Ed Sheeran’s NZ shows ex­pected to be a sell-out

Hamilton Press - - OUT & ABOUT - COM­PE­TI­TION

Ed Sheeran is play­ing six New Zealand sta­dium shows next year and we have a copy of his lat­est CD ÷ (Di­vide) to give­away to cel­e­brate.

Auck­land’s Mt Smart Sta­dium — March 24, 25,26 (all sold out), Dunedin’s Forsythe Barr Sta­dium March 29 and 31 (both sold out) and there are lim­ited GA stand­ing tick­ets only left for the April 1 show.

The cyn­ics said Ed will never sell out a sec­ond show at Mt Smart. Boom! He sells out three.

And then ‘‘He’ll never sell out two in Dunedin.’’ Boom! Two com­pletely gone and a third with only lim­ited GA Stand­ing tick­ets left.

Those cyn­ics have well and truly been si­lenced.

Our fea­tured CD, Ed’s lat­est of­fer­ing Di­vide, char­ac­terised by the math­e­mat­i­cal sym­bol ÷, elicited unan­i­mous praise from mu­sic crit­ics.

And they weren’t far wrong. It de­buted at the cov­eted No.1 spot on charts around the globe and had al­ready given up great sin­gles in Cas­tle On The Hill, Shame On You and Gal­way Girl as well as pro­mo­tional sin­gles How Would You Feel (Paean) and Eraser, from its twelve mas­sive tracks.

It fol­lows the trend set by Ed’s pre­vi­ous two al­bums, each char­ac­terised by a math­e­mat­i­cal sym­bol.

The first + (Plus) had the sin­gles The A Team, You Need Me I Don’t Need You, Lego House, Drunk, Small Bump and Give Me Love.

The sec­ond X (Mul­ti­ply) had the equally as im­pres­sive Sing, Don’t, Think­ing Out Loud, Blood­stream and Pho­to­graph.

All we can sug­gest is you start look­ing for those cheap flights to Dunedin, or reg­is­ter with fron­tier­tour­ing.com and tick­et­mas­ter.co.nz in case there are any last-minute ticket re­leases in Auck­land.

Mean­while, why not pick up a copy of Di­vide and treat your- self to some of the most pop­u­lar mu­sic around.

In fact, buy all three of his al­bums and ex­pe­ri­ence the mu­si­cal phe­nom­e­non (and gen­uine all-round nice guy to boot) that is Ed Sheeran.
