Ed Sheeran is returning to London for the first time since his sold-out run at Wembley Stadium in July 2015.
The singer plays The O2 on 1 and 2 May as part of the worldwide tour in support of his forthcoming third studio album, ‘÷’.
Tickets go on general sale on 2 February.
Sheeran has kicked off 2017 with his dual singles ‘Shape Of You’ and ‘Castle On The Hill’ hitting the #1 and #2 spots across charts worldwide and setting Spotify records for biggest-ever ‘one week’ and ‘one day’ streams for a track, globally.
The comeback, after a year-long break from the public eye, continues the success of his second album ‘x’, which earned two Grammy awards for the single ‘Thinking Out Loud’, and saw him become the first artist to headline Wembley Stadium without a band, playing to 240 000 people over three consecutive nights.
But the 25-year-old singer-songwriter, who penned Justin Bieber’s 2015 single ‘Love Yourself, is no stranger to big stages. In 2012 he performed ‘Wish You Were Here’ members of Pink Floyd and Genesis at the London Olympics’ closing ceremony and in 2015 he took part in the Grammy tribute for Stevie Wonder alongside Beyonce and Gary Clark Jr.
‘÷’ will be released on 3 March.
