Ed Sheeran Divides And Conquers

Ed Sheeran is in high demand these days. He just headlined Glastonbury last weekend and is kicking off a North American adventure tomorrow, but none of that is stopping him from planning his European tour dates for 2018.

The new Euro dates stretch more than a year from now, as he will be performing throughout the summer. His latest dates will start May 4-5 in Cork, Ireland and features two-night stands in Galway, Ireland; Dublin; and London. He also hits many other countries outside the U.K. and Ireland, ending in Warsaw, Poland, on Aug. 11.

Tickets go on sale July 8 at 9.am. for Ireland and Belfast, 10 a.m. for all U.K. shows besides Belfast, and 11 a.m. for all other dates.

Ed seems to be cracking down on scalpers, as fans will be required to bring tickets, confirmation, credit card, and ID or they might be denied entry to any show. Also, tickets are invalid if they are re-sold through any platform besides Twickets, meaning you probably shouldn’t give them to a friend to go in your place.

Ed’s latest album, ÷, has conquered music charts all over the world, and went 6x Platinum in the U.K. Sheeran’s latest showing was so dominant that some music charts are changing rules to limit an artist to three singles in the Top 40 at one time, The Sun reported.
