Last night Leicester Square got all green for the world premiere of Ed Sheeran’s concert film ‘Jumpers For Goalposts’.
Having been to one of the hat trick shows that Ed played at Wembley in summer 2015 it was an absolute honour to attend the world premiere for his big screen debut.
The green carpet got rolled out in front of the Odeon cinema at London’s Leicester Square and by the end of the night had been walked by the man himself, and various people of the music and showbiz.
First one to walk the carpet was the man of the night, Ed Sheeran giving plenty of press interviews and taking his time to meet and greet all the fans that had been waiting outside the cinema since the early hours of the morning.
Hosting the event was presenter Reggie Yates, leading fans all across the globe through the night as the happenings from Leicester Square were being streamed live into cinemas worldwide.
I never thought that my first red carpet event, or in this particular case being a green #EdCarpet event, would be for the world premiere of the very talented Ed Sheeran’s concert film, but I guess it’s not too bad for a start.
Once inside the cinema, the event continued with Reggie Yates talking to Ed on stage and going through some fan questions.
Ahead of the film, Ed Sheeran took to stage to dazzle the crowd with a special live performance which saw him perform ‘Tenerife Sea’, ‘Bloodstream’ and the famous ‘Thinking Out Loud’ that owned him cheering from the Odeon premiere audience.
Then it was finally time for the moment that the whole night had been building up to, the premiere of ‘Jumpers For Goalposts’.
The three hour concert film shows Ed’s amazing road to performing three consecutive sold outs night at London’s iconic Wembley stadium.
Showing the build up to each of the show days and giving the fans and insight of the behind the scenes action and the hard work that goes into pulling of a hat trick at Wembley is really quite something.
Throughout the whole film Ed is just being Ed, a hundred percent himself, joking , waking up hung over and slightly regretting it but still being able to smash it on stage a few hours later is something not everyone can handle easily.
‘Jumpers For Goalposts’ features some very impressive live footage of the individual concert nights at Wembley and it is an absolute treat for everyone that had the chance to attend the actual shows back in July 2015.
Reliving the moment, recreating memories and simply seeing the whole action from a different angle and Ed Sheeran’s perspective is something that you don’t get much often.
However, the film also caters for everyone that sadly hadn’t had the chance to catch Ed play Wembley live as it manages to transfer the energy and the vibe of an epic live concert straight into the cinema.
Surely this film will lead to massive sing-alongs within the audience and ending up being a big party all over again.
‘Jumpers For Goalposts’ will make you feel something and be it pure adoration for the music, adrenaline rushing through your veins as you recall those special moments being in the stadium or simply admiring Ed Sheeran’s impressive talent.
At the end of the day one thing is for sure, Ed Sheeran’s film debut is a true winner and a must see for all his fans and basically everyone that has ever asked themselves ‘How the hell does one man entertain an 80,000 strong crowd three days in a row?’.
Go and see it and you might find the answer.
