In Australia earlier this year for a promotional visit, Ed Sheeran will embark on his first headline tour of Australia and New Zealand this July and August.

The red-haired singer/songwriter is the latest British acoustic musician to capture the hearts of the UK public like James Blunt and James Morrison before him.

After dropping out of school, Sheeran forced a career for himself through relentless touring. In 2009 alone he played over 300 shows in the UK and Ireland. But it wasn't until 2001's debut album + that propelled him into the charts.

The album spawned singles like The A Team (which has gone platinum three times in Australia) as well as You Need Me, I Don't Need You and Lego House.
