Ed Sheeran is really settling into Irish culture this week.

Not only has he managed to sell out his massive Croke Park gigs this weekend, he’s also making time to get in touch with his Irish family.

At a press conference earlier this week he explained that while he was delighted to be able to spend some time pottering about our grand little island, he wouldn’t exactly be spotted in Coppers buying pints for all, yet.


Can't wait for this weekends shows at Croke Park stadium. I love me some Ireland

“I’ve been at my gran’s. We ate pasta last night, hung out with the dogs… Nothing really rock’n'roll to be honest.”

Sounds lovely to be honest, who doesn’t love pasta and puppies? Ed’s granny lives in Wexford, so surely some fans were wondering around hoping to catch a glimpse of the star singer.

Ed is obviously delighted to be able to play for such a massive crowd, saying that last night's gig was "mental" on Twitter. He is clearly quite the family man also:

“Croker is time to catch up with my gran and get cups of tea and not necessarily go out and do 15 Jagerbombs. Not saying that won’t happen at some point, but for this first few days I’m focusing on family sh*t.”

Oh Ed, we love you even more.

If that wasn’t enough to make us all giddy, last night Ed found the perfect way to combat any nerves he had before heading out on stage.

He grabbed a hurley and sliotar and had a fine little puck about before greeting the huge crowd. We wonder if anyone told him it was upside down though?…

Not content with mastering our favourite past time, Ed further immersed himself in our Irish ways when he brought Swords natives Kodaline on stage to sing their single All I Want and Raglan Road.

Who else is excited to see what happens tonight? We certainly are. 



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!
