Ed Sheeran‘s three sold-out nights for the historic Wembley Stadium in July were documented for the hour-long special to air on NBC this August. Ed Sheeran – Live at Wembley Stadium can take viewers behind the scenes and show footage through the massive run.
“I can’t state that performing at Wembley Stadium would be a ‘dream become a reality,’ because I honestly thought it was over the budget and didn’t think it absolutely was possible,” Sheeran said in the statement. “It doesn’t get any bigger Wembley over the internet, and it turned out an honour to participate in the limited number that have headlined there. It’s definitely a private milestone, and I’m so glad to discuss this special moment effortlessly my fans.”
Along with clips of Sheeran performing his very own singles, the special can even feature a duet between singer and Elton John. John joined Sheeran at among the gigs to do the veteran performer’s classic “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” and Sheeran’s own “Afire Love.” John had previously joined Sheeran on the Grammy Awards in 2013 to complete “The A-Team” together.
In between his worldwide tour meant for his sophomore album X, Sheeran opened with the Rolling Stones with the Kansas City stop in the band’s Zip Code tour. The singer-songwriter joined the Stones onstage for just a performance of “Beast of Burden.” In September, he’ll join Pearl Jam, Beyonce and Coldplay in the Global Citizen Festival in New York City.
