After wrapping up his mammoth 'X' world tour of 179 shows, Ed Sheeran has announced that after his final show in New Zealand he is taking a looooong break, which kinda makes us wanna cry a 'lil bit.
Not only will Ed be taking a break from live gigs to focus on his new ~mUsIc~ but he let us know VIA social media that he ain't got no time FOR social media anymore...
He explains his decision as "I find myself seeing the world through a screen and not my eyes."
"I'm taking a break from my phone, emails and all social media for a while,' he wrote, adding: "I've had such an amazing ride over the last 5 years."
"I'm taking this opportunity of me not having to be anywhere or do anything to travel the world and see everything I missed.
"To my family and friends, if you love me you will understand me buggering off for a bit. To my fans, the 3rd album is on its way and is the best thing I have made thus far.
"See you all next autumn, and thank you for being amazing."
