Ed Sheeran has officially smashed the Australasian record for the largest number of stadium shows on one single tour, taking his current total of fourteen dates to a phenomenal eighteen date stadium run across Australia and New Zealand.

The original seven announced stadium dates quickly increased to fourteen this week, equalling AC/DC’s 2010 record.  Now, with the addition of four more stadium shows in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Dunedin, Ed Sheeran has lifted the bar higher than ever before.

The announcement comes off the back of Ed selling more than 710,000 tickets by the conclusion of the first day of general public on-sale.  With these newly announced shows he will surpass Dire Straits’ long standing record of an estimated 900,000 ticket sales from their 1986 Brothers In Arms tour.

Ed has also set new records for the most stadium shows on one tour at Forsyth Barr in Dunedin with three shows and at Etihad Satdium in Melbourne with four shows.

Frontier Touring are delighted to announce new shows as follows:
Friday 2 March – Perth, Perth Stadium [2nd Perth show]
Friday 9 March – Melbourne, Etihad Stadium [4th Melbourne show]
Thursday 15 March – Sydney, ANZ Stadium [3rd Sydney show]
Sunday 01 April – Dunedin, Forsyth Barr Stadium [3rd Dunedin show]

Ed Sheeran said today “I’ve always loved coming to Australia and New Zealand. So many amazing musicians have toured there and I am humbled to have broken these records.”

Michael Gudinski, head of Frontier Touring said “This is now not only the biggest tour Frontier has promoted, but it’s the biggest tour in Australian and New Zealand touring history!”

Touring in celebration of his record-breaking and chart-topping third studio album ÷(pronounced ‘divide’, out now through Warner Music), Sheeran will perform completely unaccompanied, joined on stage by just a guitar and effect pedals. The pull of this one-man band is an incredible experience to witness; layers of harmonies, rhythms and guitar parts cast out to a crowd of thousands who sing every lyric straight back to Sheeran.

From theatres to stadiums, Sheeran has sold out every single show on his four tours of our shores and the ÷ World Tour is sure to follow suit. Tickets to the new dates go on sale at staggered times (below) on Thursday 1 June.
