A Candlelight Tribute to Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran is one of the biggest stars to debut in the 21st century. His catchy lyrics and undeniable hits have lead him to achieve incredibly impressive feats including winning multiple Grammys and Brits, selling out stadiums around the world and headlining Glastonbury in 2017.
Ed Sheeran’s latest album, Autumn Variations, was his seventh studio album and was released in 2023. The magical Candlelight series is paying homage to the most popular and loved songs from his albums including “Shivers”, “Shape of You” and “Photograph.” A string quartet puts a magical spin on the icon’s songs while thousands of candles twinkle and shimmer away.
Following its enormous success around the world—in cities like London, Manchester, Madrid, Barcelona and Paris—Candlelight has brought its unique experience to L.A. to pay tribute to one of the most popular musicians in the world. Hearing Ed Sheeran’s most famous songs performed on strings is magical enough in itself, but add a sea of twinkling candles to the mix, and these concerts are simply extraordinary.
