Following 6 sell-out shows in Cork, Galway and Belfast, Ed Sheeran brings his record breaking Irish tour Dublin's Phoenix Park tomorrow Wednesday 16, Friday 18 and Saturday 19 May.
Speaking from Phoenix Park today, Aiken Promotions with the assistance of An Garda Siochana outlined the following tips ahead of the shows to ensure everyone enjoys themselves safely.

- Please do not bring a bag unless it is totally necessary. People without bags will be fast-tracked. If you must bring a bag it needs to be smaller than A4 size. Bags under A4 size will be subject to a search which will result in unnecessary queueing.
- There will be free tag-a-kid safety wristbands which will be available at all the customer care points both outside and inside the venues. The purpose of these wristbands is to help reuniting lost children with parent/guardian should your child become separated from you within the venues.
- Avoid! Please beware of bogus ticket sellers, do not buy from any unofficial source / secondary sites as these tickets will not grant you access and we would hate for you to miss out.
