Ed Sheeran’s concerts at MetLife Stadium are happening as planned. The shows will take place on Saturday, June 10, and Sunday, June 11. Despite the air quality emergency caused by Canadian wildfires, the stadium has confirmed that the concerts will proceed as scheduled. They will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates if needed.
The air quality in New Jersey and the Northeast was affected by smoke from forest fires in Quebec. However, the forecast indicates that the low-pressure system causing the smoke will move on Saturday, improving the air quality. Although it’s uncertain if the emergency will affect Sheeran’s pre-show theater performances, it is known that he played at The Met in Philadelphia before his shows in Philly.
The concerts are part of Ed Sheeran’s North American leg of the “+ – = ÷ x Tour,” also known as “The Mathematics Tour.” Khalid and Dylan are also part of the lineup for the in-the-round shows. Sheeran’s set usually lasts around two hours and 15 minutes, with his performance starting around 8 p.m.
For those attending the concerts, it’s important to note the event schedule and parking/transportation information. The parking lots will open at 1 p.m., and the gates will open at 4:30 p.m. The event itself will begin at 6 p.m., with Ed Sheeran taking the stage around 8 p.m. and the show ending around 10:30 p.m. The parking cost on the day of the event is $40 per car and $160 per Bus/RV.
Various transportation options are available, including NJ Transit trains, Coach USA buses, and rideshare services like Uber and Lyft. However, there might be longer wait times and surge pricing for rideshares due to the large crowds. It’s advisable to plan accordingly and be prepared for potential delays.
