Ed Sheeran 3Arena Dublin 8pm ¤42.55 Also Sat/Sun/Mon, Dublin; Wed/Thurs, Belfast

Four nights in Dublin’s 3Arena and then two nights at Belfast’s Odyssey? Oh, he’s popular, all right. There ap­pears to be no get­ting away from the tou­sled, red-haired singer-song­writer who is by no means as bad as cer­tain tastemak­ers would have us be­lieve. All shows are sold out, so best of luck nab­bing a ticket. Tony Clayton-Lea CLUB
