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 9th May, Ed will follow with shows in Manchester (Etihad Stadium 24th May), Glasgow (Hampden Park 1st June), Newcastle (St James’ Park 8th June) and London (two concerts at Wembley Stadium 15th and 16th June), before closing at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium on 22nd June.

Ed’s 2018 tour news, which is on course to become the UK’s biggest tour routing of next year, closely follows the troubadours’ phenomenal Glastonbury headline performance. Commanding thousands at the Pyramid Stage on Sunday evening; pulling in one of the festivals’ biggest-ever crowds, and with over three 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 first-ever artist to play the stadium solo [with just his loop pedal and guitar] over three consecutive, sold out nights.

Released in March this year, Ed’s third studio album ÷ (pronounced ‘divide’) reigns as 2017’s biggest-selling album of the year thus far, having sold over eight million copies, globally, in the space of three months; two million sales come from the UK alone. Not to mention Ed’s gigantic comeback single Shape Of You; a track that has surpassed 1.5 billion streams in less than six 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.
