He's heading back to his home county to play six dates at Chantry Park, Ipswich over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

Zara Larsson and James Bay will be going on tour with Ed for the rest of his European dates, with Passenger supporting for his South American tour which starts in February.

The Darkness are best known for their 2003 hit single 'I Believe in a Thing Called Love' and their festive classic 'Christmas Time (Don't Let the Bells End'.

They released their fifth studio album Pinewood Smile in October 2017 and a live album Live at Hammersmith in 2018.

Tickets are still available for some of Ed's UK dates, with Saturday in Leeds and Saturday in Ipswich already sold out.
