Ed Sheeran is wrapping up a pair of shows in Saskatchewan this week. He played in Regina's Brandt Centre on Saturday night to rave reviews, and will be in Saskatoon's SaskTel Centre this evening. People around here are getting very excited, but if you are going to the show tonight, keep in mind it can be trouble getting in and out of the arena parking lot, so come early, or leave the driving to someone else and take transit (You can Park & Ride at a number of Saskatoon's malls, including Confederation Mall which is just north of 22nd St W when you get into the city.)

Ed's been a very popular artist with string of big hits this year already, but if you're not convinced that he's one of the nicest guys in music, this might steer you into that direction.

On Sunday, Ed Sheeran was in Edmonton for a tour date at Rexall Place, and before his show, he did what just about every visitor to the City of Champions would do... go to West Edmonton Mall.

The mall has a performance stage just in front of the gigantic HMV store in Phase IV, and Ed was browsing around in there when he heard a young girl performing one of his songs, "Thinking out Loud". The performer was 13-year-old Sydney Bourbeau, who was playing at a concert raising money for the Edmonton Humane Society.

What happened next was likely the biggest thrill of her life.

If you're going to tonight's show in Saskatoon, hopefully that pumps you up even more for it. We'd love to hear what you thought of the show, or the one in Regina on Saturday, on Facebook or Twitter.
