Ed Sheeran performs in concert during his "The ÷ Tour" at The Wells Fargo Center on July 11, 2017 in Philadelphia.
Ed Sheeran will start his Asia tour Nov. 11 in Singapore. The tour dates in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Mumbai and Dubai will go ahead as scheduled.
Osaka, Tokyo and Manila tour dates will be rescheduled to April 2018. See the full dates and venues below. All tickets for the original shows will remain valid for the new dates.
The artists explain that despite best efforts, due to scheduling conflicts and limited venue availability in April 2018, he has been forced to cancel his tour dates in Taipei, Seoul, Hong Kong and Jakarta.
Sheeran's AEG Asia official statement reads: "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 reschedule 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."
Fans from Hong Kong and Indonesia are expressing their disappointed about the news in comments on AEG and Sheeran's Instagram, with one fan writing, "I won't blame Ed. I blame that goddamn bicycle that has ruined everything."
