A message on Ed’s website states: “You are required to bring your tickets, booking confirmation and credit card, plus a form of ID or you may not be granted entry to the show. Your ticket is not valid if resold unless it’s through our official face-value resale partner Twickets.”
Ed has also confirmed that this is just the beginning of his stadium tour. Sit tight for more locations to be announced.

2017 has been a stellar year for the mighty Ed Sheeran. Since making his comeback in January with ‘Shape of You’ and ‘Castle on the Hill’, he’s broken countless records. Many of these came after releasing his latest album Divide, where Ed became the first artist to have all 16 album tracks chart in the UK top 20.
Ed is currently in the middle of his world tour, having recently wrapped up his UK and European dates. He’s also performed at various high profile events, from Glastonbury to The Grammys to The Brits, and made a long-awaited appearance on Carpool Karaoke with James Corden. He’s also just been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List!
With Australian dates already penned in for 2018, in addition to the newly announced UK and European stadium tour, Ed’s reign looks set to continue for the foreseeable. What else can he possibly achieve? We’ll have to wait and see.
