Ed Sheeran received the Starlight Award at the 2017 Songwriters Hall of Fame ceremony in New York, called the honor 'humbling.' (June 16)


Wings. Beers. Ed Sheeran?

That’s what patrons of a Hooters in Davenport found at the bar and restaurant Sunday evening — according to Quad Cities television station KWQC — as the English pop star and his crew made a pit stop while traveling between shows in Cleveland and Omaha.

Davenport native Tiffany Coker Hunt saw Sheeran mingling outside Hooters when she arrived at around 10 p.m.. Hunt, 41, said Sheeran and a crew of about thirty were enjoying drinks and appetizers at the bar. She saw the star talk with customers, take selfies and FaceTime a patron’s daughter.

In the report, KWQC said Sheeran and his crew arrived at roughly 9:45 p.m. and left at bar close, around 11 p.m. 

“He didn’t act like he was better than anybody,” Hunt said. “He just acted like he was somebody at the bar. That was really cool. … He’s just so real. That’s the part that I can’t get over. ”

Sheeran’s off-day activities continued into Monday. As reported by the Omaha World-Herald, the star took in two films at Nebraska’s Aksarben Cinema: an advance screening of “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” and summer blockbuster “Dunkirk.” The next night he performed for a crowd of roughly 15,000 at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha.

The “Shape of You” and “Photograph” star kicked off his North American tour in Kansas City on June 29, performing for a sold out crowd of 13,450 people at Wells Fargo Arena on June 30. The singer performed a 100-minute, 19-song set for Des Moines, going to far as to donning a Raygun-made “Ed Moines” shirt during the encore.

Sheeran’s North American tour, in support of No. 1 Billboard album “ ÷ (Divide),” continues in Chicago this weekend and runs through October.
