Ed Sheeran announces 2018 Stadium Tour

FOLLOWING his triumphant Glastonbury Festival headline performance, Ed Sheeran is delighted to announce his nationwide 2018 UK stadium tour, marking the biggest tour of his career to date! Kicking off at Belfast's Boucher Playing Fields, on 9 May 2018, Ed will follow with shows in the Etihad Stadium, Manchester, on 24 May 2018. He will finish the tour at Cardiff's Principality Stadium, on 22 June 2017. General sale commences, on Saturday, 8 July 2017, at 10am, aside from Belfast, which will be on sale, at 9am, on the same date, at:-

NB - there are no presales for this tour. All tickets will only become available, on Saturday, 8 July 2017, at 10am, aside from Belfast, which will be available, at 9am, on the same date.

Ed's 2018 tour news; which is on course to become the UK's biggest tour routing of 2018; closely follows the troubadours' phenomenal Glastonbury headline performance. Commanding thousands, at the Pyramid Stage, on Sunday evening, pulling in 1 of the festivals' biggest ever crowds, and with over 3 million viewers tuning in from home, Ed continues his rise as one of the world's most successful and unique musical talents. Next year's tour will see 26 year old Sheeran return to Wembley Stadium for the first time since his record breaking stint in 2015, when he became the 1st ever artist to play the stadium solo [with just his loop pedal and guitar] over 3 consecutive, sold out nights.

Released in March this year, Ed's 3rd studio album:- 'divide' reigns as 2017's biggest selling album of the year thus far, having sold over 8 million copies, globally, in the space of three months: 2 million sales come from the UK alone. Not to mention Ed's gigantic comeback single:- 'Shape of You' which is discribed as a track that has surpassed 1.5 BILLION streams in less than 6 months!

It was recently announced that Ed, who was recently awarded a Songwriters Hall of Fame 2017 Hal David Starlight Award for his contribution to music, is soon to be honoured with an MBE for his services to music and charity.
