Sheeran prides himself on rarely — if ever — using a backing band, so it makes sense he's not moving forward with the ÷ tour as planned. On the marginally brighter side, "Shape of You" is still in heavy rotation on the radio, so even if he's not performing live at the moment, you can still enjoy his music. Plus, he already has concerts scheduled through the end of 2018, so he has plenty of opportunities to make up for lost time.- Deepa Lakshmin
A visit to my doctors confirmed fractures in my right wrist and left elbow that will leave me unable to perform live concerts for the immediate future. Sadly, this means that the following shows will not be able to go ahead as planned: Taipei, Osaka, Seoul, Tokyo and Hong Kong. I'm waiting to see how the healing progresses before we have to decide on shows beyond that. Please stay tuned for more details. PS - Ed isn't typing this as he has both arms casted/bandaged.
