Ed Sheeran is following suit with U2 … he just cancelled his show this weekend in St. Louis amid rising protests throughout the city.

The promotion company for Ed’s tour put out a statement, saying his Sunday night concert at the Scottrade Center was nixed. They cited the same reason that U2 gave … local law enforcement couldn’t fully commit to providing a sufficient amount of police and other city services to protect concert goers. 

The company went on to say they plan on having Ed return to St. Louis at a later date in 2018, as his schedule allows. 

Ed’s the 2nd major music act to cancel a show in St. Louis after violence has erupted from protests. The protests stem from the acquittal of a former police officer who was charged with first degree murder of a black motorist following a high speed chase in 2011. Cops and protesters have flooded the streets as a result. 

As with U2 … Ed’s fans will receive a refund for their tickets.
