Ed Sheeran surprised fans at his Ford Field concert by bringing Eminem on stage for a surprise two-song performance during his two-hour, 20-minute show. It was Eminem's first public appearance since November and his first on-stage pop-up in Detroit since 2016. The show was attended by around 65,000 fans, many of whom were excited to see their first glimpse of Eminem in-person. Rumors of Eminem's appearance circulated among fans, as they are semi-frequent collaborators.

The demographics of the concert meant that for many, it may have been their first big concert experience period, and it's going to be a tough one to live up to. During the encore, Sheeran sported a Detroit Lions jersey with Mathers on the back. He also spoke of his Eminem fandom.
