Ed Sheeran accidentally reveals Aussie tour details on Today show

‘He’ll kill me for announcing this’: Ed Sheeran accidentally reveals Aussie tour details as he hints at the famous venue he wants to play Down Under

British singer Ed Sheeran has hinted an Australian tour could be announced soon.

The Thinking Out Loud star, 30, said during an interview on the Today show that he would like to play the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

He told reporter Richard Wilkins he was trying to organise a gig there with Matt Gudinski, the head of Frontier Touring and son of late music promoter Michael Gudinski.

‘Me and Matt are booking a venue that hopefully Michael always wanted me to do. I know Michael would be so buzzed,’ Ed said. 

‘Matt will kill me for announcing this but it begins with an M and ends in a G,’ he added, clearly alluding to the Melbourne Cricket Ground, better known as the MCG.

‘We will do it hopefully the next tour.’

‘I wish that I could come back properly to Australia, you know pop up and do the gorilla gigs,’ he said.

‘I’m going to try and make that happen at the end year if I can.’ 

Australia has just been hit with more Covid and border restrictions due to a recent outbreak, so a possible tour remains up in the air.

Ed was last in Australia for Michael Gudinski’s state funeral in Melbourne, where he performed with Kylie Minogue.

In addition to the hoped-for show at the MCG, the Shape of You hitmaker said he has not one, but two albums being released in the next 18 months.

Visiting Hours, the song he performed at Gudinski’s memorial, will be on one of the albums, he confirmed.

‘I actually got Jimmy Barnes and Kylie [Minogue] to sing backing vocals on it,’ he said.

In March, Kylie and Ed teamed up to deliver a touching performance as they joined a slew of stars for Gudinski’s state funeral at Rod Laver Arena.

During the memorial, Ed broke down in tears as he remembered his close friendship with the Mushroom Records founder.
