As it turns out, Ed Sheeran is a BIG Twin Peaks guy.
But, it’s probably not the reason you’d suspect.
If you’re not familiar, Twin Peaks is a chain “brestaurant” in the same vein as Tilted Kilt or Hooters, where the scantily clad servers help middle age dads relive their glory years back when young, attractive women would give them the time of day.
Beer and bar food, the menu is generally nothing to write home about, but for a global superstar like Ed Sheeran, it’s the kind of place where he can go and drink a beer in peace, instead of being mobbed by his millions and millions of adoring fans.
The clientele at Twin Peaks are more focused on, well… all the “twin peaks” in the room and no so much the British pop star that their 8-year-old daughter is listening to.
On the Bobby Bones Show, Luke got to talking about his rising fame and whether or not he can go out in public without being pestered by fans nonstop. Luke said that it really just depended on the place and you go and you have to be smarter about it (AKA go places where a lot of your fans don’t go).
So when Ed Sheeran took him to Twin Peaks thinking it wouldn’t be a madhouse, he was very, very wrong…
He detailed the hilarious story:
“The first time I ever hung out with Ed Sheeran was at the Twin Peaks in Brentwood.
He had hit me up and was like, ‘hey let’s hang out,’ and it’s where he told me he was. I was like… ‘Um, ok….’
So I’m on the way, it’s me and my wife, and I was like, ‘Hey man, just checking that we’re going… here?’ And he was like ‘yeah, yeah dude we’re here come on.’
And all of the sudden these people start coming up and coming up and coming up and he was like, ‘dude, I’m really sorry nobody ever bothers me here.’
And I was like, ‘dude, you’ve taken me into the beehive.’ Like if I took you to a wine bar and was all like, ‘dude, no one ever bothers me at this wine bar, but then you showed up, it would be different.’
The only thing that would be worse would be like ‘hey man, do you wanna go sit in the stands at the NASCAR race?'”
Unfortunately for Luke Combs… the Twin Peaks clientele are same folks that pack arenas every night when he’s on tour.
Luke Combs Performs “Dive” With Ed Sheeran
Luke Combs brought out one of England’s own during his show across the pond in London earlier this year.
At the last show of C2C fest, he brought pop superstar Ed Sheeran out on stage to sing Sheeran’s hit, “Dive.”
Luke has a history of covering this song and even recorded it for a Spotify Sessions back in 2018. So if those two every got in the same room together, you know they were gonna have to have a go at it.
“Dive” was written by Ed along with Benny Blanco and Julia Michaels, it was included on his third studio album ÷ (Divide), eventually peaking at #8 on the UK Singles Chart.
Overall, C2C Festival is definitely one to put on the bucket list. Spanning three countries in Europe, taking place in London, Glasgow and Dublin… it’s a once in a lifetime experience for a country music fan.
