Sing And Dance Your Way To ED Sheeran’s Concert Live In Malaysia With Hotlink!
Fans of Ed Sheeran can now sing and dance to their hearts' content for a chance to see the British singer-songwriter perform in his first ever concert in Malaysia by taking part in Hotlink's ED Everywhere! Contest. As the presenter of the concert, which will take place on 16 March 2015 at the KL Convention Centre, Hotlink will be giving away concert tickets, meet & greet passes, backstage tour passes and merchandise to the winners of the contest, which is currently ongoing till 8 March 2015. The contest is open to Hotlink customers.
The ED Everywhere! Contest was inspired by a video that instantly went viral of a fan dressed up as 'Spiderman', dancing to Ed Sheeran's song 'Don't' while 'pleading' for tickets to the concert. The video, which was posted by Louis Megami on his Facebook page on 9 February, has since reached more than 400,000 views on multiple pages. Friends and strangers who came across the video of "Spidey" dancing in the LRT, all came together and rooted for him to get tickets. Hotlink picked up on this viral sensation and awarded him with a pair of tickets for his effort. Click here to watch the video: http://youtu.be/tL4krf1PMAU
