His world tour will continue till June 2015, performing in the rest of Asia, Europe, North America and Oceania.

The 'Lego House' singer first rose to fame when he was spotted by Sir Elton John and British football player Rio Ferdinand through his videos on the internet. Since then, Sheeran has released two full length studio albums, both of which have been certified Platinum. His sophomore album 'x' has charted at number one in twelve countries and reached the Top 5 in eleven other countries.

'The A Team' singer is signed under Atlantic Records and will be represented in India by Sony Music India.
