Ed Sheeran announces NZ + AUS 2018 stadiums tour.

Ed Sheeran has announced he will be returning to New Zealand and Australia next year in March on his ÷ World Tour to play seven stadium shows, including Auckland’s Mt Smart and Dunedin’s Forsyth Barr.

Tickets go on sale from Tuesday, May 23rd - with a Frontier Members pre-sale available from Tuesday, May 16th, for 24 hours.

"Frontier Touring are delighted to welcome one of the biggest names in music back to his adopted home for seven stadium shows across Australia and New Zealand next March as part of his ÷ World Tour.

The x World Tour (2015) saw Sheeran breaking attendance records across Australia and New Zealand and garnering critical acclaim along the way. On the ÷ World Tour, Sheeran will play even bigger stadiums in Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne, return to Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland, and wrap up the tour with his first ever Dunedin show.

Touring in celebration of his record-breaking and chart-topping third studio album ÷ (pronounced ‘divide’, out now through Warner Music), Sheeran will perform completely unaccompanied, joined on stage by just a guitar and effect pedals. The pull of this one-man band is an incredible experience to witness; layers of harmonies, rhythms and guitar parts cast out to a crowd of thousands who sing every lyric straight back to Sheeran.

There’s no denying the strong and long-running connection between Sheeran and Australia and New Zealand; his debut shows in 2012 sold out in just minutes,  sophomore album x was New Zealand’s biggest-selling album in 2014 and in the following year Sheeran became the first artist to embark on national arena and stadium tours completely solo.

From theatres to stadiums, Sheeran has sold out every single show on his four tours of our shores and the ÷ World Tour is sure to follow suit. Tickets go on sale from Tuesday 23 May – act quick to secure yours!"
