Villiers’ prediction on Ed Sheeran’s 2017 tour

Having made a phenomenal return this month with not one, but two chart topping hits, fans are already clamouring for Ed Sheeran to make his long-awaited tour announcement. 

The surprise releases of Castle on the Hill, a love song about his home county Suffolk, and Shape of You have seen Sheeran rocket up the charts worldwide; most notably so in the UK where songs entered the singles chart at Number One and Two, prompting Sheeran to break records as being the first artist to ever have done so.

These two hits mark the first material from Sheeran after a three-year hiatus, including taking 2016 as a year completely out of the limelight. The two markedly different styles of songs hint at having taken inspiration from the name upcoming album ÷ (Divide), which is due to be released in full on 3rd March.

In the meantime, speculation continues to build surrounding Sheeran’s announcement of a 2017 tour. Will it be UK only or a worldwide takeover? Will he perform at renowned arenas such as London’s O2 Arena or The SSE Hydro, or formidable stadiums like Croke Park? Having enjoyed an unprecedented three-day sell out of Wembley Stadium in 2015, there is no doubt that the singer is more than capable to take on stadiums this time around.
