Taiwanese fans of British pop star Ed Sheeran, who is at the moment scoring a huge hit worldwide with the song “Shape Of You,” will only have to wait until October 22 to see their idol perform live in Taipei! According to Ed Sheeran’s official webpage, the singer added 9 more cities to his Asia tour this year, and first on the list, is Taipei for October 22nd.
He has sold more than 22 million records worldwide, with his current album, named “÷” or “Divide” reportedly selling 1 million copies within two weeks of its release. Songs like “Castle On The Hill” and the Irish-tinged “Galway Girl” have become big hits, though none of them as much as “Shape Of You,” which he reportedly first wrote with the intention of Rihanna recording the song. The video of the song shows a heavily tattooed Sheeran training for a boxing match with a young African-American woman but ending up on the floor against sumo wrestler Yama.
The 26-year-old Grammy-winner returned from a year-long hiatus and social media break late last year, and gradually released his third album “ ÷ ” (read as “Divide”) over January this year. Rumour is the multi-talented artist is also to have a guest starring role on the HBO smash-hit fantasy series “Game of Thrones“.
