Tune into the MTV Video Music Awards tonight at 9/8c to see if Ed takes home the moon man for Best Male Video (Sing)!

I want to attempt to do a small recap of the show even if it’s just videos, videos & setlist changes. This is a little late as I’m out of town and my internet is limited. Please feel free to tweet or e-mail your videos. I do prefer that they be of good sound quality and not shaky the whole time visually.

Ed Sheeran’s singalong aimed to entertain — and did | Concert review

Ed Sheeran gave his fans exactly what they wanted during his sold-out show at WaMu Theater Thursday, Aug. 21  — a massive singalong.

“I want you to wake up tomorrow and still be singing,” said the 23-year-old British singer-songwriter as he skipped offstage after a nearly two hour set.

The crowd was still singing his hit single “Sing.”

For quieter songs such as “One,” “Tenerife Sea” and “Little Bird,” the audience could clearly be heard echoing Sheeran’s vocals. On his hits “Drunk,” “Give Me Love” and “The A Team,” he asked for participation and received a tidal wave of response.

Sometimes the crowd got carried away.

After the first chorus of fan favorite “Lego House,” Sheeran stopped the song because fans began singing the first verse again instead of the second.

“You sang the wrong words!” he said, laughing.

Sheeran’s concert marked the first in his 2014 U.S. tour. Equipped with only an acoustic guitar and a loop pedal, the British star played with the vitality and immense energy of a one-man band, layering harmony and rhythm, building up slowly to his vocals.

There were moments when he overdid it. “You Need Me, I Don’t Need You” had so much going on that the original song was lost under layers of sound. But Sheeran’s musicianship was technically creative and made him more than just a guy with a guitar and some catchy melodies.

The show’s laughably silly visuals, splayed out across nearly 10 screens behind him, detracted from the simplicity of his songs. “Lego House” had images of Legos; his performance of “I See Fire,” written for the most recent installment of “The Hobbit,” was backed by clips of a dragon from the movie. “Sing,” the show’s finale, had cartoonlike eyeballs tumbling around an imaginary world and block letters asking the audience to “Sing!” and then “Louder”!

But the overproduction didn’t diminish Sheeran’s ability to connect with his audience and please his fans, overwhelmingly teenage girls, some of whom held up signs that said “You sound like sex” and “Aspiring musician.”

“It’s my job to entertain you and it’s your job to be entertained,” he said near the beginning of the set. And entertain he did.

INFORMATION REGARDING VENUES, TICKETS, ETC.

Why are all of the tickets the same price? Ed does this to make it fair to all fans. This also cuts down on scalpers.

Why does my ticket have a seat number when my show is completely General Admission (GA)? Venues put seat/row numbers on tickets so that they can keep track of their sales. I mean, you’d hate for them to turn you away because they over sold the show. If you want you can contact your venue and they can set your mind at ease and let you know if your show is completely GA. 

Should I wait outside to meet Ed & Rudimental? Is it worth it? This is 100% completely up to you. This is Ed’s first [headlining] arena tour in North America, so I don’t fully have an understanding of his ways. Please keep in mind that some of these arenas have indoor/underground parking for buses, in that case you shouldn’t wait outside.

GA FLOOR: When you bought your ticket it probably gave you a number like GA1, GA2, GA3, etc. This is a way of them keep the floor sales organized. The GA floor will vary for venues some may be one big section as opposed to a number of different sections and some will be structured with using two different floor sections (GA1 / GA2)

ARRIVING EARLY:  Before heading to the venue please call ahead or look online for the venues policies. Most venues request that no one shows up prior to 3pm for concerts. Some venues may act on this and ask you to leave, others may not. Please keep that in mind.

If you DO NOT have a GA FLOOR ticket there is no need to arrive 5 hours early. Take your time!

TIME OF SHOW / CURFEW: Not all shows have doors at the same time. Below will give you an idea of the time frame for most of the venues.
Doors: 5pm
Rudimental: 7pm
Ed Sheeran: 8pm
Curfew: 10pm

CONCERT ETIQUETTE / TIPS

I feel like this is really dumb to include this but time and time again someone proves that concert etiquette is in fact needed.

Saving spots: I know it’s really a nice gesture to save spots for a friend or two. But then it turns into 20 people because and that’s not right.  If you want to have a good vantage point during the concert you spend the time waiting in line.
Shoving: I know sometimes shoving happens at shows but try to refrain from shoving, and don’t weasel your way to the front. It’s just a way of causing drama and more than likely the people around you will hate you. Again if you want a spot up front wait in line like the rest of those fans who got barricade.

Screaming: Screaming a lone is fine but there is no need to shout obscenities/vulger during the show especially during a quiet part. Ed knows you’re at the show and that you love him.

Merchandise: The merch is numbered when asking for merch it’s easier to ask them “Can I get a #16 in Medium”,  rather than you saying “can I have that shirt” it’s hard for them to know which of the lot you’re pointing to. It’s gets stressful.   SMALLS are usually the first to go, so if you want to guarantee that your size is still available – you may want to get merch first.

Outdoor Venues: Check the weather (this goes for all shows if you plan on waiting in line), dress weather approporate. If it’s supposed to rain you can bring small sealed-plastic baggies (like ziploc brand baggies) and put your electronics in it to keep them safe. If you have a touch screen phone, your phone can still be used while inside the baggie.

Lastly try to be respectful and helpful to workers, crew and other fans at the show.

Just a couple of days before Taylor Swift officially announced she plans to release her first pop album, her pal Ed Sheeran announced he might be going (a little bit) country.

It makes no sense but, then again, what does these days?

Sheeran, the English singer-songwriter who once opened shows for Swift’s Red tour, told USA Today that a country collaboration with the guys from Florida Georgia Line isn’t all that far-fetched.

According to the newspaper, Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard have asked Sheeran to record with them.

I remember talking to Kelley and Hubbard on the CMT Music Awards red carpet in 2013, and Sheeran interrupted us to say hello. And even for that split second, you could see the potential camaraderie between the three guys. (And they all seem to have a genuine appreciation for all things Taylor Swift.)

Even when Sheeran is touring, it sounds like he’s taken a page from Swift’s instruction book.

“Use the crowd to your advantage and do a lot of call and response. Have your intimate moments, but have them sandwiched in between the big, grandiose moments,” he said, adding that his concerts are “essentially me onstage with a guitar, but the sound gets quite big because I use the loop station.”

While it remains to be seen whether he’ll end up working with Florida Georgia Line, Sheeran does a lot of co-writing and even had a hand in writing Swift’s “Everything Has Changed.” He’s also written for One Direction, Hilary Duff, Usher and Skrillex.
