The singer-songwriter posted the above photo Oct. 16 via Instagram after reportedly breaking his arm in a bicycle incident. Sheeran stated that he “had a bit of an accident”, and also said that it may affect upcoming shows. With more than one million likes on the photo, fans are eagerly hoping for a swift recovery and sending well wishes to the star.
Along with the get-well notes to the star, musician John Mayer and actor Zach Braff both offered to step in for Sheeran.
As much as Mayer would like to help he is hoping he won’t be needed. Braff also offered up his triangle playing skills for the upcoming shows as well. Both good friends of Sheeran, its no wonder they offered to step in to lend a hand.
Sheeran is scheduled to perform at Taipei Nangang Exhibition Hall Oct. 22. With so little time before the concert, fans are left wondering about whether or not the show will go on. Sheeran, a dedicated man to his followers, will no doubt have them in mind when making that decision.
Whether or not Sheeran has to reschedule upcoming shows, there is a collective agreement in hoping that he heals up soon. Let’s be real though, how great would it be to see a show with Ed Sheeran singing, John Mayer on the guitar and Zach Braff playing the triangle? It would be unforgettable to say the least.
*Update via Sheeran’s Instagram Oct. 17, stating that “a visit to the doctors confirmed fractures in right wrist and left elbow that will leave [Sheeran] unable to perform live concerts for the immediate future. Sadly, this means that the following shows will not be able to go ahead as planned: Taipei, Osaka, Seoul, Tokyo and Hong Kong.” The shows beyond that date will depend on Sheeran’s healing process.
