Ed Sheeran is creating a boy band!

New group will open for Ed on tour next year.

March 7, 2017

With Ed Sheeran's song Shape Of You still planted firmly at #1 on both the Billboard Hot 100 and Pop Songs airplay chart and his new album Divide now out in the world, the British singer/songwriter's star has never been brighter.  He also graces the cover of the new Rolling Stone magazine, which followed Ed around his life for a few days and published an excellent article about him.  You can read it here.  Deep within the article Ed drops a little nugget on us which I think is pretty significant.  He is evidently busy at work CREATING HIS OWN BOY BAND.  Now we all know that he wrote a few songs for One Direction when they were first getting started, including one of their hits, Little Things.  But imagine this... Ed writes all the songs for the group (you know they'll be good), then takes them on tour with him to open the show when he plays stadiums next year.  If I were a betting man, I would say this is a sure fire recipe for success.  Add to it the fact that there really is a large void in the boyband department these days.  I for one can't wait to see/hear what this new group may become!
