Ethan Young stole the show at Hudson's Field last night - and he's been speaking to Spire FM.

The 8 year old says he was 'flabbergasted' by what happened to him at the event, when Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson pulled him up on stage.

Ethan's excitement during 'I Predict A Riot' led the singer to hand over his tambourine to him and the rest is history!

Ethan and his family had gone to Salisbury AFD as his dad is an Army veteran, serving with the Rifles.
