Jumpers for Goalposts: Live at Wembley Stadium
Director: Paul Dugdale
Producers: Jim Parsons & Julie Jakobek
Location: Wembley Stadium, London, and worldwide tour locations
In July 2015 Ed Sheeran became the first solo artist ever to headline Wembley Stadium without a band. The 25-year-old sold out the iconic stadium for three nights, playing to more than quarter of a million people. JA Films captured this historic event and the fascinating build up to it.
The film, with Paul Dugdale directing, combines electric live performance with intimate glimpses into Ed’s world as he prepares for the biggest shows of his life. It was premiered to audiences in Leicester Square, London, and cinemas around the world on 22nd October 2015.
Ed kept 90,000 people a night entertained with his famous solo showmanship: building up layers of guitar, percussion and vocals using a loop pedal. The film includes hit songs “The A Team”, “Sing”, “Thinking Out Loud” and a surprise duet with Elton John.
