Ed Sheeran Completes World Tour, Reveals He Will Be Taking A Long Break From Social Media


It looks like the internet will be Ed Sheeranless for several months. The 24-year-old British singer is understandably exhausted after completing his 16-month-long world tour this past weekend. For over a year now, Ed Sheeran has been one of the most successful (and hardest working) artists out there.

But now it’s time for a break. He posted a message to all his fans on his Instagram account hours after his final show in New Zealand.


Obviously, this news upset his fans, but most of them seemed to understand that he really needs this time away. Not to mention that it’s probably the perfect time for a break like this. In January, Sheeran will be having surgery on his ear after smashing it while jumping off a yacht. #richpeopleproblems

He announced the surgery news on Australian radio station Nova 96.9 FM. The singer explained he wouldn’t be able to fly for a while after the operation…

I landed wrong and it burst my ear drum so I have to go and get a graft, which means I’m not allowed to fly for a while, so it’s kind of good—it means I have to stay at home.

Like we mentioned above, he’s been touring for over a year now. He kicked off his x Tour back in August of last year in Japan. He definitely deserves the break. Singing on stage while having thousands of girls scream your name might not be the most difficult job in the world; however, if you do anything for that long, you’ll eventually lose your freaking mind.

Breaks are needed. Let the man rest.
