Ed Sheeran’s Longford fans could see ‘All of the Stars’ last night, as they queued for more than twenty hours to secure tickets to one of the Brit Award winner’s Dublin concerts this summer.

The announcement that he would perform at Croke Park sent Sheeran’s fans into a meltdown in recent days, and after pre-sale tickets for his July 24 gig sold out yesterday, Wednesday, the ‘Thinking Out Loud’ singer announced a second concert in the historic venue on July 25.

Dedicated Longford fans began their wait at 1pm yesterday afternoon outside the Music Centre, Longford, before tickets went onsale this morning at 9am, with both dates selling out within the hour.

Meanwhile, as his fans braved the elements, Sheeran had a successful night at the Brit Awards, walking away with two awards for British Male Solo Artist and British Album of the Year.
