Ed Sheeran announces Wembley supports

Ed Sheeran will be joined at Wembley Stadium by Onerepublic, Rudimental, Example and Passenger.

The 24-year-old singer will perform at the iconic venue for three nights in July and has now unveiled the support acts for the London gigs, with a different bill at each show.

Friday 10 July will see Onerepublic and Foy Vance open for him, with Rudimental - who recently teamed with Ed for a reworking of his latest single 'Bloodstream' - and Example taking to the stage the next night.

The final show, on Sunday 12 July, will see Onerepublic return to the venue, along with Passenger.

Though he has only just announced the line-up, the 'Thinking Out Loud' singer actually had the acts in place in December but admitted he wanted them to be a "surprise" for fans.

He said late last year: "I actually sorted the support acts before I'd even put [the tickets] on sale. I never want to play to someone else's crowd, I want my crowd to feel like they have a treat - I'm saying 'Here's a wicked support act that you can watch, that you didn't know was going to be there'. It's more of a surprise."
