Singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran has added an extra date to his Irish tour stop as he returns for his first headlining gig since last autumn.

The guitarist added a date on October 5 as he plans to take to the stage at The 02 Dublin.

Fans of the Grammy-nominated artist can pick up their tickets this morning from 9am.

He had previously announced that he would play The O2 Dublin on October 6.

Known for his unusual blend of folk and hip-hop music, the singer will tour Ireland and the UK after he toured North America as the main support act for Taylor Swift.

Tickets for the gig cost €42.55.

“I can't wait to tour this new record, it's been a long time coming. Looking forward to touring the UK and Ireland once again,’’ he said.

The 22-year-old finished off his busy year with a pair of nominations for the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, including one for “Best New Artist.’’

The songwriter entered the UK album chart at number one with the highest opening week figures for a debut male solo artist ever.

He has won two Brit Awards for Best Male Artist and Best Breakthrough Artist.

After touring with fellow guitarist Taylor, he returned to New York City for a trio of sold-out headlining shows at the world-famous Madison Square Garden.
