Ed Sheeran on Today Show (Video) Summer Concert Performance, Interview

Here’s the video of Ed Sheeran on the Today Show. See the Grammy-winning British singer-songwriter’s live summer concert performance at The Plaza at Rockefeller Center in New York City, and the interview in Stidio 1A conducted by Matt Lauer, part of the Citi Concert Series. The replay and more details are below.

Ed Sheeran performed a before an estimated audience of 12,000 some of whom had camped out overnight. He performed his two smash hit singles — his Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit ‘Shape of You’ as well as the Billboard Top 10 hit. Castle on the Hill’ — from his new album, “÷,” (Divide), which was released in March 3rd to universal critical acclaim and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

He was also interviewed in Studio 1A by Matt Lauer and discussed a range of topics including his decision to quit Twitter due to backlash and trolls. He said “They make such a big deal of this. I got asked in an interview if I read negative things, and I was like, ‘Well, I don’t even go on Twitter anymore.’

He went on to say, “It’s not like I quit it. I still post on Instagram and it goes to Twitter.”

Reflecting upon the negativity on Twitter, he said, “I’m just not going to wake up and read something and be like, ‘Oh, well that’s ruined my day.’”

Elaborating, he added, “There’s so much positivity out there. I’m just saying as a human being, we always read the one negative one and ignore the others. And I don’t want to do that. It’s just foolish to do when there’s so much love out there in the world to look at the negative stuff. I’m just choosing not to read it.”

He’s currently on the North American leg of his world tour in support of the album. Earlier this year he announced the tour live during his appearance on the Today Show.
