One man, one gui­tar and 2 mi­cro­phones vs 11,000 peo­ple at a hugely hyped, long sold out gig at Me­dia City. no pres­sure then, Mr Sheeran, no pres­sure.

Along with his trusted live loop ma­chine, ed Sheeran de­liv­ered a live mas­ter­class. With just his own vo­cals, then looped as back­ing vo­cals, some beat­box­ing and tapped out beats on his gui­tar, he put on an act that was so riv­et­ing, it was hard to tell what took our at­ten­tion more – his grace­ful multi- tasking or the in­tense tracks that filled the huge space.

With no live band to fill the stage, the show was ac­com­pa­nied by a stunning – and some­times psy­che­delic – live video stream, while Ryan Keen, Sheeran’s friend and equally adept singer song­writer, opened the con­cert in style.
