Ed Sheeran will head to Ireland for huge stadium show following his three night residency at London’s Wembley Stadium.
The global star confirmed that he will headline Dublin’s Croke Park stadium on 24 July. Ed Sheeran released the news via his Twitter account with the message, “I couldn't resist it. Croke park July 24, tickets on sale next week x”
The concert will be Ed Sheeran’s biggest ever show in Ireland and follows on from his headline gigs at the iconic Wembley Stadium in London. He will perform in the capital from 10 to 12 July. Tickets are on sale here.
Last month, Ed Sheeran returned to Ireland for a special concert at Dublin’s small music venue Whelan’s. The Thinking Out Loud singer was having a nostalgic moment performing at the venue where Damien Rice, who first inspired Ed Sheeran, had previously played.
The gig was planned and filmed as part of VH1’s Storytellers television show. Watch Ed Sheeran perform at Whelan’s here.
Previously he played four sell-out nights at Dublin’s 3Arena as part of his 2014 tour in support of his multiplatinum selling album X. The collection includes his No.1 singles Sing and Thinking Out Loud, and spent an incredible 15 weeks at the top of the UK Albums Chart.
Tickets for Ed Sheeran’s Croke Park concert go on general sale on Thursday 26 February.
