Celebrating his headline performance at Glastonbury Festival over the weekend, Ed Sheeran has confirmed some huge stadium dates across the UK for next summer. Kicking off in Belfast, Northern Ireland on the 9 May 2018, his tour will include two headline shows at London’s Wembley Stadium in June.

It marks the biggest tour of his career to date, with Ed having already headlined stadiums and arenas across the country. In 2015 he became the first ever artist to play Wembley Stadium solo over three consecutive, sold-out nights. He further cemented his popularity this weekend by attracting one of Glastonbury Festival’s biggest ever crowds, with over 3 million viewers watching from home.

The tour comes in support of latest album Divide, currently 2017’s biggest-selling album with eight million copies globally in the space of three months. He launched into the year with new music, releasing Shape Of You at the start of January; a track which has since gone on to surpass 1.5 billion streams.

His previous records have celebrated similar awards, with Ed Sheeran set to receive an MBE for his services to music and charity.
