Ed Sheeran’s NYC Show Has Him — And Fans — Taking Their Shirts Off

Taylor Swift reported for BFF duty, too, on Saturday night.

NEW YORK — Fans camping overnight for the best spots in the crowd; girls FaceTime-ing best friends who couldn’t make it during their favorite song; shirts flying off and being waved over heads; and Taylor Swift gangster-leaning to “Lego House.” It could all only mean one thing: Ed Sheeran was in town, and boy, was it a night his fans will be “Thinking Out Loud” about forever.

The 80-degree weather and relentless sun — I have the crazy farmer’s tan to prove it– meant nothing to the countless fans who marked their territory in front of and around the block of Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City as early as 3 p.m. the day before to see Sheeran rock the stage Saturday night.

This show was the last stop of the week for Sheeran who, after playing what seemed to be a rapid-fire gig schedule on Friday with stops at the Empire State Building and Ellis Island, and premiering his “Nine Days and Nights of Ed Sheeran” documentary, has been busy promoting his album X (a.k.a. Multiply ) in the city all week. But neither he nor the fans showed any signs of fatigue.
