Ed Sheeran turns his home town into a massive festival venue as he builds enormous stage right next to a row of houses... but not everyone is happy about it!

  • Divide Tour began in March 2017 and has become highest-grossing of all time
  • Final four nights will see Ed Sheeran perform in front of 160,000 fans in Ipswich 
  • He has erected a massive stage behind a row of houses at Chantry Park, Ipswich 

Ed Sheeran will be playing the final four nights of his record-breaking world tour in his hometown, behind a row of houses.  

The pop star is finishing the Divide Tour at Chantry Park in Ipswich and has erected an enormous stage behind the houses.

This means that some residents will be able to hear and see the concerts from their own living room, with only a line of trees separating them from the stage. 

Sheeran will entertain 160,000 fans over the next four nights, marking the end of his lucrative tour. 

The Divide Tour began in March 2017 and this month became the highest-grossing tour of all time.

The tour has also been named the most attended tour of all time, with more than 8.5 million people across 43 countries seeing him perform. 

Taking to Instagram on the day he broke the highest-grossing tour record, Sheeran, 28, thanked his fans for their support and said he will 'never forget' the Divide tour.

He wrote: 'Today the Divide tour broke the all time tour record set by U2. Its now the most attended and highest grossing tour of all time.'

His rise to music success has been documented by his father John, in a never-before-seen exhibition which opened in his hometown on Tuesday.

Sheeran's journey to fame is shown through a display of snaps and memorabilia. 

In the showcase, his 60 tattoos take centre stage in a still from the video for his 2017 single Shape Of You.

Alongside his beloved guitar, the Suffolk-born singer's idyllic childhood is displayed through various photographs and sculptures, including one which shows him as an adorable red-haired toddler.

A prized addition also comes in the form of Sheeran's puppet replica from the video for his 2014 track Sing.

The exhibition was put together to coincide with Sheeran's return to his hometown for the final dates of his Divide tour.
