PICS: Ed Sheeran's Phoenix Park set-up is almost ready and it looks incredible

He's playing it simple in the best possible way.

Performing on 16, 18 and 19 May, Sheeran will end his record-breaking 2018 Irish Tour by signing off with a series of the largest shows the venue has seen in years.

Prior to his arrival in the capital, JOE was given the chance to check out his set-up for the event.

The "bespoke" stage offers a 180 degree view for Ed with no interference from any angle when he looks out onto the crowd.

When he arrives on Wednesday to do a soundcheck, it will be the first time that he gets to see his Dublin set-up, although Aiken Promotions Production Manager Pearse Doherty confirmed that he is "totally hands on" when it comes to the design and arrangements.
