The 20-year-old, whose off-stage name is Callum Burrows, was main support on guitarist phenomenon of 2014 Ed Sheeran’s UK and European arena tour.

Callum said: “Being on tour with Ed Sheeran has been an incredible experience. The size of the shows were crazy and I feel lucky to have been part of that tour.

“But there is also something so special about doing headline gigs and playing to a crowd who have come specifically to see you. So I’ve been really looking forward to this tour and getting back out on the road.”
