Ed Sheeran is to perform in a concert to kick off the NFL season opener in Florida next month.
The NFL announced on Friday that Sheeran will headline a pre-game concert on September 9 at Julian B Lane Riverfront Park in Tampa, Florida.
The pop star’s performance will take place before the reigning Super Bowl champions Tampa Bay Buccaneers face off against the Dallas Cowboys.
A portion of the show will appear on pre-game programmes on NBC and the NFL Network.
His full performance will be streamed on NFL.com along with the league’s Facebook page and app.
Sheeran is a four-time Grammy winner who took a break from work and social media in late 2019 after two years of touring in support of his best-selling album Divide.
He recently released a new single Bad Habits.
