Only 3 gigs to end the North American Tour. Last night in Columbus, Ohio, James performed 'Make Me Better' for the 1st time with Ed Sheeran. Hopefully, someone has the full video somewhere. Here's a snippet:

Poor image quality but the sound is good - 'Make Me Better' James & Ed

Full set in Sacramento, California 01/08/2017 - Not a high quality video but it gives a good idea if you haven't got a chance to attend any gigs on the North American Tour.

The song 'OK' performed live from Cities 97's Studio C is in the tracklist of this album. Cities 97 is a local radio station in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Album to be released on November 17th.

Cities 97 Sampler Vol. 29 (2017)

The annual Cities 97 Sampler is more than just a collection of music; it's an intimate peek behind the scenes of Studio C and a powerful vehicle for supporting amazing local charitable organizations, but none of it would be possible without your generosity.

One more live video from the North American Tour.

"OK" - Live from Tampa, Florida
Although a Robin Schulz hit featuring James Blunt, this song was originally written by James for his album The Afterlove, but never made the cut. Here is a live performance of that version.

In my humble opinion, this kind of situation is beyond ridiculous. Posted on Twitter less than an hour before the show. It's not like a handful of tickets, over 300 tickets just released by Ticketmaster. Shame on you promoters and official tickets sellers for how you treat the fans.

JUST IN: over 300 tickets for tonight's @edsheeran show have just been released!!!

Well, it's over. The last chorus has been sung, the last CD autographed, the last promotional interview posted to Youtube. Three and a half months of exposure as the opening act for the world's most popular musician - it's going to be one heck of an afterparty tonight.

James has done a brilliant job taking advantage of this opportunity. He performed for hundreds of thousands more people on this tour than he could have reached on his own - and those people have bought his album, tapped their toes, and took OK to #1 in the Billboard Dance Club Charts. (Seriously...did anyone have "James will have a Dance hit in 2017" in the pool?) The reviews for his performances have been excellent - many times more than the single sentence that is usually devoted to the support act - and he has taken advantage of just about every promotional opportunity that has come along, with those little codas for "lucky winners", the radio spots, the TV, the print/online media. Here's hoping it's created enough of an opening that we'll get to see him in North America as the headliner a year from now.

I hope James, too, feels this tour has been a success.

Amen to that, Annec.

Now that the N. Am. tour has wrapped, allow me ...

James Blunt & Ed Sheeran concerts in Tulsa and D.C bookended the most wild & surreal month of my life.

As I stood in the arena in Tulsa, Hurricane Harvey was about to roar into my life.

After the gig, we returned to badly-clobbered Houston to find our neighborhood under water and our house submerged in chest-deep water for 2 weeks.

After finally securing a kayak, we donned fishing waders and rowed down our street to our house, shoved open the swollen front door and were greeted by ... a duck ... floating amongst the furniture and debris in my house.

When the water finally receded, we spent the next couple weeks frantically tearing out the walls and gutting the cabinetry down to the wooden studs, and throwing the lion's share of our possessions into a mountainous heap on our front lawn for the bulldozers to haul away.

It was a surreal sight of front-end loaders and giant-claw bulldozers working in tandem in an odd bulldozer ballet.

While the drenched house-frame was drying, we hopped a plane to see James Blunt and Ed Sheeran in Washington DC.
Which was a badly-needed breath of normal.

And maybe it was my wishful imagination running away with me, but lo and behold it looked like Karl Brazil, Ben Castle and Malcolm Moore back on stage with their ol mate! What a warm sight for sore eyes.

Was I going mad?!

I don't know, but being amongst fellow music-lovers, eating up the songs of my two favorite musicians was exactly where I needed to be.

Thank you to James (and Ed) for the ride.

I needed it.

@MSF-Fan - I'm sorry to read that you have to face such level of devastation in your house. Surreal month for sure but also life-changing experience. Sending you my warmest thoughts. ((Hugs))

Here's a short Facebook live video that James posted Saturday night. Footage of him and the band/crew backstage waiting for the last opening of the Ed Sheeran tour in North America to start in Nashville. In his interview for "Today in Nashville", he said "I can honestly say, it's probably been the best tour I've never had in my entire life."

Interview by Swiftcast, huge fans of Taylor Swift in the U.S.
Swifties, Sheerios and Bedlamites unite!

Episode 226 - James Blunt on Ed Sheeran's Divide Tour!

Last week, Taylor posted a Spotify playlist of all her recent favorite songs! One song featured on it was "Love Me Better" by James Blunt, the British singer-songwriter best known for his 2005 hit, "You're Beautiful."

We were lucky enough to sit down with him in Nashville, where he was opening for the legendary Ed Sheeran on the North American leg of his Divide Tour. Tune in for our chat with James where we cover everything from writing songs with Ryan Tedder, to highlights of touring with Ed, and even the loaded question of his favorite Taylor Swift song!

https://www.theswiftcast.com/episode-226

Around 16:06, James mentioned they are talking about coming back to the States again, and Canada hopefully, if he's invited to (after the Asia tour). Looking at his schedule, there's space in April, May, June 2018. We'll have to stay tune for more info.

According to this post, Johnny Boy is leaving the US tour, must be the reason why Malcolm is joining the band.
