Set to be one of the most highly-anticipated tours of 2017, Ed Sheeran has announced he’ll be bringing his worldwide tour to the Barclaycard Arena.
The touring news comes straight off the back of a phenomenal few weeks for 25-year-old Ed Sheeran. Kicking-off music in 2017 and delivering the biggest musical comeback in recent years, Ed’s dual singles Shape Of You and Castle On The Hill have taken the globe by storm, hitting the #1 and #2 spots across the charts worldwide.
Ed Sheeran is an English singer-songwriter and musician. He was born in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire and raised in Framlingham, Suffolk. After dropping out of school at 16, he moved to London the following year, in 2008, to pursue a career in music. In early 2011, Sheeran independently released the extended play No. 5 Collaborations Project, which caught the attention of Elton John and Jamie Foxx.
After signing with Asylum Records, his debut album, + (read as "plus"), was released on 9 September 2011 and has since been certified six-times platinum in the UK. The album contains the single "The A Team", which earned him the Ivor Novello Award for Best Song Musically and Lyrically. In 2012, Sheeran won the Brit Awards for Best British Male Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act.
Ed Sheeran is playing at Birmingham's Barlcaycard Arena on 28-29 April.
Tickets go on sale at 10.00am on 2 February.
