Ed Sheeran announces biggest headline gig to date at Wembley Stadium

The show will be Sheeran's first-ever stadium headline show

Ed Sheeran has announced a one-off show at London’s Wembley Stadium for 2015.

The singer-songwriter will play the mammoth venue on July 10, with tickets on pre-sale from week Wednesday (November 26) and general sale from 9am on Friday (November 28).

“I’ve made no secret recently of my ambition to play Wembley Stadium on my own in front of 80,000 people, so I am absolutely over the moon to be able to announce it’s going to happen next Summer,” Sheeran said of the news. “It’s going to be amazing, I just can’t wait.”

It’ll be Sheeran’s biggest headline gig to date and his first-ever stadium headline show.

Ed Sheeran released his second studio album ‘X’ in June, reaching Number One in the Official UK Album Chart.

The singer recently spoke about perception of his music as being “boring”, after Isle Of Wight Festival organiser John Giddings said that if Sheeran is the future of festival headliners then we are “all screwed”.

Sheeran responded: “Everyone’s entitled to an opinion… a lot of people think I’m boring – I think other people are boring. It’s fine and that’s a normal thing to think.”
