Ed Sheeran is coming to a city near you.
Divide broke Spotify records, receiving 56,727,861 streams in its first 24 hours. Early tracking estimates indicate the album will sell between 400,000-450,000 copies, ensuring a No. 1 debut.
Sheeran's North American tour will begin June 29 at the Spring Center in Kansas City, Mo., and will wrap Oct. 6 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. Concert tickets will go on sale March 17.
A special pre-sale for fans begins at 10 a.m. ET March 13.
"I'm spending four months in America," he told Today's Carson Daly, Savannah Guthrie, Willie Geist and Al Roker. "It's the most time I've spent in any continent at all. We're going to put this tour on sale and see how it goes, and then maybe come back next year for some more." This time, he'll be headlining arenas, as opposed to singing at more intimate venues. "It's all about the crowd and whether the crowd gets onboard with it," he explained. "If someone connects with you, it doesn't matter how far away you are, if you can get them connected with a song."
