Ed Sheeran is to headline a Croke Park gig this July it was confirmed this morning.
The announcement was made on Ryan Tubridy’s 2fm morning show, and follows on from Sheeran’s highly anticipated Dublin Storytellers’ concert in Whelans earlier this month.
Sheeran himself said that although he had never been to the historic stadium he had “heard the most amazing things about it”.
“They don’t do many concerts so I never expected to play there,” he said.
It builds on his three stadium shows at Wembley this July, before he heads to Croker on July 24. He said he will then take a year-long break.
“I always love coming back to Ireland. Irish audiences really are among the best in the world. I am so looking forward to stepping onto that stage in the magnificent stadium that is Croke Park on Friday 24 July”
Tickets for his Dublin gig will go on sale next Thursday 26 February at 9am from Ticketmaster and are expected to cost €69.45.
