ATTENTION SHEERIOS: Your boy Ed Sheeran just played a not-so-secret ‘secret’ show in a Melbourne laneway, and while you probably missed it, there’s video and photos of the whole thing.
Early this morning, word spread that Sheeran would be hosting a ‘secret performance’ in Melbourne’s Hosier Lane, and eager fans lined up in their droves. They were told there were to be “no phones” and “no photos” during the performance, but (of course) rules are meant to be broken.
