Ed Sheeran has performed several times at the Infinite Energy Arena (when it was known as The Arena at Gwinnett Center) and he’ll return to what is seemingly his favorite local venue this summer.

As part of a major tour to support his well-received third album, “÷,” (pronounced “divide”), Sheeran will perform at the venue at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 25.

Tickets, priced at $39.50-$99.50, will go on sale at 10 a.m. March 17 via the venue box office, www.infiniteenergycenter.com and by calling 770-626-2464.

Sheeran has continued his hit-making ways with “÷,” thanks to the success of “Shape of You” and the sweeping “Castle on the Hill.” “Shape” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 – Sheeran’s first time at the top of that chart – while “Castle” entered at No. 6, crowning him as the first artist to have two singles make simultaneous Top 10 debuts in the 58-year history of the Hot 100 chart.

On Tuesday, Sheeran sat in with Howard Stern for another in-depth interview and performance. Check out a couple of excerpts below (and warning on the occasional curse word).
