The key steps to surviving this morning’s Ed Sheeran tickets sale!

Today is a BIG day for Ed Sheeran fans in the Emerald Isle. A VERY big day. The biggest.

This morning, at 9am, tickets will go on sale for two Irish gigs by the hit singer in Dublin's Croke Park on July 24th and 25th.

We reckon they'll sell out in minutes so you're going to need to be prepared for some serious (but short-lived) stress!

Here are a few tips to get you through…

1. Set an alarm
Even if you're up and about already, you don't want to find yourself getting distracted come show time! So set an alarm (or three) for 8.55am. Ed thinks you're doing GREAT so far.


Have your card details at hand, ensure there's enough money in your account, track down your Ticketmaster login details, and take a few deep breaths. Ed's watching out for you.


3. Have a cup of tea on hand
Not too near your keyboard, mind. You don't want to short circuit your computer two minutes before the tickets go on sale. Follow Ed's example:


4. Play some soothing music to help you chill out
This is what Ed's songs are MADE for. We recommend:


5. Have someone trying to buy tickets on another computer/phone/tablet too
All hands on deck for Operation Ed. You know he'd be helping too, if he COULD. But he's busy chilling out:


6. Flex those fingers and get ready to hit refresh MULTIPLE times
Have faith! Here's Ed looking serene in a Christmas jumper to keep you motivated:

Best of luck ladies! And don't panic, if you don't manage to get your hands on tickets for the gig, we have a pair to give away to one lucky SHEmazing reader! Enter here via our Facebook page!
