It’s official — Ed Sheeran is on his way to Suncorp Stadium.

After dropping some particularly unsubtle hints earlier this week, Frontier Touring have confirmed that Ed Sheeran will play a series of massive stadium dates in Australia.

Despite the size of the shows, they’re still likely to sell very, very quickly — the man has amassed six billion YouTube views and 70 million online followers, after all, and he’s sold hundreds of thousands of tickets across his four previous Australian and New Zealand tours.

÷, Sheeran’s third album, was released in March, debuting at number one in Australia, the US, the UK, and just about every major market. The first two singles from the album, Shape Of You and Castle on the Hill, broke records here and overseas by debuting in the top two positions on the singles chart.

This will be Sheeran’s first Brisbane show since 2015.

Ed Sheeran will play Suncorp Stadium on Tuesday 20 March 2018. Pre-sale tickets go on sale for Frontier members on Tuesday 16 May, before tickets go on sale to the general public on Tuesday 23 May at ticketek.com.au.
