He’s back! Following two consecutive sold out nights at the 3Arena, Dublin last July, Ed Sheeran has confirmed he will return to Ireland.

The ‘Castle on the Hill’ singer will play the 3Arena this April, and it seems like the whole nation will be trying to secure tickets.

So set your alarms, prepare your multiple devices and get ready to experience these 10 stages of emotions.

1. EXCITEMENT

"We found love, right where we are"

2. ANXIETY

"Wait! what if I don’t get them?!"

Devices at the ready, cup of tea in hand and deep breaths.

3. PARANOIA

Refresh, refresh, what time is it? OH GOD! Is my internet working? Why isn’t it working?! *Calls friend* "Is your internet working?!

4. ADRENALINE

You’ve made it! GO! GO! GO!

Click like your life depended on it.

5. PANIC"

"Why is this taking so long? LOAD TICKETMASTER LOAD!"

6. RAGE

"I’m NEVER buying from Ticketmaster AGAIN! That's it. Over. Done"

"And breathe."

7. JEALOUSY

That one Facebook notification that confirms that one of your friends has already secured their tickets - AND they’re the ones who ALSO GOT TICKETS TO THE CROKE PARK GIG!!!

8. RELIEF

SUBMIT ORDER.

9. MORE RAGE

"Password? THAT IS MY PASSWORD!"

"Verified by Visa is the bane of my life."

10. BACK TO EXCITEMENT

One new email from Ticketmaster.

*Cut to posting your success on Facebook like it was no bother at all*

"Of course we got tickets."

Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 9am from all usual ticketmaster outlets.

Good luck out there guys and may the odds be ever in your favour.
