Ed Sheeran to perform at Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park for NFL Kickoff

Grammy Award-winning musician Ed Sheeran will be performing at the 2021 NFL Kickoff Experience presented by EA Sports Madden NFL 22 ahead of the league’s season opener between the Dallas Cowboys and defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday, Sept. 9.

Y’all ready to swoon over your Champa Bay Buccaneers? Because when we talk about the “Shape of You” we’re referencing the Lombardi Trophy.


The festivities will commence at noon at Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park and feature football-themed interactive games, photo opportunities and other activities throughout the day. Parts of Sheeran’s performance, which is set for 7pm, will air on NBC and during NFL Network’s pregame coverage, while a full stream will be available on the NFL’s Facebook page, and the NFL app.

Fans in attendance are encouraged to stick around after the show to watch Cowboys-Bucs live on screens throughout the park at the 2021 NFL Kickoff Watch Party.

Access to Kickoff Experience and the Watch Party is free and open to the public. The NFL OnePass app is required for admission and will be available in the coming weeks.
