Ed Sheeran will perform in venues across the United States for the first time in nearly five years in 2023. The 'Perfect' hitmaker has confirmed his North American live dates for next summer, with a slew of special guests joining him on the road.
From May 6 to September 23, 2023, the Grammy Award-winning musician will embark on the North American phase of his worldwide "+ - = x Tour," which is dubbed "Mathematics Tour."
The musician will make 21 stops tour North America, including ones at East Rutherford's MetLife Stadium on June 10 and Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field on June 3.
Atlanta, Philadelphia, Toronto, Nashville, Chicago, Seattle, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles are among the cities where the artist will perform.
Line up and special guests:
Khalid, Russ, Dylan, Rosa Linn, Cat Burns, and Maisie Peters will open for Sheeran on select dates, Matty Healy has disclosed that his own mathematically inclined band, the 1975, declined a gig as Sheeran's opening act.
How to buy tickets?
On Friday, October 14 at 10 a.m., Ticketmaster will begin selling tickets to the general public.
Seats are now available for purchase on StubHub, Vivid Seats, TicketNetwork, TicketCity, and MegaSeats. Speculative tickets frequently become available on the secondary market first. Tickets, though, can be more expensive than those offered to the general public.
The Mathematics tour will be the first to visit North America since Sheeran's 2018 Divide Tour, which became the most-attended and highest-grossing tour of all time. According to a press release announcing the North American dates, Sheeran performed for more than three million people in six months during the recently concluded UK/European leg of the "Mathematics" tour.
Ed Sheeran was most recently in the news for allegedly stealing some of the elements of the 1973 song 'Let's Get It On' for his song Thinking Out Loud. Previously, Sheeran's lawyers had requested that the case be dismissed because the alleged stolen elements of Marvin Gaye's 1973 song were completely ordinary and not valid to be challenged.
However, according to the most recent ruling by Judge Louis Stanton, there is no hard and fast rule in such a case, and a work may be subject to copyright even if it was compiled from unprotected elements.
