When Ed Sheeran graced the stage at Pinkpop in 2014, he was already a star whose songs were sung word for word by the crowd. But that was before “Shivers,” “Perfect,” “Shape Of You” (the most streamed song for years), and all those other chart-topping hits. Before the record-breaking sales, before he became the biggest and most unlikely pop star in the world. His tools are those of a street musician: armed with just an acoustic guitar, a loop pedal, and some effects, this British one-man band sells out stadiums worldwide – all on his own. Ed is that guy who lives down your street, but secretly crafts pop classics at home and transforms into a charismatic superhero on stage. He made singer-songwriters cool again by blending folk-inspired pop tunes with hip-hop and R&B influences. Ed is simply the greatest, and he’s coming back to Landgraaf!
