If “the club isn’t the best place to find a lover”, then perhaps you need to try a Candlelight tribute concert to Ed Sheeran. The British singer-songwriter’s hit songs, from “Shape Of You” to “Photograph”, will receive enchanting renditions in candlelit surroundings for a night out that will be “Perfect”.
Said to have “brought pop back down to earth”, Ed Sheeran has become one of the most influential artists of his generation, going on to sell more than 150 million records worldwide and inspiring many copycats that tried to do the same. He was named artist of the decade in 2019, was named the second most-streamed artist by Spotify for the same time and is number one for the highest-grossing tour of all time for ÷ Tour in 2017. Not bad for a boy from Yorkshire/Suffolk.
Now, Ed Sheeran’s hit songs are getting the Candlelight treatment in Brisbane thanks to Ensemble Cherubim. The setlist for the evening includes your favourites as well as “Bad Habits”, “Thinking Out Loud”, “Overpass Graffiti”, “Afterglow” and “Make It Rain”. As candles glow, light flickers and dances, and hands move over strings, the music will resonate and sound as if these songs were written just for you.
Candlelight: A Tribute to Ed Sheeran takes place at the historic, 100-year-old heritage-listed venue, The Lussh, on Friday 17 June. There are two performances at 6:30pm and 8:30pm. Make it a date and get dinner before or after.
Seating, like the candles, will surround the stage and envelop you for a night of sensational music on strings.
