Ed Sheeran is ready to take center stage.
The “A Team” singer will headline his first headlining arena tour across North America this summer, coinciding with the release of his new LP, “x,” which is pronounced “multiply.”
Last week, Sheeran released his Pharrell-produced single “Sing,” a track inspired by Justin Timberlake that marks a departure for the introspective young singer.
During his musical guest stint on “Saturday Night Live” over the weekend, he previewed another track from the record titled “Don’t,” which again has the performer shaking up his sound.
“x” will bow on June 23, with the tour gearing up two months later on August 22 in Seattle, hitting Las Vegas, Philadelphia, Boston, Charlotte and Nashville along the way.
Sheeran previously toured in support of Taylor Swift on her Red Tour.
