Everyone assumed Ed Sheeran would never make music again after the birth of his first child in August 2020, but he did not.
With the announcement of the “+ – = x Tour” (read as “Mathematics Tour”) in North America, the Grammy-winner is back with a bang.
Fans can begin pre-ordering tickets on October 12 through the American Express Card Member Pre Sale, which will conclude on October 13. Ticketmaster will begin general public sales on October 14 at 10:00 a.m.
According to reports, the “Mathematics Tour” will begin the following year in Arlington and conclude on September 23 at Inglewood’s SoFi Stadium.
Houston, Tampa, Atlanta, Philadelphia, East Rutherford, Toronto, Landover, Foxborough, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Nashville, Chicago, Kansas, Minneapolis, Denver, Seattle, Vancouver, Las Vegas, and Santa Clara are among the other destinations.
According to reports, the 31-year-old singer has just completed the European leg of his tour and will travel to Australia and New Zealand in early 2023 before embarking on the North American leg of the tour.
American fans are excited to see the British musician. A fan tweeted:
“Can’t wait to see you for a 5th time, sir Sheeran! I’ve been a fan for so long! I was lucky enough to find a man who shares the same love for you! Cannot wait to share that moment with him! Cheers!”
“I was literally talking about this yesterday with my boyfriend, that I can’t wait to see you live!! I’m [so] happy right now. A dream come true.”
For the North American leg of the highly anticipated tour, the “Shape Of You” singer will be joined by special guests Khalid, Russ, Dylan, Rosa Linn, Cat Burns, and Maisie Peters.
As of this writing, there is no word on whether the “Thinking Out Loud” singer plans to tour Asia. However, it has been reported that he intends to retire from large tours.
He said in a “Teach Me a Lesson” podcast episode:
“I honestly think that this next tour that I’m going on, at the end of the tour, I can’t see myself going on one of them like that again.”
He stated that now that he has a family, he wishes to prioritize his relationship with them.
“I would hate to get to 20 years time and have a relationship with my kids that had suffered because I’d chosen work over them.”
The singer released his most recent album “=” (read as “Equals”) in 2021, which was described as a “coming-of-age record.”
