Ed Sheeran Announces 18 Month Hiatus From Music

Published: Thursday 29th Aug 2019 by Rashad

 

With over 250 shows played to a reported 9 million concertgoers collectively over his record-breaking ‘Divide’ world tour (click here to read more), Ed Sheeran is undoubtedly due for a break.  And, as revealed during his recent stop at Ipswich, England show earlier this week, the Grammy-winner has every intention to take it.

Details inside:

“As you may or not know, I’ve been on the Divide tour for over two years now and this is the last day of the whole thing,” he told the audience, according to The Sun. “There is something very bittersweet about it.”

He went on to say:

“I love that you guys are here and we are ending it in Ipswich. This is my last gig for probably 18 months,” he added. “Thank you to everyone who has given me a chance. This is my last song. I wrote this when I was 15 years old. See you in a few years time. Thank you.”

*****

As reported here, Sheeran famously made headlines in early 2018 when he announced his intention to retire from music when he and wife, Cherry Seaborn, welcomed their first child.  While this ‘semi-retirement’ may not exactly be him making good on that promise, time will tell if he’s able to stay away from the recording studio an entire year-and-a-half.

    I guess his last efforts was a disappointment. Crazy how it underperform so heavily.

      That was not an album, it was a project full of collaborations. It debuted at number 1 on billboard 200 and stayed there for 2 weeks, blocking beyonce’s lion king the gift album from hitting number 1.

      I don’t care feat justin bieber was a global number 1 hit around the world, a top 2 hit on billboard

      Beautiful people with Khalid hit number 1 in UK also.

      Ed Sheeran has the highest grossing tour of all time, more than 700 million generated from his tour.

      He needs a break.

      You so damn right

    @smh
    Gurl be quite. You’re a clown

    Ed Sheeran himself described the album as a compilation album.

    An album that debuted at number 1 and stayed there for two week is a flop? Lol .

    The album also debuted at number 1 in his native country, and has already been certified platinum in the UK becoming one of the highest selling albums of the year in the UK.

    He was still on tour? News to me. I liked Divide, but this new collaboration album was not it for me. Every single collaboration fell flat…especially the one with Justin Bieber. He set himself up by naming that single “I don’t care”…because frankly, I don’t care about this hiatus.

    The cultrue vultrue proberly look for more music to steal….ijs

    Ed taught himselves to play multiple instruments, he can sing, produce and put on a great show. Statistics speak for itself. Many of you just mad becausehe blocked Beyonce shitty Lion King LP from number 1 that performed poorly with no hits and stolen concept video. Congrats Ed and the break is much needed, thank you for blessing us with your talent.
