With Ed announcing six shows across New Zealand early next year, there will be a lot of people seeing the ginger headed icon perform, but you may need to pack a couple more things than usual.

For Ed's concerts that are going down right now in England, goers will have to be able to prove 100% that they were the original purchaser of their ticket, or they will not be allowed in.

Attendees over there are being asked to bring the booking confirmation and credit card, along with a form of ID such as a drivers licence or passport.

This is in attempt to cut back on scalping, as Ed is strictly against anything of the sort.

"Ed and his team have a strict stance against anyone using secondary ticketing websites for profit," Atlantic Records said in a statement.

"On this tour, any tickets that are resold will not be valid unless they are bought and sold through Ed's official resale partner, Twickets, which allows fan-to-fan sales at face value + booking fee only – this means no profit to touts and no one getting ripped off.

"On all the stadium dates, you will be required to bring your tickets, booking confirmation, and credit card, plus a valid form of ID, or you will not be granted entry to the show."
