Singer Passenger has completed his busking tour of the UK, which included a stop at Belfast's Victoria Square on Sunday.

Hundreds of Belfast shoppers were treated to a performance by the Let Her Go hitmaker, who was helping to promote the homeless charity The Big Issue.

The singer - real name Michael Rosenberg - drew a huge crowd in Belfast on Sunday, performing his best known hits, and also performed outside Dublin's Gaiety Theatre on Saturday.

The busking tour brought him all over the UK, including stops in London, Manchester and Glasgow, with the time and location of the gigs revealed on his Facebook page and

The tour completed in Edinburgh on Wednesday.

Speaking about his performances, the singer told "I used to busk for about 14 people, so to hear so many people singing along to my song in the street is really special."

In his travel diary for the website, he said of his Belfast gig: "Sometimes you find there are so many hoops to jump through with these things, but the manager couldn't have been more helpful.

"We set up right in the middle, with all these stairs and balconies all around, and it looked wicked. It felt like one of these multi-theatre gigs, but in a busy shopping centre."
