Ed Sheeran reveals dates for North American leg of ‘Divide’ arena tour

There is just no stopping Ed Sheeran.

On Wednesday, the “Shape of You” crooner announced that he will be hitting the road this summer to promote his freshly released third studio album.

Divide, which dropped last Friday is already well on its way to debuting at No. 1. The record received a highly impressive 56,727,861 streams in its first 24 hours and rapidly broke YouTube’s one billion views mark.

The singer-songwriter told Entertainment Weekly that Divide was written and recorded while touring and traveling, something which greatly influenced its content.

“I’ve always made my albums on the road. The road isn’t always happy. It’s not the most stable place for a relationship or a life,” he revealed. “There are some dark, dark moments on the album. My life isn’t like that now. Those songs were basically written a while back and I felt they should be on the album, because you can’t just have an album that’s all positive. It has to have light and shade.”

Sheeran’s North American tour kicks off June 29 in Kansas City and will run until early October, wrapping up in Nashville.

A special pre-sale for fans begins March 13 at 10 a.m. ET. Tickets go on sale to the public March 17.
