Ed Sheeran Taps Missy Higgins To Open His Shows In Australia

Ed Sheeran has announced that Missy Higgins will open his Australian shows while Six60 and Drax Project will share the stages in New Zealand.

“I’m very excited to announce the main special guests for my Australian and New Zealand dates,”Ed Sheeran said in a statement.

“In Australia Missy Higgins will be joining me, which I’m very happy about as I’m a long-time fan of her music.

“For Dunedin, Six60 will be joining me which is pretty huge. I’m told we’ve set a record in Dunedin for the most number of concerts, so those are going to be massive shows and it’s great to have Six60 on board.

“For Auckland, Drax Project will share the stage, who are doing really great stuff at the moment plus they hail from one of my favourite places in the world, Wellington, so extra points there.

“And we’ve got some more acts to announce shortly, so stay tuned! Looking forward to seeing everyone very soon.”

Missy Higgins gushed stating, “I’m profoundly grateful for the opportunity to share a stage with Ed and play to so many people but it’s already giving me butterflies. I don’t know whether I’m excited or terrified – probably a bit of both!”

Likewise Six60 were equally chuffed in NZ. We really wanted to bring our fans something epic in Dunedin and teaming up with Ed Sheeran seemed like a no brainer to make that happen. We just hope he’s ready to experience a Dunedin party,” Chris Mac said.
