British singer Ed Sheeran pushed himself to the limit by playing three gigs in Melbourne, Australia on Monday.

The “A Team” star started the day by playing a tiny show in the morning at a fan’s home in the city, singing for an intimate group of seven people and one dog as part of a competition which was won by 16-year-old schoolgirl Shiralee Dennis.

Sheeran says of the show, “Every time I do a house gig there’s a dog there. And Sienna was a lovely dog today. And they were a lovely family.”

The star’s second gig of the day took place at rock bar Ding Dong in front of 200 radio competition winners, while later in the evening he put on a larger show at the city’s Ormond Hall for a crowd of around 700.

The three-gig day came after Sheeran’s performance at the Logie TV Awards in Melbourne on Sunday night.
