Stop everything. Ed Sheeran WILL play a fourth night at Melbourne's Etihad Stadium and a second show at Perth Stadium.
Ed Sheeran has responded to fan demand by adding a fourth Melbourne date to his 2018 Australian tour, along with a second show at Perth Stadium.
Adding the new shows in VIC and WA, Ed Sheeran tops up his sold out ÷ (divide) tour which takes him across Australia next March.
Not just that, but the new tour dates see Ed Sheeran make history by smashing the Australasian record for the largest number of stadium shows on one single tour, now with eighteen dates across Australia and New Zealand.
On the news, Ed said, “I’ve always loved coming to Australia and New Zealand. So many amazing musicians have toured there and I am humbled to have broken these records.” You can read the full release here.
Original shows were met by phenomenal demand when they went on sale this week, with the British superstar selling out three nights at Melbourne’s Etihad Stadium and another at Perth Stadium.
In keeping with his legendary status, Sheeran will perform completely unaccompanied, joined on stage by just a guitar and effect pedals. The pull of this one-man band is an incredible experience to witness; layers of harmonies, rhythms and guitar parts cast out to a crowd of thousands who sing every lyric straight back to him.
The album ÷ and its singles have already broken global streaming records and chart records in Australia: all sixteen tracks from the deluxe version of ÷ have charted in the ARIA Top 40, ÷ sits atop the ARIA Albums Chart for its seventh week while Shape Of You recently notched up a record-breaking fourteenth week at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart.
