Ed Sheeran adds third Dunedin date to sold out tour

That's right, Ed Sheeran WILL play a third show at Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin.

Ed Sheeran has responded to fan demand by adding a third Dunedin date to his 2018 New Zealand tour.

Adding the new show in New Zealand, Ed Sheeran tops up his sold out ÷ (divide) tour which takes place next March/April.

Original shows were met by phenomenal demand when they went on sale this week, with the British superstar selling out three nights at Auckland’s Mt Smart Stadium and another two nights at Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin.

In keeping with his legendary status, Sheeran will perform completely unaccompanied, joined on stage by just a guitar and effect pedals. The pull of this one-man band is an incredible experience to witness; layers of harmonies, rhythms and guitar parts cast out to a crowd of thousands who sing every lyric straight back to him.

The album ÷ and its singles have already broken global streaming records and chart records in Australia: all sixteen tracks from the deluxe version of ÷ have charted in the ARIA Top 40, ÷ sits atop the ARIA Albums Chart for its seventh week while Shape Of You recently notched up a record-breaking fourteenth week at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart.

Tips from our ticket experts:

Open your Ticketmaster account and log in now

We suggest getting the basics covered before tickets go on sale by logging in and checking your Ticketmaster account ahead of time. Remember to triple check your passwords and billing information now, so you’re not facing any last minute account updates when trying to process your order. Head to now and log in to your account to get started.

Don’t refresh your screen

Stick to one window when you’re processing your ticket order and avoid the temptation to use multiple devices. Attempting to access tickets from multiple devices won’t increase your chances of securing tickets and could risk slowing the process down. Similarly, hitting the refresh button means you’ll lose your place in the queue, and as frustrating it can be, patience is key when trying to buy tickets.

Ticketmaster’s sophisticated systems are designed to manage and process ticket purchases as quickly as possible. The queuing system that appears on your screen is doing all the hard work for you and will place you at the front of the line as soon as possible.
Please note, if you see a ‘no tickets available’ message when attempting to purchase tickets, this means there are no tickets available within your search restrictions.

Keep an eye on the clock

There will be a time limit applied to all transactions as they’re progressed through the ticket purchasing stages. Remember to keep an eye on the timer on your screen and move through the processing pages as quickly as possible (this is even easier when you’ve completed the account set-up stage we mentioned above).

Check our social channels for updates

Our Twitter followers are the first to find out about ticket updates, even after tickets have gone on sale. If anything changes with Ed Sheeran tickets, we’ll feed the news live onto our social channels. Our real-time updates include any technical difficulties that may occur during such busy ticket sales.
