Bridge Classic Cars at Ed Sheeran’s homecoming gigs in Chantry Park, Ipswich

On Friday 23rd August 2019 Ipswich welcomed home Ed Sheeran for four nights at Chantry Park as he completed his two year Divide tour back home with us.

Bridge Classic Cars attended two of the four nights. Mauro and Gordon had an amazing time on the opening night.

And Craig was amongst the 40,000 spending Saturday night in the park to see the incredible show, supported by Passenger, The Darkness.

Ed Sheeran kicked off the final stop on his record-breaking world tour in front of his home fans.

The singer-songwriter told the crowd of 40,000 on Friday he was “so happy” to be ending his Divide tour over four nights in Ipswich.

He was supported by fellow Suffolk rockers The Darkness and a local act chosen through BBC Introducing.

By the end of the tour the 28-year-old will have spent 893 days on the road, eclipsing U2’s previous 760-day mark.

Fans began queuing at dawn to get their spots at the front, with some having travelled thousands of miles to be there.

“This feels really, really weird and cool for me to be able to stand on stage in the place that I was brought up and that I live,” said Sheeran.

“I did do the typical musician thing where you think that you have to move to LA, so I moved to LA and hated everything about it.

“But I’ve lived back here for sort of, like, seven years and I just love being here and I’m so happy to be able to end the tour here.”
