Ed Sheeran’s first-ever tour in South Africa will take place in 2019, and he will be performing at the FNB Stadium on Saturday the 23rd and Sunday the 24th of March.
Ed continues his rise as one of the world’s most successful and talented musical talents. Selling-out stadiums across the globe, Ed recently finished his native UK run including four sold-out nights at London’s Wembley Stadium – the troubadour sold over 1.1 million tickets in the UK alone, marking one of the biggest tours the UK has ever seen!
Earlier this year, Sheeran was announced as the IFPI’s best-selling global recording artist of 2017 after the release of his record-breaking, third studio album ÷ (pronounced “divide”) last March – the LP has now sold over 15 million copies across the globe! ÷ spawned Ed’s monster hit singles Shape of You – the 3rd biggest-selling single of all time in the UK and most-streamed track of Spotify, ever – Castle on the Hill, Galway Girl and Perfect.
A songwriter of a generation, Ed was awarded a MBE for his services to music and charity at the end of 2017 and last month, Ed took home two prestigious Ivor Novello Awards for “Songwriter of the Year” and “Most Performed Work” for his monster hit Shape of You. To date, Ed has won 5 x BRIT Awards, 4 x Ivor Novello’s, 4 x Grammy’s, 6 x Billboard Music Awards and many more.
