Following his ÷ tour, which ran from 2017 to 2019 and became the highest-grossing tour of all time, Ed Sheeran is returning to the live stage in a series of stadium shows for 2022.

Beginning 12 May in Belfast, he will play 12 concerts in the UK, travelling to Cardiff, Sunderland, Manchester and Glasgow, and ending with three nights at Wembley Stadium in London. Fifteen further dates straddle 11 countries across Europe.

He teased the tour with projections across UK landmarks, including Battersea power station and the Angel of the North.

The tour, of which this is the first leg, is entitled the Mathematics tour, or + – = ÷ x, named after a string of his studio albums. He is currently gearing up for the release of =, which comes out on 29 October.

Its first single Bad Habits has spent 11 weeks at No 1. He is expected to knock himself off the top today, with new single Shivers.

Tickets for the Mathematics tour go on sale on Saturday 25 September.

In 2019, he broke U2’s record for the highest-grossing tour of all time, generating £567m ($776m) from 260 concerts and 8.5m tickets sold.
