Ed Sheeran Rocks Over 240,000 at Wembley

The weekend just gone would have been a memorable one for everyone’s favourite ginger man – Ed Sheeran. After much anticipation, he played one of the country’s most iconic stadiums, Wembley, over 3 nights – performing to over 80,000 people on each night.

Fans were treated to songs from Sheeran including hits like ‘Lego House’, ‘A Team’ and ‘You Need Me’, as well as other tracks from his last two albums.

Sheeran recently became the first artist in the UK to have the same song last a whole year in the UK Singles Chart Top 40 with ‘Thinking Out Loud’ – a huge achievement. Since he released the ‘A Team’ back in 2011, he has stolen the hearts of many with his love songs and sparkling acoustic talent, which has seen him become one of the most recognised artists in the world today.

Those attending the concert on the Friday night were treated to a performance from Sir Elton John who joined Sheeran on stage. Together, they performed ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’ and ‘Afire Love’ – making for a very special occasion to kick off the three gigs.

Elton John is linked to Sheeran through his management company, which he owns, and the pair had previously performed together at the Grammy Awards in 2013.

Sheeran was said to have commanded the stage on his own for two hours, without the use of pyrotechnics or any grand spectacle. With the addition of lighting, he and his acoustic guitar managed to woo the British audience, with his gigs going down incredibly well across social media, making him the top trender on Twitter over the course of the weekend.
