Passenger, Rudimental to Open for Ed Sheeran

The loveable rouge-headed musician Ed Sheeran has announced the support acts for his stadium show at Mt Smart in December.

Mike Rosenberg, better known as Passenger has been a close friend and collaborator of Sheeran's since the pair met almost 10 years ago. His 2013 song Let Her Go was one of the most successful songs of that year globally, and has been streamed 320 million times on Spotify. Passenger has been gaining a dedicated fanbase in New Zealand since his first visit in 2009. He also supported Sheeran on his 2013 tour of Australia and New Zealand.

Brit Award winning & Mercury Prize-nominated Londoners Rudimental have worked with Sheeran on his song Bloodstream, from the album 'x'. For their latest single Never Let You Go Rudimental enlisted the musical talents of Irish musician Foy Vance, who will also be joining Sheeran's stadium tour.
