If you are looking to register for the upcoming Ed Sheeran (also known as Ed) tour, there are a few options available. Ed Sheeran is one of the world’s most popular singers and songwriters, known for hits like “Shape of You,” “Thinking Out Loud,” and “Perfect.” His upcoming tour, called the “+” Tour or Mathematics Tour, is highly anticipated by fans across the globe.
Registering for Pre-Sale Tickets
Many concerts, including Ed Sheeran’s tour, offer pre-sale ticket opportunities before the tickets go on sale to the general public. Pre-sale tickets give fans early access to purchase tickets. There are a few ways to get pre-sale ticket access:
- Join Ed’s official fan club. By joining as a paying member, you will get a special pre-sale code emailed to you before pre-sales begin. This is one of the best ways to guarantee you can buy pre-sale tickets.
- Sign up for the mailing list or connect with Ed Sheeran on social media. Artists will sometimes share pre-sale codes with followers on platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.
- Check with your local radio station or streaming music service. Stations that promote Ed’s music may distribute pre-sale codes to listeners.
- Purchase an album or merchandise. Buying Ed Sheeran’s products online may provide you a code for ticket pre-sales.
Once you have a valid pre-sale code, you can register for tickets on sites like Ticketmaster when the pre-sales open. This gives you early access before the general public.
Buying Tickets During General Sale
If you don’t acquire pre-sale ticket access, you can try purchasing tickets when they go on sale to the general public. Here are some tips:
- Mark your calendar with the on-sale dates and times. Ed Sheeran’s website and social media will advertise when this is.
- Visit Ticketmaster or the box office site ahead of time and make an account. This saves time during checkout.
- Get online early and join the ticket queue as soon as it opens to increase your chances.
- Have payment options ready on the ticketing site to check out faster once tickets are available.
- Aim for single seats rather than groups if tickets are selling out quickly. It’s easier to get singles.
Persistence and speed are key when trying to buy the high-demand tickets during a general on-sale. Keep trying if tickets initially sell out – more are sometimes released later.
Registering for Verified Fan Presales
For very popular tours like Ed Sheeran’s, Ticketmaster and other sites are now using Verified Fan presales. This requires fans to register in advance and get a special code. Here is how it works:
- When the tour is announced, register for Ticketmaster Verified Fan. This is free but requires you provide your contact and payment information.
- Ticketmaster verifies you are an actual fan and not a scalper trying to scoop up tickets. This includes looking at your past purchase history.
- If verified, you will be emailed a code to access the Verified Fan presale before tickets go on sale to the general public.
- Use your special code to register for tickets on the presale date. This improves your chances compared to the chaotic general sale.
The registration for Verified Fan typically opens weeks before the actual ticket presale. So be sure to sign up as early as possible after the tour is announced.
Using a Ticket Reseller
If you strike out getting tickets from the primary source, there are many ticket resale sites you can use. Some popular options include:
Keep in mind prices are often higher on these resale sites. Make sure to compare prices across a few sites to get the best deal. Also beware of potential scams and fake tickets.
Registering for Presales in Person
In some cases, you may be able to register for presale tickets in person at a physical box office location. Check the tour site or local venue sites to see if this is an option. You typically need to show up early on the presale date and register in person when the box office opens. This avoids dealing with crowded websites when presales start online.
Joining an Official Fan Club
As mentioned earlier, joining Ed Sheeran’s official fan club (called The Songwriter’s Club) provides great presale ticket access. Here is more detail on how to join:
- Visit edsheeran.com/songwritersclub to begin registration.
- Select your membership level. Options range from £5 to £50 per year.
- Higher tiers offer the best presale ticket access. The £50 Titanium membership has the earliest presale access.
- Provide your contact and payment details to complete registration.
Once registered, you will get special presale code emails before each tour’s tickets go on sale. This gives you the best shot at getting good seats before everyone else.
Registering for in-demand concert tours like Ed Sheeran’s requires planning and effort. Join fan clubs, look for presales, and be ready to buy early. With persistence and preparation, you can hopefully secure tickets to see one of the world’s biggest music superstars live on stage.
