Suffolk superstar Ed Sheeran has announced that a second act will be joining him for his Divide tour when it heads to Ipswich this summer.
Brit Award-nominated artist Lewis Capaldi will be joining Ed for two of the four dates at Chantry Park.
The singer, who is the distant relative of Scottish actor Peter Capaldi, secured a UK top 10 single in 2018 with his song ‘Someone You Loved’.
The music video for the song featured his relative, who is best known for playing the 12th incarnation of The Doctor in Doctor Who.
The announcement of Lewis Capaldi’s addition to the tour came on the Framlingham singer’s Instagram page.
Ed wrote: “Hello all, @lewiscapaldi is opening up Ipswich and Leeds shows, yay. See you all there x”
Lewis Capaldi joins Lowestoft band The Darkness who had previously been announced for the tour.
