Sheeran, 26, will perform two dates at London’s Wembley Stadium on June 15 and 16.

It will be the first time the singer has performed at Wembley since 2015, when he became the first artist to play the stadium solo (with just his loop pedal and guitar as accompaniment) over three consecutive, sold out nights.

The singer hinted at more dates being added to the tour, teasing fans by tweeting: “That’s not the end of the stadium tour, watch this space.”
