Going for Ed Sheeran's concert in Mumbai? Here's what you need to know..

Ed Sheeran's Mumbai concert is just 2 days away and we cannot wait! The pop sensation who rocked the music world with his hits like Shape of You, Perfect, The A Team and more, is all set for his India tour.

After a slight scare that his India tour might be cancelled due to a bike accident, Ed Sheeran has resumed his Divide world tour. With the concert to be held at Reliance Jio Garden in BKC and an expected 10,000 'sheerios', here are some things to keep in mind.

Getting there and about the venue

  • Gates open at 5pm and Ed Sheeran will take the stage by 8. There shouldn't be a line at the box-office since most ticket holders have got their tickets by mail. Gates will be open till 9pm(late comers, take note!)
  • Bags and outside food and drinks won't be allowed but you can get RFID cards at the venue and make cashless payments for food and drinks(alcohol too) inside Jio Garden.
  • Ofcourse, keep your phone charged and carry battery packs for your Instagram and Snapchat.
  • No VIP enclosures but you will be restricted to your zone depending on your ticket(silver, gold, etc.)
  • Ample parking is available at and around the venue.
  • And as for all concerts, this too is a No-Smoking venue!

This is how you can get free tickets to the Ed Sheeran concert

Pre-drinks scenes 

BKC ain't short of bars to hop into to get the party going and considering traffic before the event, it might be best to stick to that area. Here are some of our favourite bars in BKC:

BSE, Kurla - get there early to take advantage of those low prices. The concert is just a 5 minute rickshaw ride away

Burn - if you're feeling fancy and don't mind spending a bit more

True Tramm Trunk - your usual pot-work hangout can be your pre-drinks scene for the day

Capital Social - cause who doesn't like social?

Post-concert hunger pangs

You're going to be at the venue for a while and all the dancing does get exhausting, check out these restaurants for a quick bite not too far from Jio Garden:

Pizza Express - those authentic pizzas just hit the spot

Yauatcha - best Chinese in town? Crispy prawn Cheung-fun anyone?

SodaBottleOpenerWala - for the Parsi bawa in you

Busago - cause there's nothing like some comforting Thai curry after a tiring day

For those of you who are Book My Show 'Superstar' customers, you get Rs. 200 already on your RFID cards, special box-office, entry to the Superstar sundowner and dinner reservations at a discounted price.

This is going to be one helluva concert and probably the biggest of the year, so get your plans together and see you there this Sunday evening.
