After his Glastonbury performance over the weekend, Ed Sheeran took to Twitter to defend himself against the accusations that he used a backing track.
During Sheeran’s live performances, the singer uses loop pedals. It allows him to record on the fly song sections that can then be looped for him to play over them.
Unfortunately, some fans thought the Shape of You singer was just using a backing track. Sheeran took to Twitter early Monday morning to set the record straight.
Never thought I'd have to explain it, but everything I do in my live show is live, it's a loop station, not a backing track. Please google x

During his closing performance at the Glastonbury Festival, Sheeran got funky with his setlist. He performed fan favourites like Castle On the Hill and Sing, and surprised everyone with a mash-up of Stevie Wonder’s Superstition and Bill Withers’ Ain’t No Sunshine.
Sheeran closed the set by proudly displaying an LGBTQ flag onstage.
