Ed Sheeran has just announced he will be returning to Dublin in April 2017.

The singer will be taking off on a tour of Europe and the UK to mark the release of his new album Divide.

Ed will be playing in Dublin’s 3Arena on April 12th and 13th 2017. Tickets are going on sale on Thursday 2nd February at 10am. There will be a limited number of tickets available through his website this coming Tuesday 31st Jan at 10am.

Ed delivered a warning to fans about news of false ticket prices:

“The prices for tickets have not been announced yet so anything you’re reading is fake,” he tweeted.

Promotions company Aiken Promotions issued a warning about fraudulent websites and ticket sellers

“Tickets on any secondary sites cannot be confirmed as valid tickets,” said Peter Aiken. The warning said that fan buying from third party sites / secondary sellers can suffer huge financial loss and disappointment. Fans could potentially arrive at the venue having been sold counterfeit tickets and be refused entry.

This tour is set to be one of the most highly-anticipated tours of 2017. Ed’s two Dublin gigs will be his first shows in Ireland since his two sold out dates at Croke Park in 2015.

Ed will be touring non-stop from March until May this year after returning to the music scene on January following a year-long break.

Ed released two singles at the beginning of the year, “Shape of You” and “Castle on the Hill” both debuted at the top of the UK singles charts, making Ed the only artist in UK chart history to do so.
