The Asia leg of Ed Sheeran’s Divide Tour is confirmed to go ahead, with some dates cancelled and rescheduled to 2018.
After Sheeran’s bicycle accident last week had cast doubt over his debut Asia tour, the singer announced today his visit will now begin in Singapore on Wednesday, November 11, followed by shows in Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Mumbai and Dubai as originally planned.
Shows in Manila, Osaka and Tokyo are postponed to April 8, 11, 13 and 14, 2018, respectively. Tickets for these shows will remain valid for the new dates.
Meanwhile, Taipei, Seoul, Hong Kong and Jakarta shows will not be able to go ahead due to scheduling conflicts and limited venue availability in April.
“We’re going to work really hard to try to find a time to reschedule [Taipei, Seoul, Hong Kong and Jakarta],” Sheeran adds in a video announcement, “but as it stands the shows right now have to be cancelled.”

“A follow-up visit to my doctors today confirmed that I will be good to go from the Singapore shows onwards. Osaka, Tokyo and Manila will be rescheduled for April 2018. My dates in Taipei, Seoul, Hong Kong and Jakarta will sadly need to be cancelled as it’s just been impossible to rescheduled these for next year. I’m really gutted that not all the postponed dates could be rescheduled and I am working hard with my team to try and come back to these places as soon as I can to see all of you. I’m sorry to everyone who has been affected by this.”
