People have been queuing up since yesterday to get tickets to one of Ed Sheeran's Irish shows

Tickets for these shows officially go on sale online and from Ticketmaster outlets nationwide tomorrow morning at 9am.

LAST WEEK, THE popular UK singer Ed Sheeran announced his biggest Irish tour to date – playing shows in Galway, Cork, Dublin and Belfast next May.

Tickets for these shows officially go on sale online and from Ticketmaster outlets nationwide tomorrow morning at 9am.

But Sheeran’s fans – eager to make sure they secure tickets – have been queuing up super early outside Ticketmaster outlets in Cork and Galway.

Cork man Daithi took this snap at Merchant’s Quay in the city yesterday afternoon:

Since then queues have picked up in locations across the country.

This is the state of affairs in Galway:

One person queuing in Galway spoke to RTÉ’s Pat McGrath about why she was out so early.

“Because it’s Ed Sheeran and he’s amazing and more especially because he’s in Galway and not Dublin or anywhere else,” the fan said.

“He’s just out the road so it makes it more special.

I watched him perform in Glastonbury and he performed for over three hours and he was just unreal so to see him live is just going to be amazing.

Fans were also spotted queuing in Kilkenny:

Sheeran will play gigs in Cork’s Páirc Uí Chaoimh, Boucher Road Playing Fields in Belfast, Pearse Stadium in Galway and the Phoenix Park in Dublin.

The popular singer played two sold out shows in Croke Park last year, as well as two gigs in the 3Arena in April, which sold out in five minutes.

In an attempt to clampdown on unauthorised selling of tickets, the person who purchased tickets on their credit card will have to go to the concert themselves.

If it’s a case where a parent bought the tickets on their credit card for their child, the child will need to present a copy of the card as well as ID showing the family name.
