Ed Sheeran&#zero39;s North American Stadium Tour Approaches $300 Million Earned


Ed Sheeran’s ÷ (Divide) Tour carries on, sweeping by U.S. stadiums and impacting the Hot Tours recap dated Sept. 29, 2018. Most lately, Sheeran performed a two-night engagement at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. on Sept. 21 and 22.

These stadium reveals symbolize a leap ahead for the British singer-songwriter, graduating from the North American arenas that marked the primary a number of legs of the Divide Tour. Sheeran performed three nights at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Sept. 29 – Oct. 1, 2017, enjoying to 41,066 followers and grossing $three.7 million, in line with figures reported to Streets Talkin Boxscore. Just one 12 months later, he returned to the New York space at MetLife, promoting 107,550 tickets and producing $11.2 million — 3 times the gross from the Barclays reveals.

This mirrors Sheeran’s trajectory in different markets as effectively. He grossed $2.three million from 25,590 tickets bought at Boston’s TD Garden in September of 2017 and returned one 12 months later for 2 reveals at Gillette Stadium to quadruple his consumption, grossing $9.eight million from 110,238 tickets bought.

Similarly, Sheeran grossed $2.6 million and bought 30,516 tickets throughout two reveals at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre in July of 2017, earlier than promoting out two nights on the Rogers Centre on Aug. 30 and 31, 2018, bringing in $eight.5 million from 98,462 followers.

The strides ahead that Sheeran continues to make in North America observe his 2018 successes at European and Australian stadiums, peaking earlier this 12 months with 4 reveals at Melbourne’s Etihad Stadium. There, he delivered his career-best gross, with $20.9 million within the financial institution from a staggering 256,622 tickets bought on Mar. 9-12, 2018.

The Divide Tour started in Turin, Italy on Mar. 16, 2017 and has traveled world wide and again within the 12 months and a half since. In that point, Sheeran has grossed $290.1 million and bought three.three million tickets throughout 149 dates reported to date. With 39 dates remaining over the subsequent 12 months, the trek might rise to compete with a few of the highest-grossing excursions of the last decade earlier than closing in Ipswich, England on Aug. 24, 2019.
