After rumours began circulating that a big act was coming to Ireland and being kept in suspense for a few weeks, it’s official, singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran will be playing Croker this summer.

Sheeran is going to play on a Friday night in Croke Park on June 24th, to an estimated 70,000 ecstatic fans.

The singer has gone from strength to strength over the past 12 months, he was the biggest selling artist in Ireland for 2014, his album spent 9 weeks at number one going 9x platinum, he was the most streamed artist on Spotify in 2014 and he won the inaugural BBC Music Awards artist of the year.

The gig will no doubt be a little louder than his recent intimate show in Whelan’s. The singer performed for 400 lucky audience members for VH1′s ‘Storytellers’ series.

In October 2014, Sheeran sold out 4 nights at Dublin’s 3Arena, playing to an estimated 14,000 people every night.

The red headed musician sold out 80,000 tickets for his first concert in Wembley Stadium, leading to two extra shows being added due to the phenomenal demand to see him.

It is possible that demand will be so great for his Croker concert, that he’ll add an extra night.

Tickets go on sale this Thursday 26 February at 9am from Ticketmaster and all usual outlets Nationwide.
