A massive statue of Ed Sheeran has appeared in Moscow, Russia, ahead of the pop star’s concert there this week. As seen in a photo shared by Billboard, the tribute depicts Sheeran laying on his side, propped up on one arm while sporting shades, red shorts, white socks, and a shirt with his name all over it. Fans have also begun to customize the statue with fresh tattoos. The artwork is located in Moscow's Gorky Park and was put up by the Russian music streaming service Yandex.Music. Sheeran is set to perform at the Otkritie Arena this Friday, July 19.
