Ed Sheeran Announces Series Of 'Intimate' North American Theater Shows

Pop superstar Ed Sheeran has announced a special run of intimate shows to coincide with the release of his new album, (pronounced: Subtract).

The “Subtract” tour is set to take place in theatres and auditoriums in 14 cities across North America. Singer-songwriter Ben Kweller will provide support on most dates.

The brief trek will kicks off at the Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, Florida, on May 19th and wrap up at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California, on September 22nd.

“I’m playing some smaller theatre shows in the U.S. this summer, so I can play Subtract the entire way through with full band in an intimate setting,” Sheeran explained on social media.
