Ed Sheeran to headline London's Wembley Stadium next summer

Ed Sheeran has announced the biggest show of his career to date, headlining London's Wembley Stadium next summer. 

The singer, whose second album x (which you can preview on the right of the page) has been one of the year's biggest success stories, will headline the 90,000 capacity stadium on July 10th next summer. 

Sheeran confirmed the news on Twitter, adding that this would be the last show of his tour in support of x. 

Tickets go onsale next Friday (November 28th) at 9am. You can find full details here. 

Sheeran recently confirmed that he will not be releasing his planned Christmas single until 2015. 

The singer had planned to release a new track for the festive season in the coming weeks, but has now pushed it back until next year as he doesn't want the public to get sick of him. 

He said: "(The Christmas song) won't be out this Christmas. I have 'Thinking Out Loud' as a single going into Christmas. If I saw an artist have a string of hits, an album that did well, a hit going into Christmas and then they did a Christmas single I'd think, 'Ooh, that's overkill'. If my song came out next year or the year after, when I haven't released anything for a while, it will be bigger."

Sheeran also spoke about his plans to take a break from music after his tour comes to an end next summer. 

He added: "I haven't had any time off since before I signed my record deal and I want some! I'll do what I enjoy and it won't feel like work."

The singer also said that new single 'Thinking Out Loud' would probably be the last to be taken from X, adding: "After 'Thinking Out Loud' I don’t think I should do another single from X. Three is a good number. I did six on the last album and it felt too much. You never go away and people get pissed off. Bruno Mars did three, Taylor Swift did three, Adele did three."
