Ed Sheeran is taking his + – = ÷ x Tour to Limerick this Thursday, May 5 and Friday, May 6.

Thousands of music fans will descend on Limerick this week for two of the biggest gigs of the year by Global superstar Ed Sheeran. 

The Ed Sheeran Limerick gigs take place on Thursday, May 5 and Friday, May 6 at Thomond Park with limited tickets for the Thursday show still available. 

Limerick music icon Denise Chaila has been announced as a support act for eight Ed Sheeran dates across Ireland, along with English singer Maisie Peters as support acts on the night in Thomond Park Stadium.

With a seating capacity of 25,600 plus pitch standing, around 150,000 fans are due to see Sheeran perform his + – = ÷ x Tour across four nights in Thomond Park.

It is hoped that these crowds will greatly benefit the local economy by spending in Limerick hotels, bars and restaurants. 

The gigs are due to take place a week after Limerick’s annual Riverfest weekend, which is set to return to its pre-pandemic glory this year. 

The + – = ÷ x Tour, which kicks off in April 2022, will see English singer-songwriter Sheeran perform his new album ‘=’ across Ireland, the UK, Central Europe and Scandinavia, before returning to London’s Wembley Stadium for three nights in June/July.

The new tour will be the first time Sheeran plays stadium concerts since his infamous ‘Divide Tour,’ which took place from 2017 to 2019. A record-breaking 8.7 million people attended the tour’s three legs, making it the highest-grossing tour in music history.
