Ed Sheeran – Sheeran’s Divide World Tour hit a rough patch earlier this week when the singer-songwriter canceled upcoming shows in Asia after fracturing his wrist and elbow in a bicycle accident.

Weird Al Yankovic – A selection of shows from Yankovic’s upcoming 72-date tour are on sale now, and are expected to sell quickly due to the smaller venue size the comic has opted for this time around.
