The tour announcement comes on the heels of the acclaimed singer-songwriter’s triumphant night at the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards, where Sheeran was nominated for three awards, including the prestigious “Album of the Year” for his RIAA platinum-certified album “x” (pronounced multiply). Sheeran’s other nominations came in the categories for “Best Pop Vocal Album” and “Best Song Written for Visual Media” for his song “I See Fire” from the feature film “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.” Sheeran also received one of the biggest ovations of the night for his performance of his RIAA-certified Platinum single “Thinking Out Loud,” where he was joined by GRAMMY winners Herbie Hancock, John Mayer and Questlove. Sheeran returned to the stage to perform with the legendary Jeff Lynne’s ELO. Both “x” and “Thinking Out Loud” shot to #1 on iTunes immediately following his appearance.
