Record attendance and cheesesteaks at Philips


Ed Sheeran told Saturday’s record-breaking crowd at Lincoln Financial Field he doesn’t have any hobbies, but after his tour through Philadelphia, it looks like he could easily pick up a new one: making cheesesteaks.

The globally famous British singer-songwriter turned up Saturday afternoon at Philips Steaks on West Passyunk Avenue, where he delighted fans and staff by trying his hand at prepping the signature Philly sandwich.

“The line stretched, oh my God, maybe two blocks,” Joseph Baldino, who owns and operates the cheesesteak shop with his brother Philip, told Billy Penn.

“When his team reached out, I actually thought it was almost a joke,” said Baldino, who described himself as a “huge fan” of Sheeran’s. “We are 40 years in business, but this is the first celebrity of his magnitude.”
