Ed Sheeran announces Missy Higgins as special guest on next month’s record-breaking tour

Australia and New Zealand’s biggest ever tour is less than a month away! Ed Sheeran’s 18-date stadium tour kicks off with the first ever show at Perth’s Optus Stadium in just over three weeks’ time.

Adding to the already soaring levels of excitement and anticipation surrounding the shows, Frontier Touring are thrilled to confirm the special guests who will be sharing support duties across Ed’s tour, including Missy Higgins for all the Australian shows.

Ed Sheeran said of the announcement “I’m very excited to announce the main special guests for my Australian and New Zealand dates. 

“In Australia Missy Higgins will be joining me, which I’m very happy about as I’m a long-time fan of her music.

“And we’ve got some more acts to announce shortly, so stay tuned! Looking forward to seeing everyone very soon.”

Sharing Ed’s innate and captivating talent for songwriting, Missy Higgins will join the tour as special guest for all twelve Australian stadium shows next month. One of the most successful and acclaimed female singer/songwriters in Australian music history, Missy has sold over a million albums in this country, enjoyed multiple #1 hits and won 9 ARIA Awards.

“I’m profoundly grateful for the opportunity to share a stage with Ed and play to so many people but it’s already giving me butterflies. I don’t know whether I’m excited or terrified – probably a bit of both!”, said Higgins.

Missy first came to prominence in 2004 with acclaimed debut album The Sound Of White, featuring much-loved tracks like ‘Scar’, ‘The Special Two’ and ‘Ten Days’, with albums On A Clear Night, The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle and OZ following. Today, Missy announced the latest addition to her already impressive catalogue with brand new single ‘Futon Couch’ – the first taste of Missy’s first album of original songs in six years, Solastalgia. Those in attendance at one of Ed’s shows may be among the first in the world to hear some of these new tracks performed live!

Ed has smashed the Australasian record for the largest number of stadium shows on one single tour with a mammoth 18-date Australia and New Zealand stadium run. With ticket sales already exceeding 950,000, Ed also broke the long-standing Dire Strait’s 1986 record for the most tickets sold on one tour of Australia and New Zealand.

From theatres to stadiums, Ed has sold out every single show on his four tours of our shores, collecting countless shining reviews along the way.
