Singer Ed Sheeran is reportedly interested in playing another gig in Ireland this year.

The 23-year-old star recently returned to Ireland for an intimate concert in Whelan's pub last month. The UK singer performed to around 400 fans in the Dublin pub.

However, a source told the Herald that Ed is keen on returning to Ireland at some stage this year to perform on a larger scale.

"He said in Whelan's that he would be interested in gigging in Ireland again this year, but in a bigger venue with a larger audience," the source said.

The singer is also set to perform with Jeff Lynne's ELO at the 57th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday - as well as Irish star Hozier.

The performance will take place on the same evening as the musician discovers whether he has won his first Grammy award, having been nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album and Album of the Year for X, as well as Best Song Written for Visual Media for I See Fire.
