Ed Sheeran, who will return to the U.S. in September for a string of shows, has landed a one-hour concert on NBC titled Ed Sheeran - Live at Wembley Stadium.
The network revealed Friday the program, which highlights Sheeran's performance at London's Wembley Stadium, will air Sunday, Aug. 16, at 8 p.m. EST, consisting of "unseen documentary footage with exclusive access that captures the build up around Ed’s historic, record-breaking shows at the iconic venue, where he played to 240,000 fans across three memorable, sold-out nights."
“I can't say that performing at Wembley Stadium was a ‘dream come true,' because I honestly thought it was out of reach and didn't think it was possible,” Sheeran said in a press release. “It really doesn’t get any bigger than Wembley in my mind and it was an honour to join the select few that have headlined there. It’s definitely a personal milestone and I’m so glad to share this special moment with all of my fans.”
The news comes as the Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter said in a recent interview that he once "misjudged a fart on stage, which ended up being a shart ... It was, like, midway through a performance and I was really lively, and then halfway through I was like, ‘All right I’m just going to stand for the rest of the performance, and hope it’s over soon and then go home and throw these trousers out!’”
