Ed Sheeran Added to BRITs Week Line-Up
Ed to headline indigo at The O2 on 19 February
We are really delighted to announce that global superstar, GRAMMY and BRIT Award winner, Ed Sheeran will perform a headline show at indigo at The O2 on 19 February as part of this year’s War Child BRITs Week.
The series of gigs give fans the opportunity to see the biggest names in music in intimate venues while raising money for children whose lives have been torn apart by war.
In 2017 Ed dominated the charts around the globe with the release of his 12 million-selling, third studio album ‘÷’ which became the fastest-selling album by a male artist, ever, in the UK. With a UK stadium tour throughout May and June, the intimacy of Ed’s one-off gig at the indigo at The O2 will be something very special.
Liana Mellotte, Head of Music, Entertainment & Development at War Child said: “Every year at War Child, we dream about curating the perfect BRITs Week line up so all our donors, fans and partners have an amazing experience. The day that Ed Sheeran agreed to play this show our dreams came true.
Ed’s performance completes an unbelievable 2018 line up, and it is set to be a highlight of BRITs Week 2018.
It’s fantastic to be marking our 25th year by working with acts of this calibre. We want to say a huge thank you to Ed, and to all the artists dedicating their time and talent to help children whose lives have been torn apart by conflict. It means the world to us.”
Other artists on the line-up include Jessie Ware, Rag ‘n’ Bone Man plus special guest Samm Henshaw, Laura Marling, The Vamps, alt-J, The Amazons, Deaf Havana, Kygo and Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats who will all be playing in various London venues with a special one-off show in Manchester from Wolf Alice. All gigs will take place between 12th and 24th February in the lead up to the BRIT Awards to celebrate another phenomenal year for British music.
