Pandora has announced that Ed Sheeran will headline Pandora LIVE in celebration of his recently released new single “Bad Habits,” with special guest performances from Tones And I and Maisie Peters. The virtual event will take place on July 14 at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT. RSVP for the free event here.
Mikey Piff of SiriusXM Hits 1 (ch. 2) will host the evening featuring an in-depth interview with Sheeran and a game of “The Hot Seat” where he will be quizzed in a speed round about his career.
In collaboration with State Farm, Pandora has launched Pandora Live Backstage with Ed Sheeran, a new station for fans to hear behind-the-scenes stories from Sheeran and a mix of songs that inspire him. After the event, this station will be updated to include live performance tracks and commentary from the show.
From record-breaking sales across his recorded music and live performances, and a plethora of award wins to his name, Sheeran is known for writing some of the biggest songs in history. The four-time GRAMMY award winner has consistently resonated with fans across the world with his peerless songcraft and music palate. Sheeran has amassed more than 7 billion lifetime streams on Pandora and is only one of six artists to have three songs earn RIAA Diamond certification, for sale equivalents exceeding 10 million in the US alone; “Thinking Out Loud,” “Perfect” and “Shape Of You.”
“Feels great to be back with new music and performing live again” says Sheeran, “I’ve missed all of you so much. It’s going to be a fun gig with Tones And I and my friend Maisie Peters also on the bill. Can’t wait!”
Tones And I exploded onto the music scene with her worldwide smash “Dance Monkey,” which was #1 in 31 countries and 4x platinum in the US. Now preparing to release her debut album “Welcome To The Madhouse” on July 16, Tones And I has amassed over 223 million lifetime streams on Pandora and has appeared numerous weeks on the Pandora Top Spins and Trendsetter charts.
Maisie Peters has amassed millions of fans worldwide. With her debut album, You Signed Up For This arriving August 27 via Ed Sheeran’s Gingerbread Man Records, Peters’ relatable, diary-entry songs have already racked up 2 million lifetime streams on Pandora and landed her on the Pandora Predictions chart.
