Recently it’s been discussed that after his international tour, Ed Sheeran might take a little break from the music business and we wouldn’t blame him. He’s had a crazy few years.
For now though, he seems relatively happy with his work and yesterday (October 28th) the A Team hitmaker took part in a signing of his new autobiography ‘Ed Sheeran: A Visual Journey’.
Sheeran was in Manchester at retailer WHSmith and following the signing he took to Twitter to tell his fans that the story was the “largest” signing they’ve ever seen at that store.
Posting on his Twitter Ed said: “Just finished up the book signing. Thank you you all for turning up, it’s officially the largest signing they’ve had here so that’s alright.”
‘Ed Sheeran: A Visual Journey’ has been illustrated by Phillip Butah and goes into considerable detail on his life to date. It is currently retaining for around £13 at all major book outlets.
A few weeks ago the Daily Mail posted an excerpt from the publication where he spoke about living rough and sleeping in the street outside Buckingham Palace in London before he found fame.
“There was an arch outside Buckingham Palace that has a heating duct and I spent a couple of nights there… I didn’t have anywhere to live for much of 2008 and the whole of 2009 and 2010, but somehow I made it work.” he explained.
“I knew where I could get a bed at a certain time of night and I knew who I could call at any time to get a floor to sleep on. Being sociable helped. Drinking helped.”
Meanwhile, for two nights, beginning tomorrow, Ed will be travelling north to Glasgow to perform at the new SSE Hydro Arena on the 30th and 31st. His setlist will look like:
I’m a Mess
Don’t / No Diggity
Take It Back
Runaway / Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)
Thinking Out Loud
I See Fire
The A Team
Give Me Love
You Need Me, I Don’t Need You
