In June 2018, news of Ed Sheeran coming to South Africa sent locals into a frenzy. Finally, Sheeran arrived in the country last week and judging from last night’s show in Johannesburg, we are in for a treat this coming Wednesday and Thursday. Some fans have even hailed Sheeran the ‘best live performance’ they have ever watched.

Tickets are still available for Thursday’s show in the Mother City.

The opening act, Passenger, was also a huge hit. We’ve collected some social media snippets from the concert at FNB Stadium to keep the momentum going.
