Suffolk singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran has released dates for his stadium tour across the UK next year- but he won't be bringing the show to his home county.

The list of tour dates were announced for his much-anticipated tour this morning.

Speaking on Heart radio, the Framlingham star has said he "really really wants to perform at Portman Road at some point."

I really really want to play Portman road, but you get tied into deals if you are playing Wembley.

That's like your East and South of England gig. I will definitely play Portman Road at some point, that's one thing I really want to do.

– Ed Sheeran, Speaking on Heart FM

Ed's love of Suffolk was referenced in his song "Castle on the Hill" and appears on his third album ÷ (Divide).

The singer teased his fans on Twitter that there are more dates to come on his tour.
