With over one hundred thousand tickets already sold through pre-sale, Ed Sheeran’s stadium tour is shaping up to be one of the biggest tours of the summer. Frontier Touring are excited to announce that Ed Sheeran will be joined by Rudimental and Foy Vance for an unforgettable run of stadium shows this November and December.

Brit Award winning & Mercury Prize-nominated Londoners Rudimental last played Australia and New Zealand in 2014, touring in celebration of their global smash debut album Home which is jam-packed with anthems like ‘Not Giving In’ (ft. John Newman & Alex Clare), ‘Waiting All Night’ (ft. Ella Eyre) and ‘Free’ (ft. Emeli Sandé):

Home is a sumptuous, thrilling experience on a purely sonic level. There are absolutely zero boring moments here, and the details are often transcendent.’ – SPIN

‘A skittering collage of vocal drum’n’bass, garage, and funky house that parties, in the best way, like it’s July 1999.’ – The Independent

Earlier this week the UK four-piece gave fans a taste of their forthcoming sophomore album (due for release later this year through Warner Music) with lead single ‘Never Let You Go’, featuring Foy Vance. The track picks up where their debut album left off with the perfect balance of toe-tapping percussion, layered harmonies and a rollicking horn section.

No strangers to working together, Sheeran collaborated with Rudimental for ‘Bloodstream’, taken from his latest album x. The accompanying music video features iconic American actor Ray Liotta as a washed-up frontman of a fictional hair-metal group, click here to view.

Foy Vance, Sheeran’s close friend and collaborator, will be opening proceedings at all shows. The Irish troubadour was born in Northern Ireland and spent part of his youth in Oklahoma where he developed a love for soul, blues and jazz. His songwriting reflects the careful balance between his love of these styles and his homeland’s folk music roots.

Vance’s debut album Joy of Nothing was released to critical acclaim in 2013 and received the inaugural Northern Irish Music Prize for Best Album:

‘…a richly detailed album that is sumptuously orchestrated’ – The 405

‘Vance writes with passion, with tenderness and with no small amount of insight about the impact of love gone wrong on those who find themselves trying to pick up the pieces and move on with life when it all goes south.’ – The Guardian

Earlier this year, the Irish troubadour released Live At Bangor Abbey (out now through Liberator Music/Glassnote Records), recorded live in his hometown of Bangor in Northern England. Click here to view the official ‘making of’ trailer.
