Daniel O’Donnell has revealed he has a massive fan of a certain singer after catching him live for the first time.
The Donegal singer was among the 42,000 fans who saw Ed Sheeran performing in Boucher Road in Belfast on Wednesday night.
And now Daniel is fully signed up to the red head’s fan club, saying: “It was brilliant. It was mighty. Ed is some boy, him with his guitar. He was talking on stage but it was like he was sitting in a room with a few people but there were 40,000 people there.”
The 56-year-old admitted he was inspired to see Ed because of how the singer/songwriter came across in his many TV and radio appearances.
Daniel said: “I don’t get to many concerts and I had never seen Ed before. I just like the way he portrayed himself anytime I seen him.
“And I wasn’t disappointed, he came across on stage like a really nice lad.”
The country star revealed how a young concert-goer had gave him free chips when he got peckish at the pop concert.
Daniel said: “The Aikens invited me and everyone was so nice to me. They were nearly carrying me on their shoulder.
“I want to thank the young man who bought me chips. I saw a guy eating chips and when I asked him where he got them from, he came back a few minutes later with three bags for myself and Siobhan (his stepdaughter) and Gavin (her husband).”
The Strictly star also thanked a young man working in a local garage who had given him a parking space.Tags:
