Saturday night I had the pleasure of getting down to Brixton Academy to watch Ed Sheeran’s sold out show. It was amazing listening and watching the crowd follow his every command and gesture.
Here was a guy I first saw perform in a small venue in Farringdon now holding down a stage I’d seen the likes of D’angelo, Maxwell and Badu all superstars and I’ve no doubt in the coming years his worldwide appeal will match theirs and potentially surpass. Speaking to him after the show it was a pleasure to see it hadn’t all gone to his head. He was still the same genuine fun loving and humble ginger kid I had met a couple of years ago.
His latest video that he dropped after the show “Drunk” gives you a slight insight into his current world in the limelight rocking stages and crowds that he was always meant to and what his live show is like now on the bigger stage. Funniest moment is a shot of Ed in hoodie followed by lyricists XO and Mikill Pane on either side looking like his henchman jokes.
If you haven’t seen him yet buy that ticket its money very well spent and get your hands on the + album now.
