Ed Sheeran reveals in a new video that he plans to tour until the end of next year. The famous English singer, songwriter, guitarist and record producer is currently touring through North America to promote his latest album ÷ (Divide).
Ed Sheeran recently gave a very special interview as the puppet protagonist of the video clip of his latest single ‘Happier’. In this interview, he reveals that he plans to continue working on his new album, having already finished some tracks. Moreover, he also announced that he plans to end his tour in September 2019.
This extension of his current tour means that there is a possibility he will perform at festivals next summer. In an interview with Pinkpop organiser Jan Smeets, Dutch media 3voor12 ask if Ed Sheeran is something for the 50th Pinkpop, as he will be doing festivals next year. Jan Smeets answered somewhat vaguely: “Maybe. It is indeed a thing”.
Ed Sheeran is an English musician born in Halifax, West Yorkshire in 1991. After moving to London in 2008 and performing in small venues, he started studying at the Academy of Contemporary Music in 2009. Through his videos on YouTube, Sheeran began to be seen by more people, while his fan-base also grew. In 2011, Sheeran released his debut album + (Plus). The album gained generally positive reviews from the media, winning numerous Brit Awards. It was also nominated for a Grammy Award in 2013. However, his international career peaked with the release of his second album x (Multiply). With over four million sales in the U.S the album was named the second-best-selling album of 2015 worldwide. Sheeran continues to be one of the most popular live acts, selling out venues like Madison Square Garden within minutes. He released his latest album ÷ (Divide) in 2017.
