About the Show
Chart-topping singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran gives television audiences a front row seat to his sold-out summer headlining shows at London's Wembley Stadium in a one-hour NBC special, titled "Ed Sheeran - Live at Wembley Stadium."
"Ed Sheeran - Live at Wembley Stadium" shows the global superstar performing his biggest hits, including his breakthrough Grammy-nominated single "The A Team" and worldwide No. 1 smash "Thinking Out Loud," as well as a one-of-a-kind duet with Sir Elton John. The special also features unseen documentary footage surrounding Sheeran's record-breaking shows at the iconic venue, where he played to 240,000 fans across three memorable, sold-out nights.
Sheeran is a six-time Grammy-nominated, multiplatinum singer-songwriter. At only 24 years old, the British artist has already become a global phenomenon. His latest album "x" (pronounced multiply) has gone to No. 1 in 14 countries around the world, including the United States and his native United Kingdom, where it was both the biggest and fastest selling album of 2014. "x" was nominated for Album of the Year at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards and features a trio of platinum hits - "Sing," "Don't" and his chart topping smash "Thinking Out Loud" - as well as his latest single "Photograph."
An acclaimed live performer, Sheeran has played countless sold-out shows all over the globe, including a three-night stand at New York City's Madison Square Garden and four nights at London's O2 Arena. His current worldwide tour returns to North America this fall, highlighted by his biggest stateside show yet, taking place at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA, on September 25.
