2011’s UK breakthrough star, Ed Sheeran, has announced details of his next UK tour, set to take place in October/November 2012. The run of dates will kick off at London’s Hammersmith Apollo on October 15, following with shows in Newport, Bournemouth, Plymouth, Birmingham, Nottingham, Manchester, Doncaster, Hull, Blackpool, Newcastle and Edinburgh, before finishing up at Glasgow’s Barrowlands on November 14th.

The Suffolk-raised 20-year-old released his acclaimed debut album ‘+’ in September 2011 and he hasn’t looked back since. The album, which is now triple platinum with over 900,000 sales, debuted at #1 in the official UK charts upon release and reclaimed the #1 title at the turn of the year. Furthermore, Ed has received the most amount of BRIT Awards nominations this year. Tipped for ’Best Male’, ‘Best Breakthrough’, ‘Best Single’, and ‘Best Album’, the ceremony takes place at London’s O2 Arena on February 21st. In addition to this, Ed’s previously received nods from iTunes ‘Best Newcomer 2011’, BT Digital Music Awards ‘Breakthrough Artist of the Year’, BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards ‘Best British Single’ and Q Awards ‘Breakthrough Artist’.

Last year saw the release of the massive UK top five singles, ‘The A Team’, ‘You Need Me, I Don’t Need You’ and ‘Lego House’. No doubt the flame-haired guitar genius will continue this trend when he releases his new single ‘Drunk’ on February 27th.
