After Justin Bieber, Ed Sheeran to perform in Mumbai


Even as people are still spellbound by Justin Bieber’s maiden performance in India, comes the news that British singer Ed Sheeran is also set to perform in India later this year. The ‘Thinking Out Loud singer’ has added nine cities to his upcoming world tour and Mumbai is one of them.

Ed Sheeran will be performing in Mumbai on November 19. He will be visiting India as a part of the Asia leg of his World Tour, with his recent album ‘Divide’. The ‘extra shows’ along with the dates were announced on the official website of the singer. The news of Sheeran’s performance in Mumbai came in hours before Bieber’s concert on Wednesday (May 10).

The concert in Mumbai falls on a Sunday. However, the venue for the concert and other details haven’t been announced yet. It will be Ed Sheeran’s second visit to India. Sheeran had been to Mumbai earlier in March, 2015.

The 26-year-old singer is on tour to promote his third and latest album ‘Divide’, which is his third album after 2011 release ‘Plus’ and ‘Multiply’ which released in 2014. The world tour will take Ed Sheeran and his entourage across continents throughout this year, with extra shows also scheduled in Asian cities like Hong Kong, Tokyo, Bangkok, Jakarta, Manila, Kuala Lumpur and few more.

Interestingly, Ed Sheeran will be performing in Mumbai on the same date as British rock band Coldplay performed in India for the first time as part of the Global Citizen Festival in Mumbai in 2016.
