Ed Sheeran is to headline a gig at New York City's Madison Square Garden.
The 'A Team' hitmaker will follow in the footsteps of his friends Harry Styles and Taylor Swift by performing at the famed music venue - which is dubbed the world's most famous arena - on November 1.
Ed gushed as he made the announcement on Twitter, writing: "My dad always said you haven't made it til you've played MSG so it's a massive honour.
"Oh, and it's not the concert theatre, it's the big one. Propah (sic)"
In more tweets, the 22-year-old star referred to his concert as the "biggest thing in my career to date".
Ed's headline slot at Madison Square Garden follows in the footsteps of his pal Harry Styles, whose band One Direction sold out the arena last December.
The 'Give Me Love' crooner has been working hard to crack America over the past year and is currently supporting 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' singer Taylor on her 'Red Tour'.
Ed recently revealed he is back in the studio to work on the follow-up to his debut album, '+', and has recorded songs with rapper The Game and dance act Rudimental.
