The ÷ Tour (pronounced "Divide Tour") is the third world concert tour by English singer and songwriter, Ed Sheeran, in support of his third studio album, ÷ (pronounced "divide"). It officially began on 16 March 2017, in Turin, Italy and is set to end on a yet unannounced date. Ticket sales started on 2 February 2017.

In Ireland, more than 300,000 tickets for seven shows across Cork, Belfast, Galway and Dublin were sold in a single day, making history as being the only artist to ever do such feat in Irish territory. Due to the phenomenal demand, extra dates were added in both Cork and Dublin, with three dates for each city in total.

In Oceania, the tour broke the official record for the most tickets sold, at over 1 million (previously held by the Dire Straits tour in 1985, with around 950,000), as well as most stadium shows by a single artist on one tour (18, formerly held by AC/DC at 14). Sheeran also broke records for the biggest stadium tour of Australia and New Zealand, venue record for highest cumulative attendance on one tour and venue record for highest attendance for a single show.[19] More than 710,000 tickets were sold within a single day of general public sale. In Sydney, a total of 243,513 tickets were sold for three shows at the ANZ Stadium, which rolled out over three successive nights from 15–17 March 2018. The attendance per show was 79,726, 81,752 and 82,035, respectively. This set a new record for aggregate attendance at a series of stadium concerts in NSW, smashing the old benchmark of 213,045 set by AC/DC during their Black Ice World Tour in 2010.

According to Billboard, Sheeran's tour has grossed $290.1 million and sold 3.3 million tickets across 149 dates reported so far, from 16 March 2017 to 22 September 2018. After factoring unreported concerts from concert promoters, Ed Sheeran's tour has surpassed more than $500 million in ticket sales since its inauguration in March 2017. Ultimately, by the conclusion of his 2019 stadium tour, Ed Sheeran's Divide Tour will quite possibly be the highest grossing concert tour of all time as well as the most attended concert tour of all time.

He's coming to Colombia in June, I suppose he'll do more dates in South America around those days.

Due to the site crashing so much during the presale. Literally hundreds of people camped outside a shopping centre (with a Ticketmaster booth) near me last night  :skull: 

I'd say the same thing happened all over Dublin too :skull:
