Ed Sheeran has announced that he will embark on an eight-day arena tour in Australia and New Zealand next year. With that, the x star will become the first artist in 20 years to do a solo headlining arena tour in that region, following the late country-rock singer John Denver.

The tour kicks off on March 20 in Brisbane, Australia, and wraps up on April 11 in Auckland, New Zealand. Tickets will go on sale starting October 2. “Ed wanted to ensure that his shows were accessible to all of his fans,” a statement said. “It’s incredibly rare these days to have all tickets at one price in arena venues but Ed wanted to make it happen.”

Sheeran last performed in Australia earlier this year, doing six shows in just two days across Melbourne and Sydney to promote his new album, x. He announced his new set of dates as he preps for this year’s iTunes Festival in London on September 29.
