Ed Sheeran Breaks Arm In London Bicycle Crash


Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran had a lucky escape when he got knocked down by a car while out riding his bicycle in London last week, getting away with just a broken arm. Still, a break this bad could have a major impact on his forthcoming Asian tour dates.

No details regarding the accident have been released, apart from that fact that he was hit by a car while riding down a London street, according to The Mirror. But regardless of what happened, he plays the guitar right-handed, so we can't imagine a scenario where he'll be able to play on his next tour dates

A handful of lucky fans won the chance to see Ed Sheeran live in the living room of Holly Branson's home in Washington DC ahead of his show at the Capital One Center on Wednesday (September 20th 2017). It was all part of a collaboration between Amnesty International and Sofar Sounds with their Give A Home campaign, which includes 300 secret gigs across 200 cities and 60 countries in just 24 hours.

Ella Eyre Won't Write About Ex On New Tracks


Ella Eyre Rixton Ed Sheeran

Ella Eyre won't be writing about her ex-boyfriend in her new music.

The 23-year-old singer insists she won't be heading in the studio to get over her split from Rixton's Lewi Morgan because it was the ''most uninteresting break-up ever''.

She said: ''I'm friends with all my exes and Lewi is one of them. I'm still in touch with his family and his band is coming back with new music, so I'm checking up on that to see how it's going. The way me and Lewi split up was so mutual, calm and respectful. I'd struggle to write an interesting song about it because it was the most uninteresting break-up ever!''

Ed Sheeran's Promoter Turned Away From Viagogo After Confronting Them Over Ticket Touting


Ed Sheeran

The battle against ticket touting has escalated after Ed Sheeran’s promoter, along with two MPs, was turned away from the London offices of ticket re-sale site Viagogo when they confronted the company with a letter and questions regarding their practices.

They had travelled to the London HQ of Viagogo’s parent company VGL, accompanied by disappointed and irate customers who claimed the company had ripped them off by adding huge fees to the face value of a ticket, as well as VAT. However, Conservative MP Nigel Adams and Labour MP Sharon Hodgson were both told the police would be called if they didn’t leave the premises.

The company is accused of hiking the prices of tickets by up to 34% through hidden fees that only become apparent when a customer clicks through the site to payment details.

'Game Of Thrones' Director Defends Ed Sheeran Cameo


Ed Sheeran Game Of Thrones

After his cameo appearance in ‘Game Of Thrones’ this weekend that sharply divided viewers on social media, the show’s director has come to Ed Sheeran’s defence saying that the singer is a “lovely performer” who “deserved to be there”.

In fact, the reaction was such that 26 year old Sheeran quit Twitter altogether in the wake of the season premiere of the seventh series of ‘Game of Thrones’ on Sunday night (July 16th). However, the HBO fantasy show’s director, Jeremy Podeswa, has told The Daily Beast in a new interview that he felt Sheeran’s appearance was appropriate.

Podeswa admitted he was “a bit surprised that people have made that much fuss about it… he looks right in the show; he fits into the fabric of the show.”

'Game Of Thrones' Hate Forces Ed Sheeran To Deactivate Twitter Account


Ed Sheeran Game Of Thrones

He gave us fair warning, but Ed Sheeran has finally decided to scrap his Twitter account altogether now after a stream of hate messages following his 'Game Of Thrones' cameo. There was barely enough screen time for him to have had a poor performance, but that didn't stop his biggest critics.

We have a feeling that Ed's brief spell as a singing soldier in season 7 of 'Game of Thrones' was meant to be a tongue-in-cheek moment for the series, but there were a lot of people out there who felt angry about his involvement in the episode 'Dragonstone'. As a result, he's shut down his Twitter account in a bid to stem the flow of hate.

Ed Sheeran Writes Songs For Jess Glynne


Ed Sheeran Jess Glynne

Ed Sheeran has written some songs for Jess Glynne's new album.

The 'Shape of You' hitmaker stormed the charts earlier this year with his comeback LP '÷' following 12 months away from the spotlight but, despite his busy schedule, the flame-haired hunk has still managed to find some time to pen two tracks titled 'Thursday' and 'Woman Like Me', for Jess' forthcoming record as she's hoping to emulate his success when she drops her new sound later this year.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''After the success Jess enjoyed with her first album, she has been able to pick and choose who she works with but was delighted that Ed came on board. His offerings are set to be major components of Jess's album - his songwriting and her distinctive sound are a perfect fit.''

Following his abrupt departure from social media over a string of abusive comments, Lady GaGa has spoken out in defence of Ed Sheeran and urges people to be kinder to artists and make the internet a friendlier place. It's about time the trolling ended.

After a stellar Glastonbury set, all Ed Sheeran got was criticism on Twitter. Now he's decided he'd rather not deal with it at all, and has quit the platform and left all his social media responsibilities to someone else on his team.

'Why Do They Hate Me?' Ed Sheeran Leaves Twitter Over Baffling Hate Messages


Ed Sheeran

Poor Ed Sheeran's been having a really tough time since his Glastonbury appearance. He has faced so much criticism online that he has made the momentous decision of leaving social media altogether - at least for now. His fans will surely be disappointed, but the trolling is getting out of hand.

The 'Castle on the Hill' singer played a sensational set as the Sunday headliner at Glastonbury last month, but despite his popularity he has still received an influx of hateful abuse on Twitter. It started out with accusations that he was using a backing track throughout his performance rather than playing live (when he was actually using a loop pedal) and culminated in many telling him that he wasn't worthy of the Glasto slot in the first place.

UK Singles Chart Changes Rules To Prevent 'Ed Sheeran Effect'


Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran shattered all sorts of chart records earlier this year when his latest album Divide was released, with all 16 of its tracks hitting the UK Top 20 singles chart at the same time.

However, it’s now unlikely that anybody else will emulate such a feat, or even come close, after the Official Charts Company announced changes to the rules surrounding the compilation of the charts, particularly regarding the weighting given to streaming.

Ed Sheeran Glastonbury Festival

Ed Sheeran headlined the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury Festival this weekend and you'd be hard-pushed to find a more rocking acoustic set anywhere. To a 200,000 strong crowd, he played a mixture of his biggest hits as well as the lesser known numbers from the likes of 'Divide' and 'X'.

Shaun Ryder Argues Ed Sheeran's Success Is Due To Industry


Shaun Ryder Ed Sheeran

Shaun Ryder believes Ed Sheeran's ongoing chart success is due to how the industry now works.

The Happy Mondays and Black Grape singer insists the charts are ''irrelevant'' so doesn't really care that the 'Shape of You' singer recently had a record-breaking 16 tracks in the top 20 singles chart and his latest album 'Divide' has been at the top of the charts since its release.

He told NME: ''I'm fine with how Ed did it, I have no problems with that.

Ed Sheeran Reveals He Writes Songs As A "Form Of Therapy"


Ed Sheeran

His hits are some of the most riotously popular of the 2010s so far, but Ed Sheeran has revealed that songwriting holds another, much more utilitarian purpose for him than just for making money – he writes as a “form of therapy”.

The 26 year old English singer appeared on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Desert Island Discs’ programme this week, in an episode that will be broadcast on Sunday (May 7th), but a teaser clip ahead of the full show reveals that the flame-haired icon writes in order to pick himself up when he’s feeling down.

Returning to the small screen a little later than usual this year, hit fantasy series 'Game of Thrones' - based on the best-selling novel series 'A Song of Ice and Fire' by George R R Martin - will be going into its seventh season with a lot of questions to answer. Now with Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) on the Iron Throne (with nothing much left to lose), there are many different directions the series could go in.

This time round, the show is also breaking tradition with the amount of episodes it's bringing to fans, with just seven filmed rather than the usual 10. Jeremy Podeswa, Mark Mylod, Matt Shakman and Alan Taylor will be serving as directors for the seven episodes, with writers on each still to be confirmed.

Ed Sheeran Recalls Hitting Justin Bieber With A Golf Club While "Hammered"


Ed Sheeran Justin Bieber

Ed Sheeran will have gone up even further in some people’s estimations, recently divulging that he accidentally hit Justin Bieber in the face with a golf club while he was “hammered”.

The 26 year old English singer, currently promoting his third album Divide which is released worldwide on March 3rd, gave an interview to The Guardian in which he recalled some of the random things he’s been up in the last year.

He was out partying in Japan with Justin Bieber, when they decided to visit a golf course to round off their evening. As you might expect two guys high on life (one on booze too), a dare followed.

Walk Off The Earth Ed Sheeran

Just when you think modern music has been whittled down to a mere handful of instruments, Walk Off The Earth come along for an extraordinarily creative rendition of a chart hit using tools you've probably never even heard of before. Their latest project is a cover of Ed Sheeran's single 'Shape Of You'.

Walk Off The EarthWalk Off The Earth do Ed Sheeran's 'Shape Of You'

Ed Sheeran's latest dancefloor classic 'Shape Of You' has hit number one in at least ten countries for a reason; it's just one of those infectiously uplifting numbers you can't get enough of. But is Walk Off The Earth's multi-instrumental version featuring a mash-up of TLC's 'No Scrubs' and Black Street's 'No Diggity' even better?
