Hardcore Ed Sheeran fans, known as Sheerios, are being given a second chance to get their hands on tickets to the singer's Irish gigs as two extra dates were added to the tour.

Last weekend, more than 300,000 tickets for his seven original dates sold out, marking the biggest ever number of tickets sold by an artist in Ireland in one day.

Yesterday, it was announced that extra gigs would take place at Cork's Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Sunday, May 6, 2018, and Dublin's Phoenix Park on Saturday May 19.

Sheeran is already slated to play Dublin, Cork, Galway, and Belfast throughout May 2018.

Tickets for the extra concerts go on sale this Saturday at 9am.

"By choosing to bring his incredible new show around Ireland, Ed has created unbelievable excitement all over the country," a statement from Aiken Promotions said.

"His fans have embraced this with wide open arms, buying tickets in unprecedented numbers."
