We’re no stranger to celebrity sightings, what with Maroon 5, Hozier, Miley Cyrus and even Ed Sheeran just a few weeks ago performing in the subway.
But apparently, that wasn’t enough for English singer-songwriter, Ed Sheeran, who took to NYC streets last Friday to perform another impromptu concert atop a Volvo outside of his NYC pop-up shop.
The world-renowned artist just released his newest album Subtract and has been making his appearance in NYC known over the last few weeks. After performing with 62-year old NYC icon, Mike Yung, in the subway and listening to fans sing their favorite songs back to him, Ed Sheeran has been quite the man about town.
And just three weeks later, he’s delighted fans again with an impromptu concert on the roof of a very questionably sound Volvo. The performance was located just outside The Subtract Pop-Up Experience on 105 Wooster Street.
The pop-up experience was open from May 5-7, featuring limited-edition merch, interactive installations and official signed CDs. Additional pop-up shops were held in other major cities like Dallas, Chicago and L.A.
Ed Sheeran even made another surprise performance at the Dallas pop-up just a day after his NYC appearance—this time, atop a more sturdier ice cream truck.
In New York, he performed a medley of songs acoustically, with just him and his trusty guitar. According to the Daily Mail UK, it was his first public appearance since the end of his recent trial.
Sheeran was on trial for a copyright case claiming his hit single, ‘Thinking Out Loud,’ infringed on Marvin Gayes’ ‘Let’s Get It On.’ In the end, the courts sided with Sheeran on the case, clearing his name. This was not Sheeran’s first copyright infringement case, as he won a previous trial for his song, ‘Shape of You.’ “I just think it comes with the territory,” Ed Sheeran told CBS News in an interview.
