From the old to the new, and from X to Divide, Ed Sheeran covered it all during his return to Saint Louis.

Massive crowds filled Busch Stadium on Thursday night for an incredible performance from the English star.

Sheeran returned to Saint Louis for the first time after his 2017 show was cancelled due to protest concerns. His return did not disappoint.

The performance was a perfect mix of his hits, and it targeted new fans and fans from the start.

Sheeran performed classics like “A Team” and “Tenerife Sea” but also captivated the audience with new catchy songs like “Galway Girl” and “New Man.” He used his infamous looping system to create an impressive one man show.

The looping process involves playing a beat, or even singing a phrase, both of which can be recorded on a small system which sits at the singer’s feet. Sheeran used his feet as he played his guitar to stop and start recording the sounds that played through the song.

A seemingly simple system created a unique, almost unbelievable product.

And if the music wasn’t enough to wow fans, the show included amazing stage technology and fun commentary from Sheeran.

“I’m not used to this heat,” Sheeran joked, “It’s hot!”

He even recounted his first experience at a radio program in America.

“I went and played for this guy in Nashville and I was so excited. I finished playing and asked if he’d be playing me on the radio. He looked at me and said ‘No, we already have Jason Mraz,” Sheeran said.

But it’s a good thing Sheeran didn’t give up, because his live and radio talent are well worth a listen. And I would even argue he’s made it bigger than Mraz.

It would be hard to find a pop music fan that doesn’t know and probably even love Sheeran’s talents.

The concert included beautiful melodies, catchy beats, eye catching technology and a connection with Ed Sheeran well worth the wait.
