Ed Sheeran arrives today; plans to explore Mumbai

MUMBAI: Ed Sheeran’s much-awaited Divide album Asia Tour has finally kicked off.  Even though his widely covered injury led to select show cancellations, his love for India is pretty apparent considering he kept his date with India.

Here is some interesting scoop from his visit -

· Ed Sheeran is expected to arrive in Mumbai today.

· Since this is his second visit to the country, he wants to explore Mumbai a little more and has flown in two days earlier to his gig.

· He will be surprised at the airport with a traditional welcome ceremony with flowers, dancers and dhols.

· Surprisingly the humble hitmaker will not be flying on a private jet but travelling on a regular flight.

· He will be accompanied by an entourage of 45 people and will be given a fleet of 20 luxury cars.

· Close to 60 rooms will be booked at a South Mumbai hotel.

· His concert will be an intimate and not an overtly packed concert. A sigh of relief for a lot of fans! Alia Bhatt, Akash Ambani and Arjun Tendulkar are some of the people who are confirmed to attend the concert.

· He will be treated to a seven-course lavish traditional Indian dinner during his stay. And there are chances of the Ambani family hosting this one.

· For the fashion lovers, he will be wearing black trainers, black jeans and black T-shirt for the gig.

· Despite being a multimillionaire with a string of hits and sold-out tours under his belt, Brit star Ed Sheeran has the most modest backstage requirements, more like a mix of after-school refreshments, such as a bottle of Robinson's fruit squash, fresh passion fruit juice, milk, beer, a six-pack of fuzzy drinks, a jar of Manuka honey and a plate of assorted sliced fresh vegetable and fruits.

· His backstage wardrobe will include six shirts, two T-shirts, a hoodie and six shoeboxes. This just goes to prove Ed is not only the most low maintenance pop star, but also one of the nicest men in pop.

·        Since Ed is a cat and bicycle lover, the promoters will be arranging to have his backstage room customised to include animal and automobile graffiti.

Ed Sheeran Live in Mumbai concert in association with BookMyShow and PR Worlwide will be held on 19 November 2017at Jio Gardens, BKC.
