Ed Sheeran adds extra tour date at London O2 to celebrate venue's 10th anniversary

Today Ed Sheeran announced plans to play an extra date as part of his sell-out UK tour.

The singer, who must be on a high since scoring the fastest-selling album ever by a male artist – with nine singles in the top ten, is set to perform at London’s O2 Arena in June.

Tickets for the extra date go on sale today from 5pm from Ticketmaster.

The show, which is set for June 22, will mark the 10th anniversary of the iconic London venue and will finish up the previously 14-date tour Ed will embark on from next month.

We expect demand will be high for the new date as tickets for previous shows on the forthcoming tour sold-out within minutes, as music fans rushed online.

Ticketmaster sold out in under 10 minutes, and other major ticketing sites also sold-out quickly, or experienced technical issues as sites were overwhelmed by the traffic.

The star’s return to the limelight after a 12-month hiatus has helped to create even more anticipation to see him perform live and with his latest album, Divide, now topping the charts, fans are clamouring to get hold of tickets.

5 tips on how to get tickets to sold-out shows

  1. Sign up to major ticketing website newsletters , like Ticketmaster , to get priority booking and hear the latest news about your favourite artist first. This will increase your chances of actually getting the tickets you want, for the dates and locations you desire the most.

  2. Sign up to www.edsheeran.com for access to pre-sale tickets . Although it’s too late for this set of dates, there’s always a (slim) chance more advanced tickets for extra dates will be released later on down the line. And you’ll want to ensure you don’t miss out on those.

  3. Check dates and times the tickets go on sale to ensure you’re first in line at checkout. Major ticketing sites like Ticketmaster , See Tickets , Amazon Tickets and The Ticket Factory all officially sell general on sale tickets.

  4. Be patient when you’re booking online . Constantly refreshing pages and jumping from one browser to another can in fact count against you when buying high demand tickets.

  5. Check the small print . Find out about any restrictions on how many tickets you can buy, what types of payment are accepted, and anything else that will help you make a seamless transaction as quickly as possible on the day of sale.
