New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
This morning Capital FM announced the final name for Capital's Jingle Bell Ball with Coca-Cola - and it was only global SUPERSTAR Ed Sheeran, no less - and of course we're already totally SOLD OUT! The annual festive event is set to be attended by more than 30,000 music fans next month at London's The O2 arena on Sunday December 10. Tickets for the two-day extravaganza sold out within 45 minutes this morning (November 9).
Speaking to Capital's Roman Kemp about the gig, Sheeran said: "I always love playing Capital's Jingle Bell Ball. Playing a multi-artist show like that, you just get to meet so many cool people that you would never have met otherwise, and Capital always put on a great production. It always looks really good. For me, it's how the stage looks and the lighting. It's a really, really good show to go to and definitely massive value for money because you get to see 10 or 11 acts that can all fill that arena."
The 26-year-old UK singer-songwriter will join a host of other huge names, including: Sam Smith, Rita Ora, Jonas Blue, James
Arthur, Jax Jones, Yungen, Niall Horan, Major Lazer, Anne-Marie, Craig David
and Dua Lipa.
Sheeran's pal Taylor Swift
will also be performing at the event, which is set to be her only European show of the year on the Sunday.
The Chainsmokers, Louisa Johnson, Stefflon Don, Mabel, James
Hype and Matt Terry, The Script
and DJ Sigala
are also set to perform on the Sunday.
Listeners can follow @CapitalOfficial and #CapitalJBB on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat to keep up with all the latest from the event.
