Ed is retiring from the music industry “at least 18 months” to spend more time with his wife, Cherry Seaborn.
The singer of Beautiful People has earned a fortune through his music and especially his tours, he is even in the top 17 of the richest artists in the United Kingdom this year. So, financial side, Ed should be pretty well!
He rocked the news during his last concert of his Divide tour Monday night in Ipswich:
“As you may know or not, it’s been over two years since I did this Divide tour and today it’s the last day (…) We played around the world: Glastonbury, Wembley Stadium. All these incredible sites, America, New Zealand, Australia, Asia, South America, it was crazy!
Tonight, before I started, I was told that I played in front of nine million people around the world. It’s the biggest tour of all time.
It was an emotional day for many people behind the scenes. It’s as if you break up with your girlfriend with whom you have been for years (…)
I want to say thank you to everyone on this tour. Thank you to everyone who gave me a chance. This is my last song. I wrote it at the age of 15. We’ll see you again in a few years. Thank you. “
Ed Sheeran married his childhood love Cherry last December and revealed that he wanted to start a family and he did not want to “spend the next 20 years on the road” adding that “children would be a different thing. I would not mind sacrificing myself for them. “
