Ed Sheeran has announced details of a huge world tour.
The 'Castle on the Hill' hitmaker will go out on the road in Italy on March 17 and play 42 concerts throughout the UK & Ireland, Europe,Central and South America, ending in Mexico on June 14.
The tour includes two nights at London's The O2 on May 1 and 2, his first shows in the city since his record-breaking gigs at Wembley Stadium in July 2015.
The UK, Irish and European shows will go on sale from 10am on 2 February, while fans in Mexico, Central and South America are advised to contact local ticketing companies for on sale dates.
While no support act has yet been announced for the tour, it was recently claimed the 25-year-old singer wants his close friend James Blunt to join him for some of the dates.
A source said: "Ed and James have a real laugh together, it'll be proper madness on tour. James has a good following in the US so he'll also play some gigs too, acting as a support for his mate. When you spend so much time on the road it's always handy to be in good company, and James certainly fits into that category."
And the 'Shape of You' singer previously admitted he didn't want to play stadiums this year.
He said: "This time, I didn't want to go straight into stadiums. I wanted to get the tour good first. We're doing smaller shows ... It's mad to say an arena is a small show cause it's not, but it was a conscious decision not to book a load of Wembleys this year."
