Playing his guitar with signature charm, Ed Sheeran knows exactly how to win over a crowd around the world. So just imagine this guy on the main stage of one of the most amazing music festivals on the planet. Yes, he is confirmed for Rock in Rio USA. How fanatastic is this? The musician’s performance earlier this year at Rock in Rio Lisbon had such a great impact on the audience, we had to ask him to join us in Las Vegas.
He plays folk, and he also has such a great ear for pop, with a few pinches of other genres, such as hip-hop. When he is playing live he wins the crowd not only with his collection of beautiful songs, but also with a stage presence of someone who feels at home in front of thousands of people.
This 23-year-old British singer and songwriter has already reached the very top of the charts in 14 countries. His latest album, X, is among the most sold albums in the United Kingdom in 2014. The video “Thinking Out Loud,” which was released this month, has already surpassed the 24 million views. This guy just rakes in achievements.
Rock in Rio USA will be held over the course of two weekends, on May 8 and 9, and May 15 and 16. So many acts are already confirmed: Metallica, Taylor Swift, No Doubt, Linkin Park, John Legend, Joss Stone and Deftones. And there will be so many more. Stay tuned…
