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.

Accordingly, it is a logical result that Sheeran’s “÷ (Divide)” tour surpasses one highscore record after another, and the dates announced in many places have to be supplemented with new ones. In Ireland, more than 300,000 tickets for seven shows across Cork, Belfast, Galway and Dublin were sold in a single day, making history for Sheeran being the only artist to ever do such accomplishment in Irish territory. It went similarly in Warsaw, where 2 stadium shows were sold out within a few hours and more than a year in advance.

In Australia and New Zealand the tour broke the official record for the most tickets sold at over 1 million, as well as most stadium shows by a single artist on one tour (18), what is an absolute record for the region.

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.

The popular magazine GQ Magazine about Sheeran: “.. he is de facto voice of a generation, with music that reflects his personality and the defining characteristics of his audience. The recurring qualities of Sheeran’s music correspond with those that his own generation, the millennials, most value: authenticity, realness, earnestness, sincerity.

Sheeran’s trick is to be both an everyman and a man apart. He is, to his fans, just like them, but with the talent of [nobody else]”.

Ticket sales start on September 27th at 12:00 and only on www.bilesuserviss.lv homepage.
