Ed Sheeran provided his Edmonton fans with an entertaining and memorable evening at Rogers Place in his first of two North American tour shows in the city this week. Sheeran showed off his ridiculous musical talents and superb vocals with his impressively simple production.
But first, Edmonton was wooed by the sounds of James Blunt — Sheeran’s opening act for the evening.
Blunt is, in many ways, the perfect opening act for Sheeran as he too wooed the crowd with his stellar vocals and instrumental diversity.
Blunt, a Grammy-nominated artist having sold more than 20 million albums in his career, released his new album The Afterlove in March. Sheeran was a key co-writer on the album, helping Blunt write songs while visiting him in Switzerland.
