Ed Sheeran just released his second album x (pronounced 'multiply'), and he celebrated with an iHeartRadio Album Release Party Tuesday evening, June 17th at the iHeartRadio Theater Los Angeles presented by Pepsi.
Ed treated his fans #sheerios to music from x, which dropped June 23rd. Not only did the event feature a live performance by the three-time Grammy nominated singer, he also took part in a Q&A to talk about his new album, hosted by Mario Lopez. Ed performed music from his new album as well as old favorites.
Ed ended the show with a huge smile on his face as he sang his current smash hit. Leading the crowd in the song's earworm of a chorus, he insisted that they keep singing it even when he stopped, even when he left the stage, even when they left the venue, even after they got into their cars and even once they got home. As the crowd continued to sing while filing out after his incredible set, they heeded Ed's request and continued to sing.
