Ed Sheeran Returns to New Zealand for ÷ World Tour in March 2018

Award-winning English singer-songwriter, Ed Sheeran takes NZ roads in support of his chart-topping album '÷' (Divide) where he will perform in Auckland and Dunedin next year!

Ed Sheeran’s stadium tour is fast shaping up to be one of the biggest in Australasian touring history as hundreds of thousands of fans snapping up the entire pre-sale allocations for his upcoming tour. To meet the overwhelming demand, four final shows have been added!

With the announcement, Ed Sheeran is now presumed to becoming the joint titleholder of the most stadium shows on a single New Zealand tour, sharing the record with AC/DC’s 2010 tour.

A sensational artist such as Ed Sheeran needs no introduction. He will surely 'slay' his performance as he plays completely unaccompanied, owning the entire stage using only his voice, his guitar skills and some pedal effects. 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 will sing the lyrics with him in synchrony.

Ed Sheeran singing career made noise as he gained an astounding six billion YouTube views, 70 million online followers, hundreds of thousands sold-out tours and a firm foothold on the top of our album and single charts.

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.

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 one of the biggest-selling albums in 2014 and in the following year Sheeran became the first artist to embark on national arena and stadium tours completely solo.
