In the middle of next summer, on July 12th, in Riga, Lucavsala the only concert of the global megastar Ed Sheeran will take place. Thanks to the longstanding efforts, capital of Latvia, the only one of the Baltic States, is finally chosen to host the musician’s extensive 2019 “÷ (Divide)” tour.

The British artist Ed Sheeran is not only one of the most successful recording acts and songwriters ever, but one of the world’s most in-demand live acts. Without any exaggeration, we can say straight away – currently Sheeran is the number one artist in the global music industry.

Ed Sheeran released his Grammy-winning third studio album “÷ (Divide)” in March last year. A songwriter of a generation, Ed has continued to dominate charts across the globe since its release. With over 15.5 million copies sold worldwide to date, “÷” has spawned Ed’s hit singles “Shape of You” (the third biggest-selling single of all time in the UK and most-streamed track on Spotify, ever), “Castle on the Hill”, “Galway Girl”, the 2017 UK Christmas Number 1 “Perfect” and “Happier”.

Sheeran released his 10 million-selling debut album “+ (Plus)” in 2011, which featured the UK’s biggest-selling debut track of that year “The A Team”.

In 2014, he returned with his critically-acclaimed 2nd LP “x (Multiply)” featuring his global smash “Thinking Out Loud”. ‘x’ charted at #1 on both sides of the Atlantic and has since been named one of the biggest – selling albums of all time by The Official Charts Company – the album is now 90 x platinum and has sold 16 million copies, worldwide.

Ed Sheeran has won an array of awards over his career to date including 4x Grammys, 4x Ivor Novello’s (British award for songwriting and composing), 5x BRIT Awards, 6x Billboard Awards and many more.

At the end of 2017 Sheeran was awarded a MBE (Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) for his services to music and charity.
