Ed Sheeran @ Glastonbury 2017

Everyone’s favourite ginger Hip-Hop rock-star Ed Sheeran took to the stage tonight both debuting and headlining the main stage at Glastonbury tonight. Considering that this man was a complete unknown more than 5 years ago he’s come a long way. He Just comes on stage full of energy and is just electrifying to watch as he opened his set with Castle On The Hill. A one-man band Ed treated the crowds to his hit songs including Bloodstream, Galway Girl, Lego House, Eraser and Take It Back/Superstition during his made great use of his rap skills and reminded everyone why he’s a one-man band star in his own right. Seriously this guy’s talents know no bounds, also it’s just him on-stage. The music continued with more songs such as I’m A Mess, Photograph in which he and the crowd sang together. For one of his songs, Nancy Mulligan, he invited a small folk quartette which was really good. Had a an Irish-folk feel to it. Ed continued his set with the incredible Thinking Out Loud, Sing and Shape Of You. He ended both his set and the night with his self-written debut hit You Need Me I Don’t You after by which point the adrenaline was just oozing from all areas. Seriously, Ed ,dude, promise us that’ll you’ll return to Glastonbury at some point. YOU ROCK!!! Live link courtesy of Huw Stephen, Jo Whiley and Shaun Keaveny
Considering that this was it debut it was amazing, electrifying and pure magic, and it’s safe to say we all witnessed something purely incredible. Even whilst wearing the infamous rainbow flag.
Also Barry Gibb, the eldest of the Gibb brothers and of The Bee Gees performed to a massive crowd during the infamous Legends Slot. He played their infamous hit track Stayin Alive which is guaranteed to get the entire crowd moving, even the stage crew took to the photography pit and joined in.
Sadly there won’t be any Glastonbury next due to it’s fallow year, so see you all again in 2019

Ed Sheeran, man on a (musical) mission

As of this week British artist Ed Sheeran has managed to smash a completely new bunch of records all with his current album Divide (the divide symbol), here’s how

. It’s the fastest selling artist by a man, ever

. All songs from the album have gone into the Top 20

. This now makes him the 3rd fastest selling artist behind Adele and Oasis

Not bad at all for someone who hit the big time with only his second album, X. This is why I’ve always referred to him as the second male-Adele (Sam Smith being the other). On another note if we’re keeping to mathematics as album names some insiders have suggested = and -. Or as some others’ have suggested TT (pie)

Good on you Sheeran, let’s see how long you can keep the charts de-Cowellised

 

Ed Sheeran on The Graham Norton Show

Currently watching Ed Sheeran perform his new single ‘Castle On The Hill’ on The Graham Norton Show on BBC1 right now. What a single, what a comeback and You Need Me, I Don’t Need You seems so long ago now. Just Ed, his guitar and voice and that’s pretty much all you need, seriously, what more do you need. I like how the song switches from slow-pace in the verses to fast verses fast-pace on the chorus. Castle On The Hill is on his new album, Divide (the actual divide symbol). Also in a twist of revelation there’s a guy on the Red Chair called James who just so happens to have been his best mate a school. What are the chances of that!!
