Ed will be Storytellers first artist to showcase and talk about his songs to fans. His storytelling will go down at his January 24th concert in Dublin, Ireland.
The show will still give artists the chance to tell fans the stories behind their songs, and will also for the first time ever be aired on VH1 TV. What's even more rad than all of that, is that the artists get to pick the venue they want to do the gig at. It has to be a place that means something to them. Cool, right? Ed is playing at Whelan's in Dublin because it was the place where he met singer Damien Rice.
"I was only about 11 or 12 years old when I saw Damien [Rice] play at Whelan's, and that night literally changed my life. The time he spent talking with me after the show made all the difference. It inspired me in a way that I only hope to do for someone else," he said.
More artists who will appear on this season of VH1 Storytellers Live will be announced soon. We REALLY hope Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift get the gig, too.
