‘X’ MARKS THE SPOT FOR SHEERAN’S STADIUM DEBUT

Ed Sheeran is set play Wembley Stadium connected by EE for three nights as part of his ‘x’ World Tour next month, and ticket holders to the sold out gigs can get to his shows hassle-free thanks to Big Green Coach.

Winner of two BRIT Awards and an Ivor Novello Award, Sheeran has already sold out his trio of Wembley shows, from 10-12 July. Fans heading to the shows can get straight to the action with Official Coach Partner Big Green Coach.

The largest events travel company in the UK is picking up from 25 locations; Birkenhead, Birmingham, Bournemouth, Brighton, Bristol, Cardiff, Chelmsford, Chester, Colchester, Coventry, Crawley, Ipswich, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Manchester, Newport, Norwich, Nottingham, Reading, Sheffield, Southampton, Stockport, Swansea and Swindon. All coaches are scheduled to arrive before the shows start and leave once the music has finished, so you won’t miss a second of Sheeran or his impressive line-up of support acts; OneRepublic and Foy Vance on Friday 10 July, Rudimental and Example on Saturday 11 July and OneRepublic and Passenger on Sunday 12 July.

These are Sheeran’s first headline shows since his UK tour earlier this year, where he played to 275,000 people and sold out 21 arenas. The multi-million selling, Grammy-nominated star recently achieved his second number one UK single with ‘Thinking Out Loud’, which came from his triple platinum-certified second album ‘x’ (Multiply), the biggest and fastest-selling album of 2014. The album topped the charts in the UK for eight consecutive weeks and hit the top spot in the US and across Europe, selling over three million copies worldwide to date.

Big Green Coach is offering ticket holders a cost-effective way to get to Sheeran’s gigs, with travel starting at just £23 (plus fees). As the UK’s most popular coaches for music events, Big Green Coach is all about getting the party started early; picking up from your chosen location and dropping you there after the show. Choosing to travel by coach means that you’ll get taken direct to the Wembley Stadium Official Coach Park at the gates of the stadium, avoiding the need for packed public transport and lengthy walks from stations.

Coach travel to gigs and festivals is on the rise, with more people choosing a greener and cost effective option. Big Green Coach was born from the desire to provide environmentally-friendly travel to events and with audience travel emissions to music venues being the single biggest contributor to the music industry’s environmental impact, accounting for a huge 68% of the festival sector’s total emissions, fans are becoming more savvy about their method of transport. What’s more, for every person who travels by Big Green Coach, the company sponsors and protects five square feet of Amazonian Rainforest for 10 years. In partnership with charity Cool Earth, the company has already protected 800,000 square feet – equivalent to 10 Wembley Stadiums – and has an overall target of protecting three million square feet in five years.

Getting to Ed Sheeran at Wembley Stadium couldn’t be easier – or more environmentally friendly – thanks to Big Green Coach. Tickets start at just £23 (plus fees) for a return coach and you can choose from 25 pick-up locations. To find out more and book your coach travel, visit www.biggreencoach.co.uk.
