It’s the end of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Divide’ Tour! But is Ed Sheeran retiring too?
We cannot imagine going through life without Ed Sheeran songs. Declaring love with his song ‘Perfect’ or going through breakups with ‘Happier’ on our playlists. But he just ended his two-year ‘Divide’ Tour last August 27 and announced that he will be going on hiatus! Is Ed Sheeran retiring?
Ed Sheeran is NOT retiring!
After his fifteen-year music career, Ed Sheeran is officially taking a break from the spotlight. And we honestly think it’s a well-deserved break. Because after years of dedicating his life to bring great music into the world, he deserves it all. But during his recently concluded ‘Divide’ Tour he announced that he’ll be going on an 18-month hiatus.
“This is my last gig for probably 18 months… Thank you to everyone who has given me a chance. See you in a few years time. Thank you.”
How he ended the tour was very emotional and heartfelt. And also said his final farewell to the ‘Divide’ Tour on his Instagram with this post:

9 million people, 893 days, 46 countries, 175 cities, 260 shows, 268 touring crew, 193265 miles travelled, 2 broken arms, 3 marriages, 4 babies. What a wild ride this Divide tour has been. The whole process of writing the album starting in 2015, then recording it in 2016, promoting it, setting out on the road to play it for all of you guys. It’s so weird to put it to bed and move on. Thank you to everyone involved in this whole Divide process, all the people who helped make the album, all the people who helped promote the album, all the fans who listened and came to watch, this wouldn’t be possible without you. Most of all I want to thank my fantastic touring team, who have given up their lives for 2 and a half years to help me achieve my dreams. Thank you for all of your hard work and constant friendship. The Divide tour – 2017 -2019. Officially the biggest tour of all time, so weird to say that, and we survived it !

But fans started panicking thinking he may be retiring. Since he did say that he’ll retire from music once he and his wife, Cherry, start having children. And 18 months is definitely enough time to do that.
We’re really sure he’s not retiring!
But he quickly put the rumours to rest by posting on his Instagram stories saying:
“Press are being over dramatic. I’m having 18 months off to make another album and hang out with my cats… I’m not bloody retiring either.”
And it looks like he’s doing just that:
Enjoy your time to rest Ed! And we’ll be anticipating your return! So were you one of the people who thought Ed Sheeran was going to retire? Share with us your thoughts in the comments down below. Or hit us up on our Facebook or Twitter @UDoUPh.
