Have we told you that we're excited about Ed Sheeran performing in Dubai later this year? Well, we are CRAZY EXCITED. The redhead is returning to Dubai after a mega successful first visit in 2016. Now he has announced his support act and we are even happier. Yeah, we didn't think that was possible either.
Lauv will support Ed Sheeran in November
Sadly tickets for Ed's show in November 2017 have now sold-out but that doesn't mean we don't still feel giddy when we hear the Galway Girl singer's name.

Ed's support act will be Lauv, an act Ed has long supported himself.
Lauv, aka Ari Leff, is a LA-based singer/songwriter with a penchant for playing the guitar. He's a deep soul, writing about love and heartbreak “For whatever reason, before I ever had any sort of relationship, I had this weird obsession with writing love songs and breakup songs. I remember being a kid and my dad asking me, ‘Why do you write all these sad songs all the time?’ But to me that’s always been one of the most beautiful ways to connect with people on a real level. There’s nothing like openness of being in love, and for me that vulnerability is maybe the most important part of being alive.”

Tickets have already sold out for the gig
They're also the sort of songs that do really, really well in the charts so, yay for Lauv!
We cannot wait to see both Lauv and his biggest fan Ed performing at the Autism Rocks Arena, Dubai, on 23 November.
