ED SHEERAN is playing two shows this month in Leeds.

The superstar singer-songwriter plays Roundhay Park on Friday and Saturday, August 16 and 17, as part of his Divide tour culminating in Ipswich in a concert in Ipswich on Bank Holiday Monday.

A spokesman said: “Sheeran’s Divide tour has entered record books all over the world and seen him dominate the live sphere over recent years, becoming one of the most in-demand live acts of all time.

“By the end of Sheeran’s 2019 homecoming dates, Ed will have sold two million tickets on the Divide tour in his native UK.

“Not forgetting this year’s UK stadium run – the UK’s biggest-ever solo tour without a band, which included four sold-out nights at London’s Wembley Stadium.”

Ed also announced numerous 2019 European dates this year, following a sold-out South Africa tour. that saw him visit the country for the first time.

The homecoming shows mark the end of Sheeran’s ‘Divide’ campaign – an award-winning album that has exceeded 15.5 million global sales, spawned an array of global No.1 singles including “Shape of You” and “Perfect”.
