Multi-platinum selling, BRIT Award Winner, Ivor Novello Award Recipient and the phenomenon that is Ed Sheeran hits Leeds First Direct Arena this weekend.

Masterfully blending soulful vocals with organic folk introspection and irresistible hip-hop hooks, Ed Sheeran has enjoyed a meteoric rise. The 22-year old's debut "+" entered the U.K. Album Chart at #1 with the highest opening week figures for a debut male solo artist ever. His Second Album 'X' released in June this year, made No. 1 in 12 countries and his global popularity continues to rise.

Check out the Official video for Ed Sheeran's 'Thinking Out Loud', taken from the album 'X'.

Supporting Ed on the night is Saint Raymond, a singer-songwriter from Nottingham (AKA Callum Burrows), who has a rapidly growing a fan base. Definitely worth getting down early for!

We are looking forward to hearing this.
