The concert of the summer.
You might remember the sheer panic (excuse the pun) that occurred last year when Ed Sheeran tickets went on sale for his upcoming European tour.
A month ago, Anne Marie announced that she would be supporting the singer for this year’s concerts but now a second act has been announced.
Jamie Lawson is also set to join the Rockabye singer/songwriter and Ed, gearing up for some brilliant performances.
Jamie shared the news on Twitter this morning and it’s clear he’s over the moon at the chance to join two major musical talents in what’s a pretty impressive lineup.
Very excited to be opening up for what is bound to be an incredible tour and possibly THE BEST NIGHT OF YOUR LIFE! @AnneMarie, the boss himself, Mr @EdSheeran, and me! Can’t frickin’ wait! Jx pic.twitter.com/p0wxwotEwy

The Plymouth native is best known for Wasn’t Expecting That, which was an absolutely massive hit in Ireland in 2011.
Jamie is the first musician to sign to Ed’s own record label, Gingerbread Records, and the pals go way back having played together a number of times.
Ed has even taken on Jamie’s stunning song and made a fab job of it too.
