Ed Sheeran pokes fun of himself as he shares video of himself tripping and falling to his knees on stage in Japan

Ed Sheeran opened the latest leg of his massive +–=÷× Tour (pronounced Mathematics) in Japan on Saturday at the Kyocera Dome in Osaka.

As the Shape of You singer, 32, bounded up the stairs to the stage with his guitar in hand he tripped and fell to his knees.

Ed – who showed off his tattoos in a series of shirtless photos earlier this month –  recovered quickly and shot the cameraman under the stage a smile as he began to strum his guitar for the audience waiting on his performance. 

The singer, who goes under the name @TeddysPhotos on Instagram, shared the video to the social media platform and captioned it: ‘Styled it out.’

Calum Scott, 35, who is the opening act for Sheeran’s tour, didn’t see the fall from where he was seated.

‘I was at the back of the stadium with the highest view and I didn’t see it so, well styled mate,’ he wrote on social media. 

Saturday marked the first show of current leg of the two-year long Mathematics tour. He’s playing two nights in Osaksa before a show at the Tokyo Dome on January 31. 

He will remain in Asia through March, performing in Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia and Mumbai.

Ed plans to fly home between each of his shows in Asia to be with his wife Cherry Seaborn and their two daughters – Lyra, three, and Jupiter, 21 months.

Calum told the Daily Star: ‘He’s coming and going back home from Asia to be able to see his kids every week.

‘He’s a really family and friends-driven kind of artist. That’s unreal jet lag though. I don’t know how he’ll cope with it – a lot of melatonin!’

This summer he will crisscross the European continent with stops in Germany, Italy, Spain and eastern Europe.

Meanwhile Calum, who rose to fame on Britain’s Got Talent in 2015, said that he has a built a ‘bromance’ with the Thinking Out Loud hitmaker.

In an interview last week, Calum said that the pair plan to try out new cuisines and play XBox together during their time on the road. 

He told The Sun’s Bizarre column: ‘Ed came to see me before the first show. We just sat chatting about normal stuff. 

‘We will have a lot more time on the tour and he is a big foodie like me, so we are going to try and get out for dinner at some point,’ he said.

Calum added: ‘I’ve brought my Xbox too so we can shoot some bad guys on Call Of Duty.’
