Ed Sheeran has announced his first UK and Ireland stadium shows for 2022, and next year can't come soon enough.
Global star and Glastonbury headliner Ed Sheeran has revealed a string of shows across the UK and Europe for his new '+ – = ÷ x' tour.
Set to take place next year, the new tour will be in support his high-anticipated new album Equals or =.
Sheeran will return to the stage for the first time since his ÷ came to an end in 2019, which became the highest-grossing tour of all time.
The tour will see the Ipswich singer-songwriter play 15 dates across the UK and Ireland, including three dates at Wembley Stadium, alongside a further 11 dates spanning Europe.
Along the way he'll also be performing in Belfast, Cardiff, Glasgow, Manchester, and Sunderland with dates in Paris, Amsterdam, Zurich, Munich, and Warsaw further afield.
The UK leg of the tour starts in April 2022 and will conclude in July with an epic show at Wembley Stadium where Sheeran will be staged in the round, seeing the audience completely surround him.
Ed Sheeran's new album = is set for release on 29th October via Asylum/Atlantic, with singles 'Bad Habits' and 'Shivers' dominating airwaves since their release.
