Rockers Paramore and Lenny Kravitz, English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, alternative icons the Pixies, Creedence Clearwater Revival legend John Fogerty, and rapper Wale are among the acts that will appear at the 2015 Beale Street Music Festival. The 38th edition of fest runs from May 1-3 at Tom Lee Park.

Memphis in May officials confirmed the lineup of 60-plus acts. Among the other notable names are indie-folk act Band of Horses, roots-rockers the Avett Brothers and Wilco, Grammy nominated Irish rocker Hozier, and returning music fest favorites the Flaming Lips.

Others who were also confirmed include singer-songwriters St. Vincent, Ryan Adams and Jenny Lewis, funk, blues, and rap favorites George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Lecrae and G-Eazy, as well as rock acts Cage the Elephant and Breaking Benjamin.

Gary Bongiovanni, editor-in-chief of the concert industry’s leading journal, Pollstar, says that music fest’s effort to place a group of up-and coming acts in the upper echelon of the bill — including the likes of St. Vincent and Hozier — is a positive step. “Sounds like they’ve got a pretty well-rounded lineup this year, with enough new, hipper elements that it should attract a cross-section of people,” noted Bongiovanni.

Congratulations to Ed on his win!

Ed Sheeran has won the award for best British male solo artist at this year’s Brit awards, held at London’s O2 Arena on 25 February. Dedicating his award to his TV plugger Deirdre, the pop singer, guitarist and songwriter outdid fellow nominees George Ezra, Damon Albarn, Sam Smith and Paolo Nutini to take home the award.

Sheeran has enjoyed a year of mammoth commercial success. His second album, X, was released in June 2014 and went on to sell 1.7m copies in the UK – it was not only the bestselling and fastest-selling album of the year, but also shifted about 1m more copies than 2013’s bestseller, Midnight Memories by One Direction.

Sheeran was at the top of the UK’s album chart for 12 consecutive weeks and was named the most-streamed artist worldwide in 2014. Hit singles Sing, featuring Pharrell Williams, and Thinking Out Loud, helped boost Sheeran’s profile last year, making him an almost inescapable presence in pop music.

On the morning of the Brit awards, Sheeran spoke on radio station Capital FM’s Breakfast Show about his preference for performing over receiving industry accolades.

“Performing for me is the bit I really enjoy,” he said, in an interview with DJs Lisa Snowdon and Dave Berry. “The bit I hate is sitting there, waiting to see whether you’ve got validation by the industry that you fund. That’s what I don’t like.”

Previously, Sheeran earned Brit award nominations and wins in 2012. That year, he walked away with best British breakthrough act and best British male solo artist, and also got nominations for best British single, for The A Team, and British album of the year for his debut, +.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Will there be anymore shows added?
Stuart (Ed’s manager) has said that no more dates will be added onto this tour.

If I want the best tickets, should I buy during presale or wait for general sales?
I would not be worried if you’re getting the best tickets, this tour has been selling out VERY fast and you’ll be lucky to get any tickets at all. They generally try to have a variety of tickets during all sales.

Is it worth it to wait outside to meet Ed?
It’s honestly up to you, but as the shows get bigger it’s less likely he’ll come out. Especially if the venues have a no loitering policy.

Is Stubhub a reliable source for tickets?
A lot of the time tickets from stubhub work, however Ed is doing ticketless tickets for a lot of this tour and from experience those can not be transferred. I’d suggest staying away from 3rd party ticket sellers.

I can’t find where to sign up for Ed’s mailing list/fanclub, help?
You will see a box on the left side of EdSheeran.com under the site’s navigation (menu).

No more dates will be added, but there may be some shows apart from the Multiply tour like radio concerts with various guests.

On the latest Billboard 200 albums chart, Taylor Swift’s 1989 collected an eighth nonconsecutive week atop the list, moving 244,000 equivalent units in the week ending Jan. 4, according to Nielsen Music. (That figure was comprised of 172,000 in pure album sales, with the rest made up of track equivalent albums and streaming equivalent albums.)

The Billboard 200 chart measures multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).

Let’s take a closer look at some of the action on the chart:

— Ed Sheeran, x – No. 3 — Ed Sheeran’s x vaults 7-3 with 83,000 units (down 26 percent). It is the album’s highest rank since its second week on the chart (dated July 19, 2014) when it fell 1-2. More than half of his album’s overall unit total is comprised of SEA and TEA (mostly TEA, where his track equivalent total is 37,000 for the week).
