Just got dragged to a concert. Can’t see what the fuss is about tbh, every song sounds the same , plus he’s ginger.

Still, got semi de wet Barry and had a row with the Mrs about route home so not all bad.

Would have preferred watching the footy tbh

Don't get the trend of talking in songs instead of properly singing and it all seems like self obsessed banal shite but then again I'm on the way to being an old codger

The Mrs R went to see him with other mums, and they took the kids.

I stayed at home and watched back to back sports; drank beer and bbq’d chicken wings.

Sound like pi55 poor planning on your part Yeeb.

ok, i'm listening to Mr Sheehran's songs at the moment, no wonder he's getting all the chicks.

the songs melodies are really good, and the songs are about love and emotions, and he sings and look like a woman's best mate.

The guy has it all good.

No way. He's better than that. Hes the guy fully aware of his 6/10 status and doesn't hit above that but is still straight and STILL chats to the girls up to and including 9s like Taylor swift.

He is a rare beast. Music appears to be fcking shit, but thats what girls appear to be into.

I imagine his circle of fifths pop sounds great in a lift but he certainly does not epitomise the magesty of rock.

Girls like Ed Sheeran in the same way as they are into guys with dad bods.

takes the pressure off them having to look good.

Hmm. Good point. Despite being one of the world's leading gender theorists that one had escaped me.

there is no such thing as being 6 if you can write songs on purpose... a 6 from senecas view is then a 9 for girls, unless you are trying to date reality-tv girls... or seneca.

This. Inoffensive fluff really, but his songs are the same soppy shit over and over, yet he gets loads of airtime and hype.

Seems a decent guy so don't have anything against him, despite the ginge, but I just don't get the popularity.


The Mrs loves his stuff and went through a phase of playing his stuff when we got home after being on the piss, when all I wanted was to go to bed.

Gets right on my tits.

Went to the latitude festival and there was a ny rap group playing in the woods, went to see them and nobody was there- next thing this ginger plum appears on stage for a secret gig and 20,000 people try and get in the tent.

Love rap, don’t like Mumford and sons shite.

She was probably looking for the ride there Nols. My own would pop on Tom Waits. Now I get an erection every time I watch Mystery Men.

Nah, she was having a rough time in work at the time and was guaranteed to get all teary if she drank enough. Then Ed Sheeran goes on and the world was against her (including me, probably :lol: ).
The ride was definitely out of the question.


Plus, I wasn't exactly patient when I heard the Ginger Whinger go on again. :lol:

Some of you lads feel very strong about taking a guy down, seemingly because he is popular but not particularly good-looking. You'd think he'd be a shining beacon for the PR men.....

Can't say I have any of his albums, or would pay to go to his concerts. But he's a got a couple of good songs and mostly his own work, the type of stuff that happily passes the time on the radio whilst driving. And he seems like a good egg.

Sal, I don't hate him or wish him badly, just don't get the level of popularity. Granted everyone has different tastes.

It's the crazy levels of exposure that I'm occasionally subjected to that bothers me the most.

Was more pointing towards the OP and first posters.

I agree on the exposure levels, for many artists. I still don't get the Adele-hype, she sounds like an angry cat most of the time.

I'm with Nolanator, I just don't understand what his *particular* appeal is musically although fair play he gets on the stage and does his songs just him and guitar which would scare the shite right out of me. Then again, being way older and constantly bemused by what is popular why should I know what music young women will rave over I suppose?

Ah we didn’t pay for the tix - for various reasons we get shitloads of freebies like concerts tix, tv’s , xboxes , meals at places you have to book ahead for etc

Mrs wisely left me the fudge alone today for Father’s Day so I’ve had a lie in and solid afternoon of sport in front of the telly.

Highlight of the concert for me was still seeing that woman tread in her mates vomit !
For me, that sort of shit will never not be funny !

A freind of mine is on the same bill as Ed Sheeran this week.
She is much more excited about meeting Dermot O'Leary who is presenting the show.

Can't say he does much for me but he's clearly popular.

He filled Dunedin's Forsyth Barr three nights in a row - something like 120,000 punters in a city of 120,000.

Put a bit of strain on the city's accommodation and a lot of Dunedin people heard from relatives who had been ignoring them for years.

It's a good thing they're hospitable folk. They even leave their doors unlocked so All Blacks can pop in and have somewhere to eat their McDonald's.

He’s found the middle of the road and is riding it out perfectly, but of all the uber-successful contemporary musos he’s easily the most irritatingly average. Only one of his hits that I find actively hateful though, that Hobbit one. Musical arse pain.

There’s also something very unsettling about his face. Waiting for the inevitable reveal that he’s a confirmed wrongun

I'm being dragged along to one of his gigs by the girlfriend this week x( Don't know how I'm going to get through it - but being told I have to go as none of her friends are available. I'm not sure she even likes him - she's just enjoying the sadistic power play
