Today is the day. The magical, magical day that we are going to see Ed Sheeran (!!!!!) in concert. Ok, so the My Fangirl Life team actually has tickets to a bunch of shows this summer – we’re calling it our “Summer of Concerts” – because pretty much all of our favourite musical acts are coming to Edmonton. Members of our team have already seen Eric Church, Maroon 5, OneRepublic, and Shania Twain (review TBA) within the past couple months, and we have plans to see even more in the next few.
But on to today and the magic that is Ed Sheeran. I, for one, am obviously spending the entire day preparing for his concert. It sure is lucky for us that it is taking place on a Sunday! That being said, I believe Kris has actually taken a day off work in July to prepare for 1D, so perhaps we would have managed.
We’ve seen Ed perform before, but only as the opening act for Taylor Swift on her RED Tour. That in itself was amazing, but I can’t wait to see what Mr. Sheeran does with an entire show. I must prepare to be amazed! Here some ways you can prep yourself to watch him live (or, you know… if you don’t have tickets, ways you can just generally obsess over Ed Sheeran):
Listen to all of Ed’s music, obviously.
There’s more than you think. I have over 4 hours of content on my computer.
Pick out the cute outfit you will wear while sitting 1-400 rows away from him (depending on your tickets).
Obvs it has to be a suuuuper cute outfit. (I can’t decide!!!)
Watch all your favourite Ed Sheeran music videos.
I just can’t choose a favourite. Maybe “Drunk” just because of the cat… or “Lego House” because of Rupert Grint… or “Photograph” because Ed is adorable… or “Thinking Out Loud” because Ed is a total dreamboat… sigh…
Learn all the lyrics to “Take It Back”.
“Mmmm come on and take it back love
Come on and take it back for us
Don’t you fade into the back love
Got that part? That’s the easy part. Now check out the rest and you’ll see that you can really kill some time doing this.
Make a sign.
Then maybe you can find yourself in those Instagram shots Ed always posts from his show!
Learn how to play an Ed Sheeran song on your guitar, just because.
Except maybe just learn the chords and strum along. Not everyone can be Ed Sheeran.
Find some Ed interviews online and watch them all, obsessing over how adorable he is.
Which is really adorable.
Have a couple drinks with your cat.
Like the “Drunk” music video…
Get an Ed-related tattoo.
Maybe a paw print or a sleeve that matches his (this step is for hard-cores only).
Brainstorm math expressions for his next album title.
Because apparently that’s how he like to do things, but what’ll it be? -? That seems too negative. π? Maybe that’s too tasty. ∞? Or is that too grand? √-1? That seems too imaginative. Δ? But what would the difference be? Ω? Too current, I guess.
Eeeeeek! I just can’t wait for this concert. Check back later this week for a review/recap/commentary/an article on whatever part of the show inspires me most!
How else would you celebrate Ed’s awesomeness? Let us know in the comments!
