International singer, Ed Sheeran, took to the tranquil surrounds of Table Mountain in Cape Town to prepare himself for his big debut at the sold out-performances in the Mother City kicking off tonight.
There's no better place to be when you need to recollect your thought and get your mind set for a big show, which is why Ed Sheeran took a blanket and a good book to enjoy on top of Table Mountain on Tuesday.
He did this while the final touches to the stage were being set up at Cape Town Stadium ahead of his two sold-out concerts, that kick off tonight and then again tomorrow evening.
The British singer and songwriter took to his Twitter account to share pics of him on Table Mountain. The pics were shot by his bodyguard, Kevin Myers. Check out his post below.
Ed Sheeran posted the pic to his 27.8 million followers on Instagram and wrote:
"I went to read my book up Table Mountain today and @securitykev took some pictures of me without me knowing, so here they are."
The last photograph that Ed Sheeran posted was a selfie that Kevin took. By the looks of things, Ed Sheeran and his bodyguard are pretty close buddies. Kevin calls him bae and even his own Instagram account describes him as a "Triple A rated protective security officer for a hobbit".
According to TshisaLive, Ed Sheeran fever is expected to disrupt Cape Town traffic this evening and tomorrow evening. The city council has urged concert-goers to use free shuttle services to the Cape Town Stadium and Thibault Square.
They also said public transport services operating in Green Point and the CBD may be subjected to localised deviations from 4pm until midnight on both days.
Two days ago, Briefly.co.za reported that Ed Sheeran has South Africans demanding that he get citizenship after he showed his genuine love for the country over the weekend.
Not only did he rock a Springbok jersey at his Johannesburg concert, but he was also spotted at the cricket in a Proteas jersey.
Ed clearly wanted to immerse himself in our culture because he did thorough research on what the people of Mzansi love. Briefly.co.za reported that he put on a Springbok jersey halfway through his performance at the FNB Stadium on Saturday night and the crowd loved it.
The very next day, the muso popped by to watch the Proteas beat Sri Lanka, wearing a proudly Proteas shirt.
