While people can’t seem to stop swooning over Justin Bieber coming to India for his Purpose World Tour, there is a lot more to be excited about. English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, who recently released his third album Divide, will be coming to India. That’s right. Now you all can shake a hip to 2017’s dance anthem Shape of You as Sheeran performs it live.
Here’s a screenshot of Ed Sheeran’s official website, where it has been announced that on November 19, Ed Sheeran will be performing in Mumbai.
In 2015, when Ed had come to India for the first time, he was apparently very impressed with the Indian culture. In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, right after the gig here, the star singer talked about learning Bollywood moves, how he loved eating curry and complimented Indians for aging well.
Eight other cities have also been added to the tour schedule, including, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Manila, Jakarta, Bangkok, Taipei, Osaka, Seoul, among others. The tour will span over the months of October and November.
Sheeran has been quite busy after taking a year-long hiatus recently. It was also reported that he has been cast for a role in HBO’s hit fantasy drama series Game of Thrones where he sings a song for Maisie Williams’ character Arya Stark.
