But Sheeran, 30, sets the record straight and explains that he’s not playing, but singing.

He also suggests he and Beckham could team up for a duet, before the other line suddenly goes dead.

Sheeran then tells fans: “I’m going to be playing some old songs you hopefully know, and I’m going to be playing one brand new song that you definitely don’t. 

"Don’t miss it!”

Earlier this week he shared a video on Instagram showing him and his friend Courteney Cox playing music together.
