BRITISH pop star Ed Sheeran has announced a second concert at the new Perth Stadium next year, which will be the first major event at the state-of-the-art facility.

The new concert will be on Friday March 2 – the night before his previously scheduled engagement – meaning people who buy tickets will be the first to attend a major event at the new venue.

Four new shows were added to the tour today, meaning Sheeran officially smashed the Australasian record for the largest number of stadium shows on one single tour.

He is now doing an 18-date stadium run across Australia and New Zealand.

“I’ve always loved coming to Australia and New Zealand,” Sheeran said.

“So many amazing musicians have toured there and I am humbled to have broken these records.”

Michael Gudinski, head of Frontier Touring, was delighted.

“This is now not only the biggest tour Frontier has promoted, but it’s the biggest tour in Australian and New Zealand touring history,” he said.
