INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Ed Sheeran is taking a break from music.

On his final stop of the Divide tour, he announced the hiatus, the Sun originally reported.

"As you may or not know, I've been on the Divide tour for over two years now and this is the last day of the whole thing," he told the crowd, E News! reported. "There is something very bittersweet about it. ... "I love that you guys are here and we are ending it in Ipswich. This is my last gig for probably 18 months."

Sheeran admitted that the break felt much like a break up after spending a lot of time on the road and producing new songs.

Before his final bow, he thanked the audience and played a song he wrote when he was just 15 years old.

"... See you in a few years time. Thank you," he said.
