Ed Sheeran is fully under way with his huge 180 date ÷ (divide) world tour and he is heading to London very soon.

The singer songwriter is performing at the O2 Arena on May 1 to May 3.

He originally announced two shows but after selling those out his run was extended due to demand .

The hitmaker is also returning in June for a fourth show to perform as part of the O2 Arena's 10th birthday celebrations.

His recent singles "Shape of You" and "Castle on the Hill" broke Spotify streaming records and charted at numbers one and two on the UK singles chart.

It marked the first time an artist has ever achieved this feat with new songs.

If that wasn't enough he went on to reach number one in album charts across the globe with ÷ (divide) including the US and UK where it became the third fastest selling record of all time.

Sheeran added to his huge 2017 when he was recently announced as a Glastonbury headliner alongside Foo Fighters and Radiohead.

Are tickets still available?

Unfortunately the three dates sold out very quickly - and it was no surprise given the success of his recent singles and album.

However he has teamed up with Twickets which allows ticket holders who can no longer attend sell on their tickets at face value or less.

You can set up alerts to your e-mail or phone on the website here , but you'll have to be quick as tickets are snapped up instantly on the site.

The other alternative is to pay hiked prices on the likes of Get Me In or Viagogo but customers may find themselves paying double the original price.
