Then came the Latin American tour dates.By March 8th, 2017 Sheeran announced the North American leg, along with guest acts James Blunt and Joshua Radin (for select venues). Two months later in May, he announced the Oceanian leg of the tour (Australia and New Zealand), which rapidly expanded from seven to eighteen shows due to the high demand.In June 2017, Sheeran announced the Asian leg of the tour, which had to be postponed from October to November due to bone fractures in his arms from a bike accident.

He is bringing his talents to a city near you and will have you belting out your favourite hits along with him.Hes very nimble on stage (as he is in recordings), able to hit high falsetto notes with ease and switch between mournful or uplifting melodies to more rap-like rhythms effortlessly.
