Ed Sheeran Announces +-=÷x Tour
17th September 2021, 8:05 am By Principality Stadium
Ed Sheeran has announced the first leg of his ‘+ – = ÷ x Tour’ (pronounced ‘The Mathematics Tour’), taking place in stadiums throughout 2022.
Kicking off in April next year, the tour will see Ed play shows across the UK, Ireland, Central Europe and Scandinavia, and will see him return to Principality Stadium in Cardiff for two nights on 26th and 27th May 2022. General sale for all territories commences on Saturday 25th September.
Ed’s upcoming ‘+ – = ÷ x Tour’ will see Ed return to stadiums for the first time since his record-breaking ‘Divide Tour’: taking place from 2017-2019, it officially became the most-attended and highest-grossing tour, ever, by the time of its completion. In 2018 Ed Sheeran achieved a record run of four nights at Principality Stadium, playing to a total of 240,000 fans.
On next years’ dates, fans will get to see Ed perform an array of tracks off his upcoming album, ‘=’, live for the first time, and they will also experience a new production set-up with Ed’s staging in the round, surrounded by the crowd in each stadium.
Ed’s highly anticipated new album ‘=’ will be released on 29th October through Asylum/Atlantic. Sheeran is set to replace himself at No.1 on the UK’s Official Singles Chart following the release of his new single ‘Shivers’ – a track that Ed performed for the first time at last weekends’ MTV VMA’s. It follows his colossal comeback track, ‘Bad Habits’, that has, so far, spent 11 consecutive weeks atop the same chart. Moreover, as of last week, Ed has become the first British Solo Artist to claim 52 weeks – a full year – at No.1 on the Official UK Singles Chart, with only Elvis Presley and The Beatles achieving more overall weeks at the top.
