The concert, is scheduled for 25 August, is also a part of celebrations for the company's centenary on the upcoming concert, Sheeran shared,


"HMV is a store that I spent a lot of time in growing up and a place where I discovered lots of new music, so I'm looking forward to celebrating this milestone with them."

 "To have Ed Sheeran - one of the world's biggest artists - not only coming to Coventry but performing in our new venue, the HMV Empire, is simply mind-blowing."
