ED SHEERAN IS to play Croke Park this summer.

The gig will take place on 24 July, the singer confirmed to 2fm’s Ryan Tubridy this morning.

Sheeran said that after his recent ‘Storytellers’ concert in Whelans he “just felt like I needed to play in Dublin again this year”.

Tickets will go on sale next Thursday 26 February at 9am via Ticketmaster.

Making the announcement, the English singer said he had never been to Croke Park before but had “heard the most amazing things about it”.

“They don’t do many concerts so I never expected to play there.”

Sheeran also recently played at the Grammy Awards and has booked three mid-July gigs at London’s Wembley Stadium.
