Review of Ed Sheeran at Glastonbury Festival 2017

Last weekend, Ed Sheeran performed his greatest hits to the enthusiastic crowds at Glastonbury crowd. Not stopping at Glastonbury, quickly after Ed Sheeran announced a 2018 UK and European stadium tour.

Ed Sheeran debuted at Glastonbury in 2011 and what a difference six years can make as Ed Sheeran returned to headline on the iconic Pyramid Stage this year. Having got a taste for the big stage, Ed Sheeran is excited to be playing some of the biggest stadiums across the UK and Europe. Recently, taking to twitter, Ed Sheeran announced a UK and European stadium tour kicking off next year in May. So, what can we expect from Ed Sheeran’s next tour?

Ed Sheeran confessed that when it came to headlining at Glastonbury, he was “very nervous”. A seemingly impossible feat after he played to 90,000 people at Wembley Stadium in 2015. If he was, he didn’t show it, he played an incredible mix of his oldest hit singles and latest chart topping tunes. Starting with Castle On The Hill and ending with the song that made him, You Need Me, I Don’t Need You, Ed Sheeran had fans at Glastonbury going wild for his most popular hits.

Though, Ed Sheeran faced some accusations against him not playing the guitar fully live, he took to twitter to explain that he uses a loop station to layer the music and create his unique sound. Many have praised Ed Sheeran for his spectacular performance ending Glastonbury on Sunday and here at Villiers we are excited to hear the news of an Ed Sheeran stadium tour next year.

Ed Sheeran never fails to create a fantastic sense of intimacy and belonging at each of his gigs, which is part of the charm in seeing him live. He interacts with the audience as he did throughout his 2017 arena tour and, with his own form of style and panache, Ed Sheeran oozes innate value that ensures thousands to get a slice of the action. There is no better way to kick off the summer than with Ed Sheeran’s stadium tour in 2018.
