The tour, which begins August 18th at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, California, will make additional stops in San Francisco’s AT&T Park, Detroit’s Ford Field, Pittsburgh’s PNC Park, Chicago’s Soldier Field, Nashville’s Nissan Stadium and Milwaukee’s Miller Park.

Sheeran was recently named Spotify’s most-streamed artist for 2017 and got engaged to his longtime girlfriend Cherry Seaborn.

Divide was also crowned the biggest album of 2017 by Nielsen Music, with sales equivalents exceeding 2.764 million units, and recently won Best Pop Vocal Album at the 60th Grammy Awards. Sheeran’s 8x-platinum smash “Shape Of You” also took home the trophy for Best Pop Solo Performance.

Meanwhile, Sheeran is the subject of a documentary called Songwriter, which will have its debut at this year’s Berlin Film Festival. The film, directed by Ed’s cousin, Murray Cummings, documents the creation of Ed’s hit album Divide and “provides an intimate look” at his work, according to the festival’s website. In addition to interviews with Ed himself, as well as family and friends, the film will also show the star writing a song from scratch, recording at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London, working on the album aboard the Queen Mary 2 cruise ship, and visiting his first musical mentor at his old high school.

In a clip from the film, you can see Ed performing his song “Galway Girl” in the backyard of a house, as singer/songwriter Foy Vance, a co-writer on the track, listens.

Songwriter will first screen February 23rd. It’s not clear if it’ll eventually reach theaters worldwide.

JULIA MICHAELS RELEASES ‘HEAVEN’ MUSIC VIDEO FROM ‘FIFTY SHADES FREED’ – (02/07/2018)

Julia Michaels’ song “Heaven” from the official Fifty Shades Freed original motion picture soundtrack has a brand new music video.

“They say all good boys go to #heaven …,” Julia tweeted earlier in the weekend to tease the brand new music video.

In the clip, the Grammy-nominated singer daydreams of various shirtless, good-looking men as she sings in a darkened, yet gorgeously remodeled kitchen. The men saunter in and out seductively, but by the end, it’s clear that they each have a temper.

“They say all good boys go to heaven, but bad boys bring heaven to you,” Julia sings with a mischievous smile.

Julia also has a song called “Are You” on the album. The Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack arrives on February 9th, the same day the third movie in the steamy franchise – starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan – hits theaters.

Time’s Up for bad guys. In just a little over a month, the Time’s Up initiative has raised $20 million from 20,000 donors. The money is going straight to its legal defense fund, which has been set up to help victims of workplace misconduct.

Time’s Up has been designed to help everyone, not just the members of the Hollywood elite who helped found and fund it.

  • The fund’s administrator, Tina Tchen (Michella Obama’s former chief of staff), made the announcement during a Time’s Up panel at the 2018 Makers Conference.
  • She also said that more than 1,000 people have contacted the fund for help. To help these cases get traction, more than 200 lawyers have volunteered to help.
  • The panel was moderated by Ava DuVernay. Natalie Portman, Jill Soloway, Rashida Jones, director Melina Matsoukas, CAA agent Maha Dakhil, entertainment lawyer Nina Shaw, and actress Katie McGrath also participated.
