24 June – Glasgow, Bellahouston Park
26 June – London, London Stadium
27 June – Huddersfield, The John Smith’s Stadium
29 June – Dublin, RDS Arena

To coincide with the announcement of the tour, all three bands released brand new singles.

Green Day debuted ‘Father Of All…’, the lead track from their 13th studio album of the same name, which is set for release on 7 February 2020.

Fall Out Boy – who are releasing a best of collection titled ‘Greatest Hits: Believers Never Die – Volume Two’ in November – premiered their new single ‘Future Self (Hands Up)’, which features Wyclef Jean of all people.

Weezer – whose first two albums The Blue Album and Pinkerton remain some of the finest indie-rock records around – released ‘The End of the Game’, which will be included on their 14th studio album Van Weezer – due out in May 2020.

How do I get tickets?

Tickets for The Hella Mega Tour will go sale on 20 September from 10am.

Ed Sheeran setlist: the full list of potential songs for Leeds and Ipswich concerts, based on the rest of his tour

Ed Sheeran, one of the biggest pop stars in the world, is embarking on something of a UK tour over the next couple of weeks.

He takes to the stage tonight and tomorrow night (16 and 17 August) in Leeds’ Roundhay Park, supported by Lewis Capaldi and The Darkness.

Then, Sheeran heads to his home county of Suffolk for four nights in Ipswich; Chantry Park is the venue for a quartet of massive concerts.

But what might Sheeran play? With four albums under his belt (including the recently released No.6 Collaborations Project), the 28-year old certainly has an extensive back catalogue to choose from.

According to setlist.fm, which compiles artists’ setlists from across their tours, Ed Sheeran’s “average” choice of songs in 2019 looks like this:

‘Castle on the Hill’
‘Eraser’
‘The A Team’
‘Don’t’ / ‘New Man’
‘Dive’
‘Bloodstream’
‘I Don’t Care’
‘Tenerife Sea’
‘Galway Girl’
‘Poor Wayfaring Stranger’ / ‘I See Fire’
‘Thinking Out Loud’
‘Photograph’
‘One’
‘Perfect’
‘Nancy Mulligan’
‘Sing’

Encore:
‘Shape of You’
‘You Need Me, I Don’t Need You’

It looks like fans will get a chance to hear all of the big hits.

And despite being a couple of years old, it’s Sheeran’s 2017 album ÷ that seems to be getting the most attention in the singer-songwriter’s sets.
