Ed Sheeran will have the global premiere of his concert film debut Jumpers for Goalposts tomorrow. The special cinema event includes red carpet highlights, an exclusive live performance from Ed, and the film shown in its entirety for the first time.

Jumpers for Goalposts will be beamed via satellite, captured live from London's Leicester Square, and made available to thousands of cinema screens around the world, including Jamaica. Showtime at the Carib 5 and Palace Cineplex is 8: 30 p.m. and Palace Multiplex at 9:00 p.m.

The production brings together Ed's performances from the biggest shows of his career at Wembley Stadium in July 2015 to a crowd of 80,000 people. He performed his biggest hits to date, including The A Team, Sing, and Thinking Out Loud.

Jumpers for Goalposts is intercut with the story of Ed's road to Wembley, presenting a glimpse of life backstage and on the road, along with an honest and intimate reflection by Ed - and those closest to him - on just how far he has come over the past five years.

Following years of hard graft gigging, sleeping on sofas, and self-releasing EPs, Ed went on to sign his record deal with Asylum/Atlantic Records in 2011. Ed's debut album '+' (pronounced 'plus') was released later that year and went on to sell over two million copies in the United Kingdom. After winning two prestigious BRIT Awards (British Breakthrough Act and British Male), Ed did back-to-back, sold-out tours of North America, including a trio of headline shows at New York's legendary Madison Square Garden.

His second album 'x' (pronounced 'multiply') was released in June 2014 and became the biggest- and fastest-selling album of the year, breaking numerous records, including the most streamed album globally on Spotify last year. Six Grammy Award nominations, two Ivor Novello Award wins, and two further BRIT Award wins later (Best Male Solo Artist and Album of the Year), he is currently on a huge sold-out world tour, the UK leg of which included three nights at the prestigious Wembley Stadium.

Sheeran's new album has now gone on to sell 10 million copies worldwide so far.
