People Are Annoyed At Ed Sheeran For Cancelling Shows

Ed Sheeran has had a whirlwind year.

A comeback of epic proportions with his ‘Divide’ album, a stint on Game of Thrones, a car accident that saw him being rushed to hospital - and now, a barrage of angry fans.

It’s all because of the aforementioned car accident, and the subsequent cancelling, and then postponing of the Asian leg of his world tour.

He wrote on Instagram: "A visit to my doctors confirmed fractures in my right wrist and left elbow that will leave me unable to perform live concerts for the immediate future.

"Sadly, this means that the following shows will not be able to go ahead as planned: Taipei, Osaka, Seoul, Tokyo and Hong Kong.

I'm waiting to see how the healing progresses before we have to decide on shows beyond that. Please stay tuned for more details."

Well, while some fans have supported Ed through his recovery, others have taken to social media to express their disappointment, even going as far as compare him to Chester Bennington, who played on through a show with a broken wrist.

Another post said: "Remember Dave Grohl when he broke his leg on the show? He went to the hospital, fixed his leg and came back to sing for the people he loved. Show up on stage, bud, that's what we do, that's our life.

This fan was a bit more blunt: "So you let down all these people that have paid to see you, just because you did that. Jesy Nelson from Little Mix was in a wheelchair for one of the Get Weird concerts and she still did it."

However, it’s important to remember that Ed is all about his guitar, that’s how he performs, and he’s entitled to be fighting fit when he goes on stage, isn’t he?

According to a report on LadBible, the guitar also helps Ed to soothe his anxiety, but not only that, it’s also central to how he builds his songs live on stage through his loop pedal.

He creates everything using his voice, the guitar chords, or by tapping on the body of the guitar.

All that being said, we wish you speedy recovery, Ed!
