It's official, come March 2019 we might be one kidney-less because we forked out some serious cash on VIP tickets for Ed Sheeran concert tickets.

The 'Shape of You' hitmaker has announced that he will be touring SA next year. 

It's all going down in early 2019, with a show at FNB Stadium in Joburg on March 23 and Cape Town Stadium on March 27.

Tickets are set to go on sale on Thursday, June 28 for Cape Town and Friday, June 29 for Joburg on Computicket.

If sales of his previous shows are anything to go by, expect them to sell out fast. 

Ed recently wrapped up his UK tour, where he sold a whopping 1.1-million tickets.

South Africans are huge Ed Sheeran fans. Several of his songs from his latest album, 'Divide', made it onto the Coca-Cola Top 40 chart, including 'Shape of You', 'Perfect', and 'Galway Girl'.
