Ed Sheeran announces Thetford Forest gig

Tickets to see Ed Sheeran in Thetford Forest have gone on sale after the singer announced a special gig in his home county of Suffolk next summer as part of Forestry Commission Live Music season.

Ed Sheeran has established himself as a prolific live performer with hundreds of gigs under his belt, building a legion of fans in the process. Following a succession of profile-raising EP’s, his No 1 debut album ‘+’ released last September has been a continuous fixture in the album charts and returned to the No 1 position at the beginning of 2012. It has generated infectious hit singles like ‘The A Team’, ‘Lego House’, and ‘You Need Me, I Don’t Need You’. Music industry accolades include 2011 Q Award for Breakthrough Artist and BBC Radio 1’s Teen Awards best single for ‘The A Team’.

Forestry Commission Live Music is an independent programme bringing music to new audiences without commercial branding or sponsorship. Income generated from ticket sales is spent on improving the local forests for both people and wildlife. Thetford Forest hosts up to six concerts each summer with full bar and catering services, ample onsite parking plus a dedicated taxi and private car drop off/pick-up zone.

Commenting on the forest date, Ed Sheeran said, “I am delighted to confirm this gig as my only East Anglian show in 2012. It will be a forest first for me and I can’t wait to get on stage amongst the trees and perform in such a unique place.”
