Ed Sheeran Confirms Line-Up Of Talented Opening Acts On Record-Breaking Tour

Ed Sheeran’s record-breaking Australian and New Zealand tour begins in exactly one week’s time! Hitting seven cities for a whopping eighteen stadium shows, this will be the biggest concert tour in our region’s history.

Joining the already announced Drax Project (all Auckland shows), and Six60 (all Dunedin shows) as special guests across the tour, Frontier Touring are delighted to confirm two further talented artists who will open proceedings at the New Zealand shows.

Wellington folk duo LOST BiRD will join Ed at all three of his Auckland shows. Made up of Ali Whitton (guitar, vocals) and Oliver Vetter (violin, vocals), the pair blend piercing and poetic lyrics with plaintive and raw melodies to create a sound that is uniquely their own. They have built a steadfast following of fans thanks in part to their live shows which are loved for both their music and the quick-witted banter between songs.

Joining the already huge bill in Dunedin is New Zealand singer-songwriter Mitch Jameswho will open Ed’s three southern shows. The Auckland native moved to London at just 17 and spent the following three years busking throughout the UK and Europe. Moving south to Dunedin upon his return, Mitch has since released two singles which have picked up nation-wide airplay and has a huge following of fans eagerly awaiting his debut album.

Ed has smashed the Australasian record for the largest number of stadium shows on one single tour with a mammoth 18-date Australia and New Zealand stadium run.  With ticket sales already exceeding 950,000, Ed also broke the long-standing Dire Strait’s 1986 record for the most tickets sold on one tour of Australia and New Zealand.

From theatres to stadiums, Ed has sold out every single show on his four tours of our shores, collecting countless shining reviews along the way. Don’t miss the chance to be a part of this record-breaking tour that is now just one week away from starting in Australia!
