Ed Sheeran to play massive "homecoming shows" in Leeds and Ipswich

Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran is to play two sets of massive homecoming park shows next summer.

The singer-songwriter will play Leeds’ Roundhay Park on August 16-17 and Chantry Park in Ipswich on August 23-24. 

The West Yorkshire date reflects the fact Sheeran was born in Halifax, while he grew-up in Framlingham in Suffolk.  

Tickets for the quartet of dates will go on sale on from 10am (BST) on September 27. As with previous shows, Sheeran is using "paperless" ticketing to prevent touting.

In addition to the UK shows, Sheeran has also confirmed dates in France, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Germany, Austria, Romania, Czech Republic, Latvia, Russia, Finland, Denmark, Hungary and Iceland next summer ahead of his homecoming.

He will also make a headlining appearence at Hungary's Sziget Festival which takes place between August 7-13.
