Ed Sheeran performed in Mumbai this Sunday and concertgoers were as excited for his performance as they were back in 2015, when he performed for the first time. The 26-year-old Grammy Award winning hit maker performed at the Jio Gardens, BKC to a roaring crowd of fans that pretty much sang every single hit that he belted out.
For Ed however the party began on Friday when he landed in the city and promptly partied with Bollywood starlets at Farah Khan’s gathering that had everyone from Shah Rukh Khan to Malaika Arora and star kids like Janhvi Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan and others in attendance. Bhumi Pednekar, Masaba Gupta, Mouni Roy, Sushant Singh Rajput and others were present too. The celebrities posted pictures online which got fans excited for the show on Sunday.

The concert at BKC had fans lining up outside way before 5 pm, which is when the gates opened. They were enthusiastic throughout the opening act by artist Lauv who performed hits from his debut EP, Lost in The Light and is best known for his singles like ‘I Like Me Better’ and ‘The Other’. He enthralled audiences for nearly an hour before Ed stepped on stage.
Just when the crowd was pining for the ginger haired singer-songwriter to come on stage he casually sauntered on stage at 8 pm, dressed in a blue kurta, the shade resembling that of his latest album Divide. Ed didn’t disappoint the crowd as he performed non-stop for nearly an hour and a half. He started off by playing some of his hits from his debut album Plus and followed it up with the hit ‘Don’t’ from his album Multiply. As expected the crowd went wild when he performed his current and most popular track, ‘Shape of You’.

Halfway through the concert Ed changed into a blue Team India t-shirt and seemed to get comfortable on stage; he spoke to the crowd telling them that the first ever instrument he played was a piano, however he had forgotten how to play it. He also said that he loved the city of Mumbai, having performed here earlier in 2015. It was refreshing to see a singer on stage armed with a guitar and a loop pedal alone, all throughout his performance. The concert was a part of Ed Sheeran’s Divide Tour. His casual yet reverberating performance is sure to be remembered by concert goers for a long time.
