Ed Sheeran Announces North America Arena Tour: See The Dates

b46611c8943dfa4d2e3d4fbdfad47639 Ed Sheeran Announces North America Arena Tour: See The Dates

From Saturday Night Live to a stadium near you: Ed Sheeran has announced his first-ever headlining arena tour of North America, to follow the June 23 release of his sophomore LP x. The tour starts August 22 in Seattle and wraps September 18 in Toronto, though more dates are to come.

Sheeran’s tour fulfills a goal that he recently disclosed when talking about x and three sold-out nights at Madison Square Garden, a feat for any solo singer-songwriter – “I want to headline a stadium,” as he told Billboard. (Previously, he held the opening slot for Taylor Swift‘s Red Tour.) Meanwhile, on April 12 on SNL, Sheeran previewed how x would sound live by performing lead single “Sing” and a new song called “Don’t.” Both songs show that he’s beefed up his acoustic folk-meets-hip-hop roots, the former being produced by Pharrell and the latter channeling one of Pharrell’s key influences, new jack swing pioneer Teddy Riley (Blackstreet, Bobby Brown, Michael Jackson‘s Dangerous).

Pre-sale tickets for Sheeran’s stops in Toronto, Boston and Chicago go on sale on April 22, while other dates are available starting April 25. See the full list of tour dates after the jump.
