ATLANTA – Ed Sheeran is coming to the ATL.

The British singer-songwriter turned pop sensation announced on Twitter Wednesday that he will be touring across North America in support of his newly released third album, Divide.

Sheeran’s announcement coincided with an appearance on NBC’s TODAY.

“First of all, did your tweet go out?” asked TODAY host Carson Daly. “Did you make the big announcement on the tour, did that go out?”

Sheeran replied, “I don’t know, let’s just make it now.”

Sheeran’s tour will have him perform 48 times over the course of four months, including three September shows in the Carolinas. After performing at PNC Arena in Raleigh on Saturday, September 2, Sheeran will bring his show to uptown Charlotte and the Spectrum Center on September 3.

Concert tickets for Sheeran’s tour will go on sale beginning March 17, but a special pre-sale for fans will begin at 10 a.m. on March 13.
