The Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter will play a string of huge live shows in October, including two nights at The O2 in London, in support of his forthcoming new album.

Of his October live dates, the multi-platinum selling The A Team star said: “I can’t wait to tour this new record, it’s been a long time coming.”

“Looking forward to touring the UK and Ireland once again.’’

Sheeran famously filmed his Lego House video at the Forum in Hatfield, with Hertfordshire-based Harry Potter star Rupert Grint also appearing in it as an obsessed fan.

Masterfully blending soulful vocals with organic folk introspection and irresistible hip-hop hooks, the 22-year old’s debut album “+” entered the UK charts at number one. It is now certified six times platinum.

The singer-songwriter is also a two-time BRIT Award winner, recipient of an Ivor Novello Award for ‘Best Song Musically and Lyrically’ for The A Team, and has gone on to become a global star.

His ever-growing USA fan base has resulted in back-to-back, sold-out headlining tours of North America. After hitting arenas and stadiums around the country as main support on Taylor Swift’s North American RED Tour, Sheeran returned to New York City for a trio of sold-out headlining shows at the world-famous Madison Square Garden.

Hand-picked by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson, Sheeran also wrote, produced and recorded I See Fire, an original song for the film The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

Sheeran capped an amazing year with a pair of nominations for the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, including one for ‘Best New Artist’.
