(CelebrityAccess) — After spending more than two years on the road with his record-breaking Divide Tour, Ed Sheeran appears to be headed for a long hiatus from music.

According to The Mirror, Sheeran broke the news to his fans while on stage during his Chantry Park finale on Monday night.

“As you may or not know, I’ve been on the Divide tour for over two years now and this is the last day of the whole thing,” Sheeran told the crowd.

“There is something very bittersweet about it. I love that you guys are here and we are ending it in Ipswich. This is my last gig for probably 18 months.

“We’ve played all around the world. Glastonbury, Wembley Stadium. All these amazing venues, America, New Zealand, Australia, Asia, South America – it’s been a wild one.”

Sheeran also touched on the record-breaking status of his tour, which was the highest-grossing run in history.

“I was told before I came on that now at the end of this tour I’ve played to nine million people around the world. It is the biggest tour ever,” Sheeran reportedly told the audience.

“It’s been an emotional day for a lot of people backstage. It kind of feels like, in a weird way, that you’re breaking up with a girlfriend that you’ve been with for years,” he added. “It sounds odd but it has been a long tour.”
