Ed Sheeran surprises NZ Hobbiton Tour with an epic acoustic performance of 'I See Fire'

“I would never recover!”

Ed Sheeran performed an impromptu acoustic performance for tourists visiting Middle Earth.

Ed stopped by the Hobbiton tourist attraction in Matamata earlier this week to do a magical performance of his 2013 tune ‘I See Fire’ from none other than the film of the same year ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’.

In a post to TikTok, the official @hobbitontours account shared a clip of the singer's performance along with the caption: “We had an unexpected guest at The Green Dragon Inn tonight…”

Also posting the clip to their Instagram story the company wrote: “Guests of our Evening Banquet Tour just had a visit from a very special guest.”

Many fans shared their excitement in the comment section for anyone that was lucky enough to experience Ed’s beautiful performance - I for one am extremely jealous.

One commenter wrote that she “would literally sob if [she] were in that room with him.”

Another agreed writing: “I would never recover!”

“Being in that room must have felt magical,” wrote a third.

This isn’t the only fitting collab Ed has found himself in during his NZ stop of his 2023 Mathematics Tour.

Ed has also partnered with our good friends at Whittaker's to create a limited edition  'Ed Block' chocolate.

The ‘Ed Block’ is Whittaker’s classic Five Roll Refined Creamy Milk chocolate with a special edition label and a specifically printed Ed selfie that Ed told the company to use.

After being gifted a block of the chocolate, Ed Sheeran suggested to Whittaker's that they should donate some of the limited blocks for a fundraiser towards Auckland's flood recovery.

This is why we all love Ed here in NZ - If you want to read more about the Whittakers fundraiser click HERE!
