Last night, May 7, 2015, Ed Sheeran performed to a completely sold out crowd. Loads of radio stations were on hand, the opening act Ben Kweller took the stage, and VIP meet and greets were some highlights of the evening. With only one performance in Dallas, if it was missed out on, the opportunity to see the acoustic god live, is gone. AXS got some exclusive pictures of the show, too, so you can see what you might have missed.
There were lots of Clear Channel stations onsite at Verizon Theater last night for the sold out Ed Sheeran concert. 103.7 KVIL was at the top of the steps, just to the right of the will call. They had a unique opportunity for fans to pose with a cardboard cutout of Mr. Sheeran. Fans had a blast posing next to the singer's likeness, and pretending to blow his whistle.
The first act onstage was Ben Kweller. Armed with nothing more than his acoustic guitar, the singer bravely stepped onstage to perform some of his most recent songs. With only a black screen behind him with his name scattered across it, Mr. Kweller did an amazing job warming up the audience for the main performer.
Ed Sheeran took the stage at around 8:30 p.m. He played his most popular hits including "Thinking Out Loud", "Sing" and "Don't" among many, many others. He played by himself onstage with the amazing screens behind him, and fans sang, shouted, and cried for the red-haired strummer. It was a night most will soon not forget.
The VIP meet and greets were incredible. Fans that got this opportunity through the local radio stations would scream, jump, and cry over getting to meet Mr. Sheeran. One fan in particular was seen bawling, and when asked if she was ok, she sobbed, "I just got to meet Ed Sheeran!"
Mr. Sheeran is currently on his X tour, and will be stopping soon in a town near you. To check out when he is coming by your town, you can check here for tickets. If you missed this concert, he will be coming back to Dallas in September to the Frisco Stadium with Christina Perry. You can look for tickets to that show, here, if there are any left.
