Hope you all got your tickets.

Will not be going to any of the Uk dates this year, first time we'll have missed a tour since 2008. As said by other people on FB, tickets too dear for any decent seats at Brighton and Bournemouth!

Just dropping this here. There's NO confirmation that James will be the support act yet. Stay tuned and brace yourself if it's the case. Tickets sales are going to be a nightmare.

I would advise getting these tickets just in case James is the support act. But nothing is confirmed... Obviously...

Thanks Billy...

Interview last night in which James gives a tiny hint about the North American tour... Not confirmed yet!

https://audioboom.com/posts/5686281-james-blunt-tells-us-who-really-writes-his-sarcastic-twitter-put-downs,

If you want to buy tickets for Ed Sheeran and would like to get access to the pre-sales on Monday March 13th, I urge you to read all the details given on this website. You need to do a pre-registration before 10am ET on March 10th. And there's even an exception for Quebec City, you have to send an email to get a code. If you think the pre-sales are tough in Europe, welcome to North America.

OMG! Is that for real?! I see at least three that are very doable and close! And even more!!! If James doesn't tour with Ed I will hunt him down!!! I didn't get to see even ONE show last tour and this is like a kid in a candy store!! What a beautiful list!! I don't want to get my hopes up but James mentioned they might tour together and they have a bromance going on and they wrote the album together so why not say that James is touring with Ed??? Why keep us hanging? I'm not buying tickets unless I know James is touring WITH Ed!! That's my final answer! Pffffffffft. Kiss my grits!!!!

I'll wait.........

Please James! Come through for us here in the states!!!!

@hookedonJames

I understand that you want to be absolutely sure that James is the support act, but don't wait to pre-register on Ed Sheeran's website to get a code next Monday for the pre-sales. Of course, that is if you want to access the pre-sales. There are a few steps to get through and the limit to pre-register is 10am ET on Friday March 10th. I expect the tour will be sold out within a short delay when tickets go on general sale.

... long sigh ... It looks like I'lll miss the show when it comes to my city, as I'll be gone.


Edit: It looks like James have been working really hard promoting this new album. It really would be great to attend one of his shows. Unfortunately, this coincide with my planned vacation with others, hotels have been booked.

Thanks jbfan and LD. I still want to know if James will be playing with Ed! Why can't they just tell us?? Doesn't James know if he will be playing with Ed or not? Why keep that a secret? I don't get it. I also think Ed is very good but everyone is different as to who they want to see live. I think it's not right to not tell us before the tickets go on sale if James will be there or not.

Hi Hooked. It's great that you might be able to see James on tour with Ed in the States. But don't get too excited just yet, because if it's anything like the pre sales and general sales of Eds tour in UK, you will be very lucky to get one show ticket , let alone multiple. I was lucky enough to see Ed on his last tour a few times but there was no chance of getting tickets this time around and that was without James fans trying as well. But I really wish you all the luck in the world. My fingers are crossed for you xxx

I was thinking the same thing, in the UK all Eds tickets sold really fast and are now listed with a mark up of 400% or more on the official reselling sites!

Thanks, TKCherry. But my problem is that I don't know for sure if James is even going to tour with Ed. They aren't confirming it so we have no idea if he is or isn't. I'm not going to buy tickets unless I know for sure. If they don't announce it and I don't get tickets and James ends up touring with Ed and playing an hour from my house then I'm not sure what I will think of the whole thing. I'm not a fan of this kind of game.

LD, yeah but I'm not buying tickets and just taking a chance so I guess I will be screwed. I like Ed but not gonna go unless James is with him. I hope they will make an announcement before the tickets go on sale. I think I will become a huge pest and keep repeating myself so they will do it just to shut me up.

Hi Hooked -

The ticket vendor for these sales, Tickemaster, now has a feature that allows verified ticket holders to resell tickets they do not want. This is an option if you want to get the tickets IF James is playing but would not go if it was someone else supporting Ed Sheeran. For the record, I've put my name in for 3 shows but if it turns out James is not supporting, I'd probably resell tickets for two of them. I like Ed's music enough that I'd want to attend the show closest to me anyhow.

I think it's great that James and Ed have enjoyed working together so much that they're looking at touring together. It's not as easy as it looks - they both release their work on different record companies, so there's more than just worrying about the two of them heading off together. Record companies frequently depend on "big names" to help out by having "new artists" from the same label open for them when on tour. So although it's likely that an agreement can be reached, it's one that involves "my people talking to your people", so to speak.

Annec xx

Got tickets for Ed Sheeran in Quebec City and Montreal. The pre-sales are always a stressful moment but technically speaking, the new Ticketmaster Verified Fan process seems to work well. Now, it would be wonderful to see an official confirmation of James being the support act.

Hi Annec

Thanks for the info. That's very interesting that you can keep the tickets or resell them. I wonder if you can be fairly sure that you will get your money back or if it's just a gamble. It's a good idea though. I didn't do the pre-sale so I would have to wait until the regular tickets go on sale. I suppose that resell option would be for pre-sale and regular tickets?

I think it's confusing that we saw articles saying James and Ed are going to tour together but it wasn't actually confirmed? Seems like jumping the gun, but as you say there is a lot involved in it.

Well, I still don't know what I'm going to do. I'm still hoping we will hear something more about it. I don't think there's any word on James having dates in the states on his own as far as I know either so maybe that will come later, too.

Only managed to get tickets for Buffalo - no luck with either presale in Toronto, and I won't be able to go online when the regular sale starts. It will feel strange to know James is [likely] performing in Toronto and I won't be able to get there! Will have to play it by ear.

Yeah, it doesn't seem like they are gonna tell us if James will be with Ed or not. I guess maybe it's too much of a commitment for James to do all those dates with Ed and then have his own tour to do as well. And if he chooses certain dates to join Ed then the other dates he doesn't join him, ppl could be upset about it. It's really a difficult situation if you think about it. When I saw all those dates and some were very close to me, I told myself that it looks too good to be true. And I guess it is. What a shame.

But I have to give it to Ed for such a great list of dates and venues.

Why do you think it is too good to be true? There's a nearly-zero chance that James will be able to do his own headlining tour in North America; even his last few tours have hit very limited areas, in small venues that in many cases barely brought in enough revenue to pay for the shows.

It makes perfect sense that James will open for Ed. They have both openly hinted that it's likely to happen. Billy himself has pretty strongly urged us to seriously consider purchasing tickets for Ed's shows, and I'm sure that's not just because Ed is James's mate. (I've never seen Billy promote another artist who was not performing with James in the 12 years I've been on this forum.)

And there's the added bonus that, if it turns out not to be true, you should be able to dump Ed Sheeran tickets for at least your cost. Or you might just go anyway and find out you really like Ed's music too. I'm pretty sure they're waiting until after the tickets go on sale to the public to announce James will be the opening act. And if I'm wrong...well, tickets right near mine in Buffalo have already been scooped up in the after-market. Or I might just go and hear Ed...

Umm...I don't know. I'm going to have to side with hooked here.
There's no reason for James to latch onto Ed's coat tails. With the right promotion here in North America I don't see why "The Afterlove" couldn't be a total hit on the charts to spark decent sized venues.
I don't like seeing James at the ACC anyway. Too big. Less intimate. Takes away something special from his performance.
I like Ed, but personally don't like the idea James may open for him.


Spinning on my heels....so far away from real <3

Annec, when I said James had his own tour to do, I was talking about his European tour dates that are published. But now that I look at the dates for James' tour, they start after this string of dates that Ed has listed which I suppose could be pretty telling that James could be touring with Ed. Also, James is the one that chooses to make new albums. To me, if you are gonna make an album then you have to go all the way with it. Why limit yourself to a few countries to tour in? If you can promote yourself enough and put yourself out there in say the US and Canada and other places, and have dates like the ones listed for Ed, maybe James can become more popular in those areas. I agree with Trinity that it's all in the promotion and having the confidence to do it on your own.

If he keeps doing the same thing by not having a proper tour here, then how will anything change or be different? If he loses a little money in the process then at least he tried and knows for sure. But I am not an expert on this kind of thing. I just feel that it's sad that they aren't even announcing James will be with Ed until after the tickets go on sale--if he is going to tour with Ed. Do they feel James isn't an asset but rather a liability? Don't they have any faith in James? I just think it's not helping James by keeping things hidden and not putting him out there more. Sorry, that's my two cents. If he is gonna keep making albums, then I think he needs to take a chance and take the plunge and try to tour in more areas and not just the few that play his music.

I love everything about the idea of James being part of Ed Sheeran's N. American tour.

Ed Sheeran is a huge deal here in the states and while James has done well on his own here, the enormity of (new) audience James could be exposed to on a 48-city tour is pretty impressive. To me, it makes a lot of sense to pair up with someone as big as Ed is right now, it can only increase his exposure and audience.
The results of that kind of tour could be highly lucrative for James.

Incredible Ed has added more dates on his North American tour and we're now talking of 60 dates!

Still no official confirmation about James.
