September 14 & 15, 2018

 

Attending the concert? Gillette Stadium officials would like to remind fans attending the September 14 and 15shows of important ticketholder information and policies in place at the stadium.

Three years ago, Sheeran headlined his first NFL stadium in front of a sold out crowd of more than 52,000 fans at Gillette Stadium. It was Sheeran’s largest U.S. concert crowd at the time and helped launch his first North American stadium tour in 2018. Sheeran first performed at Gillette Stadium in 2013 when he opened for Taylor Swift on both nights of her RED Tour.

 

The Sept. 14 and 15 shows will start at 7:00 p.m. with parking lots opening at 3:00 p.m. and gates at 5:30 p.m. Special guests Snow Patrol and Anne-Marie will provide support for both shows.
