Fears are being expressed following Ed Sheeran’s announcement of a fourth consecutive night in Cardiff in June 2018.
Coming as it does towards the end of the 18 date stadium concerts, there are concerns that the singer’s digits will be little more than bloodied calloused stumps by the time he finishes his Cardiff dates.
The singer’s management team remain unphased:
“Ed is undertaking a rigorous finger toughening schedule, and not using any moisturisers throughout the run up to the gig. Each night he rubs his fingers with coarse sandpaper – believe me – that boy could get a tune out of a cheese wire,” said one of his team.
Ed announced his fourth gig after he remembered he had some posh settees to pay off by the end of the year.
