Ed Sheeran: 'Taylor Swift and I have become very close friends on tour'

British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran has revealed that despite the fact Taylor Swift's 'Red' tour spans six months he hasn't yet felt lonely because the pair have developed a close bond.

Speaking to E! News about the north American jaunt, the 'Little Bird' hitmaker explained that he spends most of his downtime with Swift and they get along really well so their relationship has made the run of dates very enjoyable:

"I go there, hang out with Taylor, I play a show, do my duet with her, then I hang out a bit more and then I go. So, really, it's a nice tour. Six months is a long time to go on tour and leave your family and friends and if you haven't got a friend on the road it can get quite lonely."

Sheeran also recently told Parade.com that performing to arenas full of people each night is nothing short of a dream come true: "I'm loving the 'Red Tour'. It's fun. Singer/songwriters always say they prefer smaller venues, but there's nothing like playing to 15,000 people a night and having them scream lyrics that you've written back to you."
