They discussed how to execute the live "Million Miles Away" rendition before hitting the stage to play the 2001 hit, with the "Thinking Out Loud" musician singing and playing guitar. Alongside the clip, Sheeran wrote a heartfelt caption about his admiration for the band.

"The first album I ever bought was the @offspring - Conspiracy of One," revealed Sheeran. "I used to pretend to be in their band in the mirror and sing along to the album when I was 9, mostly to their song 'Million Miles Away' as it was the first song of theirs I heard."
