Singer songwriter supreme will play Scotland's national stadium on Fri 1 Jun 2018
The singer-songwriter, who has gone from open-mics and couch surfing to mingling with Pharrell Williams, Taylor Swift and Elton John headlined Glastonbury 2017. He's sold 26 million albums worldwide and these days can practically fill the top ten of the singles chart by himself.
Ed's Hampden Park show is part of a UK tour which takes him to Belfast, Newcastle, Manchester, Cardiff and London. It'll be his Glasgow gig since two shows at the SSE Hydro in April 2017.
After years of hard work travelling around the UK playing open mic nights, during which time the Yorkshire-born, Suffolk-raised singer found celebrity fans as varied as Example, Rio Ferdinand and even Jamie Foxx, Sheeran released his debut album + in 2011, which featured the singles 'The A Team', 'You Need Me, I Don't Need You' and 'Lego House'.
2014's X brought Sheeran his first number one single in 'Sing' a collaboration with Pharrell Williams, and also contained the acoustic ballad 'One'. This year's ÷ became the fastest selling solo album by a male artist in the UK's history. Sheeran played 'Castle on the Hill, 'Eraser', 'Shape of You and 'Galway Girl' from the record on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury last Sunday, by just an acoustic guitar and loop pedal. A brave move, maybe, but when you're one of the biggest stars in the world, it's no biggie.
