If you missed out on tickets for Ed Sheeran's gigs in Dublin and Cork when they went on sale on Saturday, there's a light on the horizon.

With promoters having warned of the dangers of buying fraudulent or invalid tickets, Sheeran has just added an extra date in both cities.

Over 300,000 tickets for his 7-date run next May were sold on Saturday, making it the most tickets ever sold by an artist in one day.

He'll now play Cork's Pairc Ui Chaoimh on May 4th, 5th and 6th (extra date) and Dublin's Phoenix Park on May 16th, 18th and 19th (extra date).

Tickets for the extra dates are on sale from usual outlets this Saturday, July 15th at 9am.
