Ed Sheeran announced a very special run of dates on his – Tour (pronounced Subtract Tour), set to take place in theaters and auditoriums in 14 cities across North America. These intimate performances — which kick off at the Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, FL, on May 19th, and wrap up at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, CA, on September 22nd — coincide with the massive stadium shows of Sheeran’s previously announced Mathematics Tour. Singer-songwriter Ben Kweller will serve as support on most dates.
The newly announced tour supports Sheeran’s forthcoming new album Subtract, set for release on May 5th. Ed wrote and recorded the fourteen-track record with Aaron Dessner of The National in February last year; the album’s opening track “Boat” was shared last week, following the release of the LP’s lead single “Eyes Closed,” which marked Sheeran’s 14th No. 1 in the UK.
Sheeran is using Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan technology for his The Subtract Tour. The Verified Fan on sale is set to begin on Tuesday, May 2nd at 10 am local venue time.
