"TRL" Returns: MTV Giving Away Ed Sheeran 2018 Tour Tickets
MTV's "Total Request Live" has officially returned, and the show's very first special guest had a big surprise for one lucky fan on his way into the brand-new "TRL" studios in Times Square yesterday.
The rebooted show's first major guest was none other than GRAMMY winner Ed Sheeran, and as he walked through a screaming crowd to enter the new studio, he picked a fan at random and gifted then with tickets to their hometown show on his upcoming 2018 stadium tour.
Following the show, MTV announced that it would be following the singer/songwriter's lead by giving away pairs of tickets to every single upcoming U.S. date of Sheeran's tour.
The contest will be run via MTV's Instagram account, and the network plans to drop questions related to happenings on this week's daily episodes of "TRL." The answers to the questions will spell out a secret word related to Sheeran's career. Fans must then comment on the posts with the answer and their preferred city.
The contest will run until Oct. 20. Full details are available on MTV's website.
