New Delhi: Here's the good news you've been waiting - tickets for Ed Sheeran's India concert will go on sale (for the first phase) from July, reports news agency IANS. News of Ed Sheeran's India concert broke the internet last month minutes after Justin Bieber arrived for his Purpose Tour gig on May 10. Now, IANS reports that BookMyShow has partnered with the concert organisers for exclusive tickets sales on the site from July. The starting price of a single ticket is Rs 4,750 which is much, much less than that of Coldplay's Global Citizen Concert held in November 2016. It's even cheaper than Justin Bieber's concert for which ticket price ranged between Rs 5,040 and Rs 15,400.
