British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran (left) is the latest headliner booked for Blackpool Empress Ballroom.

Currently signed to Asylum/Atlantic records, the Halifax born performer who grew up in Farmlington, Suffolk, broke through commercially in June last year when his debut single The A Team debuted at number three on the UK chart.

At the time it was the highest-selling and highest-charting debut single of 2011.

His debut album, simply titled +, was also a best seller.

His Blackpool concert is on Thursday November 8 and tickets at £22 each went on sale today from 9am (maximum of four tickets per person, under 14s to be accompanied).
