In a short video that featured Ed Sheeran earlier in April, the 26-year old British singer-songwriter sensation stated, to his surprise, that his biggest market in the world is the Philippines.
Sheeran pleasingly encouraged his Filipino fans to listen to his newest singles “Shape of You” and “Castle on the Hill” from his then freshly released third album Divide. The singer ended the short clip with the phrase “I’ll see you all soon”, teasing another possible visit to the Philippines:
On April 29 at Ed Sheeran “Divide” Weekend, a two-day event by Warner Music Philippines and Globe Telecom held at the UP Town Center, it was officially announced that Ed Sheeran will indeed be performing in the Philippines on tour for his latest album. This was confirmed by another short clip revealed during the event that featured him saying “I’ll see you towards the end of the year.”
There is no specific date as of the moment, but just knowing for sure that Ed Sheeran will be back in town again is already something to look forward to. Rejoice Filipino Sheerios! Better start saving up as early as now.
