How to get Ed Sheeran tickets for last-minute 2023 UK tour
This March is looking perfect as Ed Sheeran has announced a series of last-minute shows across the UK centred around his latest album, Subtract.
Get ready to sing! Superstar Ed Sheeran is going on tour this March and will be performing shows in Manchester, London, and Glasgow. The announcement, made earlier this month, came as a surprise to all the singer’s fans — so dive right in and follow our lead as we explain how to get tickets today.
Last week, the 32-year-old shared that he would be going on a last-minute tour across Europe, Australia and North America, with five shows planned for the UK and Ireland. The news came after Sheeran also announced his upcoming album, Subtract.
Coming out on 5th May 2023, Subtract will be the fifth and final part of the singer’s 'mathematical album era', a decade-long project which has produced a huge number of hits, including Thinking Out Loud, Shape of You, and Shivers.
When speaking of his upcoming LP, Sheeran said: “I had been working on Subtract for a decade, trying to sculpt the perfect acoustic album, writing, and recording hundreds of songs with a clear vision of what I thought it should be.”
Following the debut of his first album, Plus, in 2011, Sheeran quickly became one of the defining musical acts of the 2010’s. Since then, six of his singles have hit number one and in 2017, all 16 tracks on Divide found a place on the UK chart, with Perfect rising to Christmas number one.
