The circumstances surrounding Khalid’s accident are currently unknown. Sheeran didn’t say much about what happened to Khalid, other than that he’s fine. He even chose to stand in for Khalid by performing a stripped-down version of his most recent album, Subtract, which came out in May. Sycamore, which is not normally on his main set, was one of the songs he played for the audience. The song was inspired by his wife Cherry Seaborn‘s cancer diagnosis while she was pregnant with their second child. Later, he told the crowd in a video posted to social media,

Usually when I start playing, it’s like pitch-black and now I get to see everyone. It’s awesome. This is pretty fun. I kind of feel like when you’re the main act, there’s a bunch of pressure because people have paid to see you but I feel like when you’re the opening act you’re sort of like, ‘Let’s have fun. Let’s play songs.

Similarly, Ed Sheeran made a point of thinking about Khalid during his initial set. He wished him luck and all the best, saying, “I just want to say, before I introduce this next song, that I really hope Khalid gets well soon and that he’ll be joining us in Boston.”

At the time, Ed Sheeran provided fans an unexpected pleasure, albeit in bad circumstances, by performing more of his own songs before his officially scheduled set. He informed the large crowd that Khalid, best known for songs like Beautiful People and Young Dumb & Broke, is on the recovery. Later, he stepped up to the microphone considerably earlier than billed and announced, ‘[Khalid] was in a car accident this week. He’s recovering and we wish him the best.’ The Thinking Out Loud singer then joked,

If people don’t know I was going to be the opening act today, people are going to walk up to me today like, “This show isn’t what I thought it was. I thought there’d be more fireworks”.
