ED Sheeran is due to have a medical surgery on one of his damaged eardrum’s which will take place early in the New Year. The English Singer and Songwriter is going to take a well earned break for this operation after he completes his final world tour dates in New Zealand this weekend. He will have to put up his feet as he recovers from this injury which he suffered from earlier in the year while on holiday with friends in Spain.
ED Sheeran tells Australia’s Nova Radio, “I have to have an operation in January on my ear because I stupidly jumped off a yacht really high up and smashed it,” and adds “I landed wrong and it burst my eardrum so I have to go and get a graft, which means I’m not allowed to fly for a while, so it’s kind of good, it means I have to stay at home.” The star did not realise the extent of his injury till he went in water. “It’s the most painful thing having a hole in your eardrum and having water go in.”
It seems like he is happy to have a break because it was well earned. Although it is disappointing as to what happened to his ear because it is a painful experience. The 24 year old singer stated it was fun jumping off a yacht but for this to happen was not expected! Him and his friends stayed in a house share before renting a yacht. ‘On the last day it was three of their 24th birthdays and I just thought, “bugger it, I’ll rent a yacht and we’ll just go out and escape all the pandemonium,”‘ Ed said. ‘And yeah it was pretty fun but that’s when the jumping off incident happened.’ The star further said he’s had other injuries while touring.
Sheeran accomplished the Australian leg of his solo tour Wednesday night with a show at Allianz Stadium in Sydney, where he was joined on stage by a special guest: Elton John He’ll complete his mammoth international trek when he plays Auckland’s Mt Smart Stadium on Saturday.
