-old surprised concertgoers in Detroit, Michigan (USA), at the weekend by bringing out Eminem as a guest artist. 

The 'Perfect' hitmaker was performing a cover of 'Lose Yourself' when suddenly 'Slim Shady' himself appeared onstage. 

The crowd went crazy as Eminem took over from Ed and rapped to his 2002 hit. 

Ed shared a clip from the performance on his Instagram page. 

"Detroit. What a moment," he captioned the video.

Ed's fans couldn't stop raving about the moment. 

"Em & Ed could actually be a good duo. Just saying," one Instagram user commented. 

Another fan added: "This was absolutely fantastic to see live. 60,000 + people literally lost their minds simultaneously- me included."  

As unlikely as the collaboration might seem, Ed has worked with Eminem in the past. 

Ed co-wrote and featured on the rapper's 2017 song, 'River'. The track featured on Eminem's ninth studio album, 'Revival'.

Ed Sheeran Mathematics Tour 

Ed kicked off 'The Mathematics (+–=÷×)  Tour' in Ireland in April 2022 - several months after he released his fifth album, '=(Equals)'. 

The 88-show, which is expected to end in September 2023,  also features new music from Ed's latest album, '- (Subtract)'.

'Subtract' became the UK's fastest-selling album of 2023 in less than a week of its release in May. 

The album's lead single, 'Eyes Closed', is currently at number 24 on the ECR Top 40 with Danny brought to you by CTM.

Ed has described 'Subtract' as one of his most personal albums to date. He worked on the album while overcoming mental health issues and the death of two of his friends - Jamal Edwards and Shane Warne.

"I felt like I was drowning, head below the surface, looking up but not being able to break through for air. As an artist I didn’t feel like I could credibly put a body of work into the world that didn’t accurately represent where I am and how I need to express myself at this point in my life,” he wrote on Instagram.

Tune in to the ECR Top 40 with Danny Guselli, every Saturday morning from 10am to 2pm.
