Fans were blindsided at a Sheeran performance Monday night when the artist announced he was stepping away from the music scene.
From The Irish Post:
"As you may or not know, I've been on the Divide tour for over two years now and this is the last day of the whole thing,” he said.
"There is something very bittersweet about it. I love that you guys are here and we are ending it in Ipswich. This is my last gig for probably 18 months.
"We've played all around the world. Glastonbury, Wembley Stadium. All these amazing venues, America, New Zealand, Australia, Asia, South America - it's been a wild one."
Sheeran has made it well known how much he wants to start a family with his childhood sweetheart so I'm personally glad to see he's decided to retire, at least for the time being!
