Ticket verification measures in place at Ed Sheeran's concert

Fans who buy tickets will have their names printed on the tickets, which will then be subjected to identification checks at the entrance of the National Stadium, where the English superstar will perform on April 26.
...

Good move by Ed insisting that tickets have purchasers’ names printed on them. Wish Maroon 5 had done the same (I might have gotten better seats).

Caught The Weeknd at the Indoor Stadium last week...pretty damn good. Can't believe how good he sounds live, practically identical his recordings, almost to the point where I wonder if he was lip-sync'ing.  ;D

Caught Maroon 5 yesterday… Weirdly UNimpressive opening, and took the band a long time to connect with the crowd. On top of which the sound system was too tiny for such a large venue, not to mention the vocal mix seemed to be off (albeit we didn’t have the best seats in the house ;D).

All in all, not that great a gig IMHO :P

Not a huge fan, but got dragged by the wife to Ed Sheeran’s gig yesterday… full on one-man band with a loop machine, the guy is super talented for sure.
