Ed Sheeran to perform at free Global Citizen Festival in NYC

NEW YORK (AP) — Ed Sheeran will perform at the 2015 Global Citizen Festival in New York's Central Park this fall.

The English singer will perform Sept. 26 on the park's Great Lawn, the festival announced Wednesday. Additional headliners will be announced next month.

The free concert, which will air on MSNBC, is in its fourth year. Past performers include Jay Z, Stevie Wonder, Neil Young, Alicia Keys, Foo Fighters and Carrie Underwood.
