Grammy nominated English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran will perform at the Qatar National Convention Center on March 3, a local events company has said.
Ticket information would be coming soon, the company stated. The March concert is believed to be Sheeran’s first show in Qatar.
Sheeran is one of the larger musical acts in recent years to plan a show in Qatar, which artists travelling through the region often bypass in favor of Dubai or Abu Dhabi.
The announcement appeared to strike a chord with some local fans:
OMFG ED SHEERAN IS COMING HERE AT QATAR OMFG I CAN-T
