ED Sheeran is a famous English singer and songwriter, who has won the hearts of people all over the world with his melodic voice. He is an occasional rapper and actor as well. His popularity increased especially after the release of his first album ‘+’ and after a guest appearance was made by him on Taylor Swift’s fourth studio album ‘Red.’ He began recording music in 2004. Ed Sheeran took to the stage at Cork’s Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Friday evening as the sun was beginning to set and proceeded to delight the 40,000 strong crowd with a selection of his best tracks. It was the first of three sold-out gigs at the newly refurbished stadium in Cork City and bode well for the Saturday and Sunday night concerts. One of Sheeran’s supports acts Jamie Lawson tweeted that it was “an incredible first night” adding “if every night is as good as that it’s going to be an amazing tour”. Irish trad band Beoga and singer-songwriter Anne-Marie are also supporting Ed on his Irish stint.
