The news follows his sell-out gig at the 3Arena last year.

Management for the star have confirmed that tickets will not be available to purchase, and are remaining tight lipped on how to access them.

As part of the ‘Storyteller’ series, artists are prompted to play in locations that have a special meaning to them.

Lovable star Sheeran chose the venue as it was where he witnessed a gig that bares particular resonance.

"It's amazing to come back to perform at a place that means so much to me personally," he told the outlet. "I was only about 11 or 12 years old when I saw Damien play at Whelan’s, and that night literally changed my life.

“The time he spent talking with me after the show made all the difference. It inspired me in a way that I only hope to do for someone else."

Only 400 lucky music lovers will gain access to the show on January 24th, but it is yet to be revealed how they will be selected.

The chart topper took home the ‘Favorite Male Artist’ award at the People’s Choice Awards in Los Angeles last night.
