Ed Sheeran Announces Fall Tour Dates

Ed Sheeran has announced a second leg to his North American tour, kicking off at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston, TX, on September 3.

The month-long trek includes some of the GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter’s biggest headlining shows in North America to date.

Pre-sale tickets will be available for select dates starting on April 6, followed by general public on-sale tickets starting on April 10. For more ticket information and tour updates, please visit www.edsheeran.com.

Sheeran’s summer tour is already proving to be a phenomenal success with most dates selling out in a matter of minutes, including Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, Newark’s Prudential Center, and back-to-back nights at the iconic Hollywood Bowl.

The North American dates – which also include top billing at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis, Rock in Rio USA in Las Vegas, and Summerfest in Milwaukee - are part of Sheeran’s highly successful worldwide tour which culminates with three sold out nights at London’s Wembley Stadium.

Sheeran is still riding high with the chart-topping success of his current single “Thinking Out Loud.” Already one of the biggest songs of 2015, “Thinking Out Loud” has earned Sheeran the highest charting of his career at multiple formats, going to #1 at Top 40, Hot AC, and Adult radio, as well as holding the #2 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for a staggering eight consecutive weeks.

“Thinking Out Loud” has also enjoyed global success, having gone to #1 in 9 countries around the world, including his native United Kingdom, while the beautifully-shot companion music video – directed by longtime collaborator Emil Nava – has already amassed over 368 million views worldwide. “Thinking Out Loud” is the third single from Sheeran’s RIAA-certified platinum album x (pronounced multiply), which recently won “Best British Album” at the 2015 BRIT Awards and was nominated for “Album Of The Year” at the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards.

Recently, Sheeran unveiled the companion music video for the song “Bloodstream” - a collaboration with fellow BRIT Award winner and Atlantic labelmate Rudimental, who are currently finishing their second studio album. The cinematic video – directed by Nava and starring acclaimed actor Ray Liotta – was filmed exclusively for this year’s YouTube Music Awards (in association with Vice), which celebrates acts with the biggest growth in views, subscriptions and/or interactions with fans over the last six months. Sheeran recently performed the original version of “Bloodstream” - which appears on his album x – at the 2015 BRIT Awards.
