Review: Ed Sheeran at the Capital FM Arena
MUSICIAN Ed Sheeran added a touch of horror when he performed in front of a sellout crowd at Nottingham's Capital FM Arena.
Before the Hallowe'en show, the A Team singer had tweeted menacingly: "Tonight Matthew, I'm gonna be Chucky. Wanna Play?"
And fans were delighted when the normally laid back crooner turned up on stage in frightening make-up mimicking the famous murderous puppet from the movie Child's Play.
In what the singer himself dubbed his biggest headline gig to date, Sheeran described the experience in Nottingham as "awesome."

At one point the crowd watched in transfixed silence as he performed the song Wayfaring Stranger without any musical accompaniment or even a microphone.
There was also a 17-minute version of You Need Me, I Don't Need You complete with rapping and an extended guitar solo.
Sheeran commented afterwards: "Never thought singing acapella without a microphone would work in an arena. I was proved wrong today."
Tweeting pictures of the crowd throughout the performance, he commented: "I'm buzzzziiing."
Meanwhile, ecstatic fans also took to Twitter to share their enthusiasm.
"Best. Night. Of. My. Life," commented @smil3ychl03.
"What a night it was. When you sang without a mic - jaw dropping," said @joeforro.
