WATCH: Ed Sheeran fans brave the cold and rain to queue overnight for tickets to Croke Park gigs

Ed Sheeran is basking in the glory of a very successful night at the Brit Awards as his Irish fans queue online and at Ticketmaster outlets to secure tickets to his two Croke Park gigs.

Dedicated followers had already begun queuing at Ticketmaster outlets last night to ensure that they get to see their star.

Sheeran was named Best British Male at the Brit Awards last night and also got the award for his Album X.

Sheeran joked he was going to place a bet and "cash in" before the Croke Park concert was announced because there was 3/1 odds on him announcing the show.

"But I didn't get round to doing it," he said.

He said the Croke Park gig could be the biggest he has ever done, adding: "Ireland is my most successful market. It's the biggest market in the world for me."

The chart-topping musician will bring the curtain down on his 2015 stadium tour with two finale gigs in Croke Park.

The pre sale for the red-haired singer's Friday 24th July gig is now sold out, prompting Aiken Promotions to add another date.

The concert promoter has confirmed that Ed will play a second date at Croke Park, Dublin, Saturday 25th July.

Sheeran had originally intended to end his tour at Wembley Stadium but the chance to play Croker proved too enticing to turn down.
