Ed Sheeran has revealed he plans on quitting huge tours in 2022 in order to spend more time with his wife Cherry Seaborn and their daughter Lyra, 16 months.
The singer, 30, admitted The Mathematics Tour will likely be his last stadium tour as he seeks to dedicate more time to family.
Speaking on the Teach Me A Lesson podcast, Ed was asked what he would tell his older self and said he thought it was key he wouldn’t be ‘choosing work’ over family.

He said: ‘I would hate to get to 20 years’ time and have a relationship with my kids that had suffered because I’d chosen work over them.
‘I think the pattern I see a lot in my sphere, is if I could go back it would be this: “I would not miss this birthday and I would not go, yes I’ll play another stadium”.
‘I think it’s about finding the balance with that – and I honestly think that this next tour that I’m going on, at the end of the tour, I can’t see myself going on one of them like that again.’
Ed added that at most, he would be away for ‘six weeks in summer or six weeks in the winter’ to ensure he isn’t missing out on time with Cherry, 29, and Lyra.

He said: ‘I do think life is about passing things on to the next generation and I want to put as much time into my kids as possible.’
The Mathematics Tour kicks off next year in Dublin’s Croke Park on April 23 with Ed performing across Europe until September.
Ed and Cherry have been together since 2015 and married in 2019, welcoming daughter Lyra in August last year.
It comes after Ed’s touring income took a nosedive during lockdown.

The musician raked in £70.4million through gigs the year ending March 2020 but figures for 12 months on tell a contrasting story, with the Bad Habits hitmaker pocketing just £591.
Ed’s Divide tour – which comprised 260 shows across almost two and a half years (2017-2019) – was the highest grossing of all time, with him earning over £556million after selling 8.5million tickets across six continents.
The star took a hiatus from music and lucrative touring in December 2019 before making a triumphant return to the industry in December 2020.
He has since topped the charts once again with his acclaimed album, Equals.

A source told The Sun: ‘Ed’s accounts for his company Hayagotatourboi Touring make for funny reading.
‘He has absolutely raked it in from his tours and in the past three years the firm has made more than £250million.’
The source added that the global sensation made so much cash it amounted to him earning ‘£192,000 a day.’
‘But now he’s taken a break he’s living a little more like us, with a daily income of £1.62.’
The musician is worth an estimated £220million.
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Ed for comment.

Following the record-breaking success of his Divide tour, the singer-songwriter took a brief hiatus from gigging to work on his number one album Equals, a reason why the cash flow dropped, an insider told the publication.
It’s highly likely, the insider believes, that Ed will ‘make even more cash than before’ when he kickstarts his Mathematics tour in April 2022.
It will be the father-of-one’s fourth world concert tour and due to high demand, he added a slew of extra dates to the first leg of his UK and European tour.
Ed will delight fans across the UK before moving on to the rest of Europe in July.
