Verge got to witness the greatness that is Mr Ed Sheeran live at the O2, and we could not wait to share it with our readers!
Lucky for us we got to score amazing seats for Sheeran’s ‘Divide’ album tour, which did not disappoint, not like he ever could!
As the O2 began to fill up with thousands of excited fans of all ages, and we prepared ourselves for what was sure to be an epic night. It still amazes us that he was able to perform to an arena of hysterical fans, but still make it personal enough for each and every one of us. There was no flashy dancers or distractions; it was just him completely solo which did nothing but captivate us, so much so that we wished we had popcorn (but to be completely honest, we probably would have dropped it from swaying along!).
As the fans went completely banana’s for the hits, we couldn’t help but admire him after he spoke about his journey to stardom, whilst sharing some personal songs with us all. Of course we loved getting close and emotional, but we could stop ourselves from standing up and screaming along from the depths of our lungs when it came to the Sheeran classics.
Couples, friends and even perfect strangers couldn’t resist the power of the Sheeran ballads; and of course he performed them all, especially our favourite ‘Thinking Out Loud’. As well as perfectly transferring from melodic flows to sweet harmonies, we must admit that he captured our hearts that night. We will definitely be back for more, we’ll be sure to be first in line!
