If you haven’t heard of Ed Sheeran, all you need to do is take a look and listen to Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” video. Once you soak up the amazing vocals and lyrics, you’ll know why the world is in love with Ed. Edward Christopher Sheeran is a 24-year-old singer-songwriter born in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire — but the British crooner eventually relocated to London in order to chase his musical dreams, and what a fine decision that turned out to be.
That’s because Sheeran is already selling out concert tickets at the Scottrade Center, which St. Louis Today reports sold out the same day that tickets for Ed’s May 10 concert at the Scottrade Center went on sale at 10 a.m.
Indeed, a look at the Sheeran Ticketmaster page shows a lot of warnings about Ed’s tickets; there are “not many left” for cities like New Orleans, Tulsa, Pittsburgh, Albany, Las Vegas (which also lists Taylor Swift appearing at that Rock in Rio USA MGM Resorts Festival), Newark, Brooklyn, Portland, Sioux Falls, Hollywood, Toronto, Winnipeg, Regina, Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, and Canandaigua, New York. Other cities, such as Uncasville, Connecticut; Bangor, Maine, and Philadelphia, report “no tickets right now.”
“Cause honey your soul could never grow old, it’s evergreen…”
No doubt it’s due to this high demand that high prices are being asked for Sheeran tickets on eBay, such as two tickets for Ed’s Prudential Center concert in May being listed at more than $20,000 as of this writing.
As far as the Sheeran tickets that have actually sold on eBay, the prices are a bit more reasonable, such as this completed listed of eight tickets to see Sheeran and Rixton in concert at the Red Rocks Amphitheater on June 30 that went for $1,660.00 for the group. With Ed’s popularity soaring and Sheeran fans not necessarily being able to grab the concert tickets they wanted via Ticketmaster prior to them selling out, it’ll be interesting to see those ticket prices on eBay jump higher and higher.
As reported by the Inquisitr, Ed has won a legion of fans by remaining true to his roots and performing intimate giveaway concerts to a small crowd from a tiny stage for 45 minutes, much to the delight of his fans.
