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
