Ed Sheeran will be the first musician in twenty years to undertake a headline national arena tour completely solo. Accompanied on stage by only a loop pedal and his trusty acoustic guitar, his ability to fill even the biggest of rooms is testament to his unique talent and appeal as a live performer.
A relentless work ethic combined with his dedicated fanbase have seen the 23-year-old Brit go from local pubs to sold-out arenas across the globe in just four short years, selling millions of records along the way.
Just a short drive or taxi ride from the Horncastle Arena, make the Rydges Latimer Christchurch your base to see this awesome gig. Why not have a few drinks or dinner in Bloody Mary's before the show?
