The special, called Ed Sheeran - Live At Wembley Stadium, will debut on NBC August 16!!
In the special, fans will see the superstar singer perform his biggest hits from London's sold-out venue — oh yeah, and get the treat of watching Sheeran and Elton John perform a duet on stage together!
Of his foray into TV to re-live the concerts in London, Sheeran said:
"I can't say that performing at Wembley Stadium was a ‘dream come true,' because I honestly thought it was out of reach and didn't think it was possible. But with each tour, the venues continued to grow and it became something of a challenge to see how far we could take it, how big we could go and still deliver a show that connected with the entire audience. It really doesn't get any bigger than Wembley in my mind and it was an honour to join the select few that have headlined there. It's definitely a personal milestone and I'm so glad to share this special moment with all of my fans."
Produced by Jim Parsons, Julie Jakobek and Stefan Demetriou, the one-hour TV special is a perfect complement to Sheeran's current world tour, which returns to North America in the fall.
Begin counting down the days — the special will run on NBC on Sunday, August 16 at 8pm ET!
