Ed Sheeran is well-loved all around the world and Malaysia is no exception
From going to extreme lengths just to score tickets to his concerts, to coming up with heartfelt tributes to him and/or his songs, Malaysian Sheerios have definitely gone all out to show their love for Ed Sheeran over the years.
If you didn't manage to get yourself tickets for his upcoming KL concert, find out how you can win tickets at the end of the story!
1. Dressing up in a Spiderman costume and dancing on the LRT
Spidey a.k.a Louis Megami was so desperate to score himself tickets to the sold out Ed Sheeran concert back in 2015 that he donned his costume and turned the LRT into his personal dance floor with an enthusiastic dance routine set to Ed Sheeran’s ‘Don’t’. He was so good that his actions went viral and he did manage to get himself tickets in the end!
2. Spending over RM4,000 on concert tickets
When Ed Sheeran’s upcoming 2017 concert in KL ended up selling out in less than an hour, many Sheerios resigned themselves to not being able to catch the show this time around. Especially when people started re-selling the tickets at insane prices.
But this anonymous fan wasn’t willing to just forgo the chance of finally seeing Ed Sheeran live and paid over RM4,000 (RM2,320 per ticket to be exact) for two tickets to the concert. Talk about dedication man!
3. Going alllll out in contest entries for the chance to see him live in concert
What's a Malaysian Sheerio to do when Ed Sheeran's 2017 concert completely sold out before you could get yourself tickets? :(
Go all out and make super creative contest entries that are sure to grab the organiser's attention so that you'll hopefully get lucky and win tickets!
We especially love these ones:
1. This girl who drew and coded every single frame of this awesome animation herself:
4. Creating an awesome music video that caught the attention of Ed Sheeran himself
Malaysian Sheerios truly rose to the challenge when Ed Sheeran put out a call via a local radio station for fans to share their baby photos with him as part of his promotions for ‘Photograph’.
They totally took it one step further by creating a music video compilation of the entries received, something that Ed clearly appreciated as evidenced by him sharing the video on his Facebook and giving a little shoutout to Malaysia awwww! :')
5. Paying tribute to his songs with some truly unique covers
With the release of '÷', Ed Sheeran's third studio album this year, fans got 12 brand new amazing tracks to play on repeat. Lead single 'Shape Of You' is arguably not only Ed's best-performing song to date, but one of the biggest hits and most covered songs of the year.
Check out some impressive ones we found done by Malaysian fans below:
1. This caklempong team from SM Sains Tuanku Munawir (SASER), a boarding school in Seremban seriously blew us away with their cover! What a cool and truly Malaysian way to show some love for Ed Sheeran.
6. Listening to the concert from outside the hall
What's the next best thing to watching Ed Sheeran live in concert? Listening to it from outside! @sofiya.thefirst shared about her experience doing just that on Instagram:
"...the last time Ed Sheeran came to Malaysia in 2015 I couldn't go because the tickets were sold out. So I went to the concert venue and sat outside of the hall to hear his angelic voice and I was crying throughout the whole concert."
We totally salute your dedication girl and hope you get to see him this time!
