British artist Ed Sheeran has announced a grand tour of stadiums all over Europe for the summer of 2018. For France, Ed Sheeran will invest the impressive Stade de France on Friday, July 6th and Saturday, July 7th. The singer’s guitar will vibrate through the stadiums’ walls for your greater good.
Many of these lives will be held at the AccorHotels Arena. Formerly Bercy, this concert venue has a very busy program for 2018. But it is obvious that there are many more than 10 concerts that you shouldn’t miss so far. Some will want to see Harry Styles also at the AccorHotels Arena, definitely! Others will want to have the chance to see The Script performing at l’Olympia in February, after several years of waiting. I hope you’ll have the chance to catch them live!
And you, which concert(s) are you gonna attend in 2018?
