Announced this morning, the forthcoming tour will see Sheeran kick off his time down under with a pair of shows in New Zealand, before heading across the Tasman for headline dates in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, and Perth.

Releasing his last album back in October, Sheeran’s = (pronounced ‘Equals’), gave him his fifth-straight chart-topping album in the country. Fittingly, the record also featured the track “Visiting Hours”, which Sheeran had written for, and first premiered at the memorial service of, late Australian music icon Michael Gudinski.
