Ed Sheeran to announce UK and Europe stadium tour - and hopes high for Ireland gig

Fresh from his massive Glastonbury set Ed Sheeran has revealed he will be announcing a UK and Europe stadium tour on Wednesday - and fans here are hoping this will include a date in Ireland.

The Thinking Out Loud singer performed to almost 100,000 people at Worthy Farm in Somerset on Sunday night, and he has reveled in his success by revealing on social media:

Many fans shared their excitement of the news, and while his Northern Ireland fans know chances of a Belfast gig are slim due to a lack of stadium venues, many are keeping their fingers crossed for a Dublin annoucement.

Ed performed at Dublin's 3Arena in April, having previously sold out two nights at Croke Park in 2015.

His ties with Ireland were highlighted during his Glastonbury set when he performed Nancy Mulligan with Northern Ireland-based trad band Beoga.

Despite raves reviews for his Glasto set, the singer took to Twitter on Monday to defend himself against those who suggested he wasn't performing live.
