Global icon Ed Sheeran who used Salisbury recording studios for his latest album has just released his upcoming European tour dates.

Following Ed Sheeran’s public visit to Salisbury in July, fans took to Twitter to express their excitement.
Salisbury Mayor Caroline Corbin was disappointed she missed him and sent him an invitation for the next time.
She said: “It would have been nice to have him in the Guildhall and have done something.
“My message to him would be if you’re here next year just let me know and we’ll invite you over for tea.” ”
