Ed Sheeran has broken out a number of old favourites and rarities at his recent ‘X’ 10th anniversary show in New York. Find footage of the gig and the full setlist below.The gig took place at the historic Barclays Center in New York last night (May 22), and marked a special one-off show from the singer-songwriter to celebrate 10 years since the release of his now iconic sophomore album, ‘X’.To mark the milestone, Sheeran broke out a complete rendition of the album’s tracklist at the venue – launching with opening track ‘One’, and proceeding to play the release in its entirety, start to finish.As well as fan favourites including ‘Photograph’, ‘Sing’ and ‘Thinking Out Loud’, the setlist also saw Sheeran perform a number of songs for the first time in years, and break out some of the tracks for their first-ever live rendition.Both ‘New York’ and ‘Nina’ for instance, were given an airing out for the first time in 10 years – with Sheeran last performing them both just after his second album dropped.It was a similar case for ‘Runaway’, ‘The Man’, ‘Afire Love’ and ‘English Rose’, which all got played at the Brooklyn venue for the first time since 2015.

40 UK festivals have now been cancelled this summer – with over 170 disappearing in five years

here.The report from AIF also comes after NME looked into why so many UK festivals have been cancelled or postponed in recent years, and spoke to industry experts to shed light on the rapid decline.It highlighted how Herefordshire’s Nozstock Hidden Valley announced that 2024 would be their final incarnation after 26 years due to “soaring costs” and financial risk”, and Shepton Mallet skating and music festival NASS announced that they wouldn’t be putting on an event this summer either as it was “just not economically feasible to continue”.Others mentioned were the cancelled Dumfries’ Doonhame Festival, Bluedot – which announced a year off for the land to “desperately” recover after being struck by heavy rain and cancellations last summer – Nottingham’s Splendour, which was canned this year due to planning delays from a financially-struggling city council, and Barn On The Farm shared that it would be taking a fallow year due to financial constraints.Discussing the issues at hand, co-manager for the latter, Oscar Matthews, told NME: “From our perspective, the festival in 2023 itself was brilliant – it was a really successful year – but we were hit majorly on a financial level by a mix of increased production costs and a very big reduction in ticket sales,” he said.

BBC respond to Eurovision complaints: “Some aspects of the broadcast…didn’t appeal to everyone”

BBC has responded to complaints about this year’s Eurovision coverage saying “some aspects of the broadcast…didn’t appeal to everyone.”Viewer ratings for this year’s competition plunged amid multiple controversies and calls for a boycott.This year, the contest faced criticism for its inclusion of Israel amid their role in the ongoing Israel-Palestine conflict.Due to this political neutrality clause, the EBU announced they reserved the right to remove Palestinian flags and symbols, and would go on to censor Irish contestant Bambie Thug for wearing the word ‘ceasefire’ and ‘freedom for Palestine’ as a hidden message on their costume.Israel’s inclusion prompted boycott calls from the LGBT+ community towards UK entry Olly Alexander, reasoning that the competition was “providing cultural cover and endorsement for the catastrophic violence that Israel has unleashed on Palestinians.”Over 1,000 Swedish artists called for Israel to be banned this year – including Robyn, Fever Ray, and First Aid Kit – and more than 1,400 Finnish music industry professionals have signed a petition to ban the country from taking part in the contest as well.
