Ed Sheeran talks about Eminem with Nardwuar




In a new interview with Nardwuar, Ed Sheeran shared what he had to go through to get Eminem to take the stage with him at Detroit’s Ford Field back in July, where he surprised his hometown audience by performing hits like “Lose Yourself” and “Stan” with the British superstar.

Nardwuar: When you are on stage, do you ever get seasick on stage?

Ed Sheeran: No but when I played with Eminem, I tried to get him to get on the revolve, I think it was a bit too much. I’ve been playing on it like 100 shows so I’m sort of used to it but it’s definitely different for people.

Nardwuar: How hard is it to get Eminem on stage?

Ed Sheeran: “It was pretty difficult. I went over to play the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with him… 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. And he found out that I’ve done that so he was like, ‘Anything you ever need,’ and I just said, then and there, ‘I’m coming to Detroit,’ so let’s do that.”

Nardwuar: Were you worried that he wouldn’t show up? “I was there in Detroit for a couple of days as well. He let me use his studio to record some stuff, so I sort of knew it was going to happen. I gave him the out. Whenever I perform with people, I always say, ‘You can cancel last minute if you want,’ so there’s never any pressure.”
