DUBAI – Singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran said he could be taking a hiatus after touring the world for two years, telling fans “see you in a few years’ time”.
“I love that you guys are here and we are ending it in Ipswich. This is my last gig for probably 18 months,” he told fans at his Divide tour in England on August 26.
“It’s been an emotional day for a lot of people backstage. It kind of feels like, in a weird way, that you’re breaking up with a girlfriend that you’ve been with for years,” he said.
The “Perfect” singer faces courtroom battles, including a September 11 hearing for a $100-million lawsuit for his song “Thinking Out Loud”, which is allegedly plagiarized from Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On”.
He also faces a 2020 case for his 2017 single “Shape of You”, which is allegedly plagiarized from Sam Switch’s 2015 song “Oh Why”. Sheeran can’t receive royalties from Shape of You while the case is ongoing. The case will be heard in court in 2020. GAD/Expat Media
