Ed Sheeran appeared on the “TODAY” show on Wednesday morning and had some huge announcements to make. The first bit of news Ed had for viewers and fans was that the singer will be embarking on a four-month tour. The singer will kick off his 48 tour dates on June 29th and will continue until October 6th.
The second big announcement revealed was that he will be creating a boy band. “I have a bunch of songs that I think are really really good boy band pop songs,” the singer said. Ed did admit that he would consider keeping the songs for himself, but they are just too pop for his style of music. “There’s one called ‘South of the Border’ that’s a bit like funky,” Ed described while dancing.
Ed then hit the outside stage to perform the morning show’s first Citi concert series.
