"It starts in June. I know we're going for four months, so it's within a fair few venues in the US, and then we're doing a bigger tour next year," Sheeran told ET's Jennifer Peros on Monday. "People will get the opportunity to see the show they want to."
According to the "Castle on the Hill" singer, the upcoming tour will be different from his previous concerts, in everything from staging to the set he'll perform.
"The staging and what's behind me [is going to be different from my past tours]," he continued. "I've put a lot of the time and effort into it, and it's gonna look impressive. In terms of it being a show… now I can do a show where it's singles, which is something I haven't been able to do before."
Each show will obviously include several hits from his latest album, which Sheeran concedes is much happier than 2014's x, which he wrote while on the road.
"I've never actually made an album with time off. I've always made my album on the road where… well, it's not the most stable place for a relationship or a life. You know, you kind of live in a bubble that you create," he said. "That's how tour is, but it's a very weird environment to be in [while] making an album."
Tickets go on sale on March 17 for Sheeran's 48-date tour, which kicks off on June 29 in Kansas City, Missouri, and ends on Oct. 6 in Nashville, Tennessee. The singer will make several stops through California in August, including in Los Angeles on Aug. 10.
