Not only is Ed Sheeran is set to launch a 2018 tour of stadiums across North American next year, he is also set to help launch MTV's new reboot of TRL with a live performance on October 3rd. Migos is also scheduled for a live performance during the premiere episode.
Sheeran's tour kicks off next summer on August 18th at the legendary Rose Bowl in Pasadena, winding its way across America (with one stop in Canada along the way) before wrapping up in Atlanta early November.
To ensure that tickets go to actual fans as opposed to scalpers or bots, Sheeran is partnering with Ticketmaster to use the #VerifiedFan system. Registration opened on Friday and closes on October 12th. The Fan Presales are set to begin October 16th. The general public on-sales are October 20th.
Sheeran sat down for an interview on Good Morning America yesterday morning to make his big announcements. "For me, playing the coasts is one thing, but getting to play Middle America at that level, is pretty cool," Ed said of his upcoming tour.
On his major and unexpected global success, the British superstar said, "I didn't see having success out of England as an option. I never expected it. It's all a bit ridiculous." He went on, "All the things that have been happening, I didn't expect to happen. It's all unbelievable, you can't really take it in."
Sheeran also performed "Perfect" and "Shape Of You" while there.
