"A triumphant evening, showcasing a consummate performer in his pop prime." - The Telegraph
"The current king of the charts could do no wrong on Saturday night as he left the Manchester crowd with no voices, but on a definite high." – Manchester Evening News
Our first taste of Divide came in the form of the singles ‘Shape Of You’ and ‘Castle On The Hill’ that broke Spotify’s one-day streaming record with a combined 13 million streams in just 24 hours, and debuted at no. 1 and no. 2 on the ARIA Singles Chart - the first time this has been achieved in the history of the Australian charts.
The album Divide and its singles have broken global streaming records and chart records in Australia: all sixteen tracks from the deluxe version of Divide have charted in the ARIA Top 40, Divide sits atop the ARIA Albums Chart for its seventh week while ‘Shape Of You’ recently notched up a record-breaking fourteenth week at no. 1 on the ARIA Singles Chart.
"Sheeran’s epic stage performances mirror his music and his life. He is a man alone, in control and vivified by the connections his songs make with his people." - GQ
There’s no denying the strong and long-running connection between Sheeran and New Zealand; his debut shows in 2012 sold out in just minutes, sophomore album 'x' was Australia’s biggest-selling album in 2014 and in the following year Sheeran became the first artist to embark on national arena and stadium tours completely solo.
Sheeran has sold out every single show on his tours of our shores and the '÷ World Tour' is sure to follow suit.
Witness Ed Sheeran's amazing performance as he serenades the crowd with his irresistible charm!
