His 2019 tour, which culminates with four homecoming gigs at Chantry Park, will keep the pop sensation in South America through February before he heads off to play gigs in South Africa, Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea through March and April.

He will then tour Europe before returning to the UK to perform in Leeds and Ipswich.

Ed posted a photograph on Instagram last night, crouching down in front of a packed Allianz Park in the Brazilian city, with thousands of his fans waving their arms wildly in the air.

The Allianz stadium has posted video clips of his performance - giving fans a glimpse of what they have in store when the Framlingham singer-songwriter returns to play in Suffolk’s county town.

The clips show the crowd singing along with Galway Girl and Thinking out Loud.
