New Delhi:

As a crowd of 10,000 gathered on Sunday at the Jio Gardens, Bandra Kurla Complex, dressed in blue kurta Ed Sheeran set the stage on fire.

Sheeran came for a second live concert in India, after 2015, starting his performance with Castle on the Hill, as part of Asia leg of his tour for his album "Divide".

The stadium reverberated with the rock band-influenced guitar anthem by the singer, who went on to sing tracks such as "Eraser", "Bloodstream" and "I See Fire", from the 201 film "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" soundtrack.

In a 90-minute performance, Sheeran sang over 10 songs from his albums 'Divide', five from 'Multiply' and two from his album 'Plus', sweating and drinking water after every few songs.

Towards the end of the concert, Sheeran returned to the stage, wearing a blue T-shirt that read "India", and sang hits such as, "Shape of You" and "You Need Me".

"India: you are always special and this night is magical. Thank you all so much. Hope you all are having a good evening? Pleasure to be back in India. I want the crowd to be involved in my show ... sing as loud as you can, you can dance out here... I want to see you all dancing, singing and I am going to give you all", Sheeran told the crowd.

Before Mumbai, Sheeran visited Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok as part of the Asia tour.
