The Grammy-winning English singer will perform in India as a part of the Asian leg of his world tour to promote his third music album, ÷ (Divide). Sheeran's Mumbai gig is scheduled to be held on November 19, which falls on a Sunday. The concert will be held at JioGarden in Mumbai's Bandra Kurla Complex.

The announcement of the tour came at a time when Sheeran is enjoying the success of his two songs – Shape Of You and Castle On The Hill – that have hit the #1 and #2 spots on various charts worldwide.
This will be Sheeran's second India tour. The singer came to India in 2015 and was impressed with the country's culture. He shared his experience on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and said that he loved Indian spicy food.

Justin Bieber in Mumbai
On May 10, Canadian sensation Justin Bieber arrived in Mumbai for his performance as a part of his Purpose Tour. However, the concert received criticism after fans, some of whom paid as much as Rs. 75,000 for tickets, blamed the singer for lip-syncing at the concert.
