5 Celebs Who Spent Their Birthday on Stage

5. Beyoncé’s 34th in Philadelphia


The Queen B definitely celebrated her 34th birthday week with a bang. She spent her actual birthday with her family, but reappeared that weekend looking stunning on stage in Pennsylvania. She changed into several jaw-dropping outfits as she sung her heart out at the Budweiser Made in America Festival.

Imagine being one of the first fans to see the Queen right after her birthday!

4. Shawn Mendes’ 17th on the 1989 Tour

Shawn Mendes’ 17th birthday is definitely one he’ll never forget. When Handwritten was released last year, Shawn’s singing career took off. To top it all off, he opened Taylor Swift’s 1989 Tour on his birthday.

Taylor wasn’t going to let his birthday go by unnoticed, and she got the entire crowd to sing happy birthday to Shawn. Only 17 and living the dream. How lucky!

When asked about the surprise, Shawn said it was “beyond the best feeling I could ever imagine”.

3. Ed Sheeran at the Nokia Theatre

Ed Sheeran’s birthday show at the Nokia Theatre in LA is one for the books. We don’t remember what was the best part: the costumes or the performance.

Ed spent his 22nd birthday wow-ing the crowd with his loop pedal and amazing vocals, while dressed as a pirate. Absolutely amazing. Although it was exciting, we aren’t that surprise tnat Ed could pull off something so cool.


The audience was alive, filled with people of all kinds dressed in different costumes screaming the lyrics to Lego House and The A Team at the top of their lungs. It was fun show, unforgettable for Ed and the fans.

2. Niall’s 21st Birthday at the Rose Bowl

imageOur favorite Irish member of One Direction celebrated his 21st birthday at the Rosebowl in Pasadena. He strutted on stage along with his other bandmates, except he had balloons attached to the end of his guitar.

The fans tried to make it a night to remember for him, and we would say they succeeded. About 90,000 people sang happy birthday to him, following Harry’s hilarious birthday speech.

The stadium lit up to celebrate Niall’s “coming-of-age”.

1. Garth Brooks’ Surprise for Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake may have surprised his fans a couple years back by bringing Garth Brooks to his stage, but Garth managed to surprise Justin when he turned 35 earlier this year in February.

He brought out his phone and gave Justin a special shoutout, before directing the entire crowd to wish Justin a very happy birthday. Of course, Justin was thrilled and replied to Garth’s tweet with lots of love.

Let us know @CelebMix if you remember any other celebrities that shone on stage while celebrating their birthday! Tweet us if you’re celebrating your birthday on a concert as well. We would love to hear from you.
