Ed Sheeran has just announced *seven* concert dates for Ireland next summer

Move over, Garth Brooks.

ED SHEERAN HAS announced details of a stadium tour for next summer and will play a total of seven gigs in Ireland next summer.

The singer has announced dates in Cork, Galway, Belfast and Dublin for May 2018.

He will play in Páirc Uí Chaoimh, Cork, on May 4th and 5th, Boucher Playing Fields, Belfast, on May 9th, Pearse Stadium, Galway, on May 12th and 13th and Phoenix Park, Dublin, on May 16th and 18th.

According to Ed Sheeran’s website, tickets for the gigs will go on general sale on Saturday July 8th at 9am from Ticketmaster and usual outlets, but there’s no word on ticket prices yet.

The singer has also warned against selling on tickets and organisers have stated that any tickets that are resold will not be valid unless it’s sold through resale partner Twickets, which sells tickets for face value.

Ed and his team have a strict stance against anyone using secondary ticketing websites for profit. On this tour, any tickets that are resold will not be valid – this means no profit to touts and no one getting ripped off. On all the stadium dates you will be required to bring your tickets, booking confirmation and credit card, plus a valid form of ID or you will not be granted entry to the show.

This marks the singer’s most extensive Irish tour yet. Earlier this year, he played two gigs in Dublin’s 3Arena and there was speculation that  he might perform in Croke Park next summer.

Imagine the scenes when he performs Galway Girl in Pearse Stadium next summer, eh?
