News: Ed Sheeran announces more shows

ed

The addition of these new shows will double Ed’s originally announced seven stadium concerts, taking it to an incredible 14-date run.  This announcement sees Sheeran becoming the joint title-holder of the most stadium shows on a single Australian and New Zealand tour, sharing the record with AC/DC’s 2010 tour.

Ed Sheeran said today “I’m overwhelmed with the response, to match that record is very humbling. I really can’t wait to get down there.”   Michael Gudinski, head of Frontier Touring said “Ed smashed ABBA’s long standing record in Australia for the most weeks at number one, with Shape Of You and now he’s matched the biggest record in touring.  He just continues to amaze me as a singer, as a songwriter, as a performer and as a good mate.”

Touring in celebration of his record-breaking and chart-topping third studio album ÷ (pronounced ‘divide’, out now through Warner Music), Sheeran will perform completely unaccompanied, joined on stage by just a guitar and effect pedals. The pull of this one-man band is an incredible experience to witness; layers of harmonies, rhythms and guitar parts cast out to a crowd of thousands who sing every lyric straight back to Sheeran.    From theatres to stadiums, Sheeran has sold out every single show on his four tours of our shores and the ÷ World Tour is sure to follow suit. Tickets go on sale at staggered times (below) on Tuesday 23 May.

Tickets for ALL concert dates and in ALL price categories will be available in the general public on-sale on Tuesday 23 May.
