Following his triumphant Glastonbury Festival headline performance, Ed Sheeran has announced his Nationwide 2018 Ireland stadium tour, which includes two concerts at Galway’s Pearse Stadium.
Kicking off at Corks’s Páirc Uí Chaoimh on May 4 and 5, the tour moves to Boucher Road Playing Fields in Belfast on May 9, before hitting Galway’s Pearse Stadium on May 12 and 13, followed by dates at Phoenix Park Dublin on May 16 and 18.
Ed’s 2018 tour news closely follows the troubadour’s phenomenal Glastonbury headline performance. Commanding thousands at the Pyramid Stage on Sunday evening, pulling in one of the festival’s biggest-ever crowds, and with more than three million viewers tuning in from home, Ed continues his rise as one of the world’s most successful and unique musical talents.
Released in March this year, Ed’s third studio album, ÷ (pronounced “divide” ), reigns as 2017’s biggest-selling album of the year thus far, having sold in excess of eight million copies globally in the space of three months. The album is currently seven times Platinum in Ireland, and Ed’s gigantic comeback single, Shape of You, has surpassed 1.5 billion streams in less than six months.
It was recently announced that Ed, who was awarded a Songwriters Hall of Fame 2017 Hal David Starlight Award for his contribution to music, is soon to be honoured with an MBE for his services to music and charity.
