Watch Skrillex and Ed Sheeran play an impromptu DJ set at an Irish pub in Chicago

Tragic dancing ensued...

Skrillex and Ed Sheeran performed an impromptu DJ set at Chicago's Five Roses pub this past weekend.

Sheeran had just performed at the city's Allstate arena on the Friday evening (15th September) and after the show, the man of the people went in search of some much-needed downtime.

But this is Ed Sheeran after all, so rather than hitting up a fancy restaurant or pigging out on room service in his lavish hotel suite, he instead headed out into the city and ended up at Irish watering hole The Five Roses pub.

He wasn't on his own though, no no. He brought Skrillex along for a boozy night on the town as the two superstars — who've been friends for a while now — played an impromptu 90 minute DJ set, footage of which you can be seen below.

The pub's in-house DJ, Alex Pearce, was kind enough to step aside as the makeshift duo gave the locals a night to remember.

Skrillex, as you might expect, was manning the decks, whilst Sheeran was on the mic, hyping up tracks and generally letting his hair down.

In other Skrillex news, the dubstep producer has just released a tropically-hued track alongside Damian Marley and Ty Dolla $ign.
