Ed Sheeran has announced another huge show in London – and it just happens to be the day before Glastonbury 2017.
Sheeran has long been rumoured to play Glastonbury 2017, but now the chances of a headline appearance seem more likely with a massive show revealed in London – to mark the 10th anniversary of The o2.
“I am really excited to be joining the celebrations for The O2’s 10th Birthday,” said Sheeran. “The O2 is such an iconic venue and has played host to some of my biggest inspirations. It’s always a privilege to play there and taking part in the 10th Birthday celebrations makes it even more special.”
He’ll be joining the previously announced Alt-J, Jamiroquai and Celine Dion in performing at The O2’s tenth birthday celebrations, with Sheeran’s special show taking to the stage on Thursday 22 June. Tickets are on sale from 5pm today and will be available here.
