Ed Sheeran’s latest tour, which will be in Perth on March 3rd next year, is already making headlines!
Pre-sale tickets sold out instantaneously after being released last night. Fans were outraged as scalpers bought up many tickets and took to other platforms to resell them at inflated prices.
Sheeran’s agency, Frontier Touring released a statement warning fans to not go to other sites to purchase tickets at inflated prices, as regular tickets will go on sale soon.
Not only are tickets across the country selling out in record time, the Thinking Out Loud singer is also in line to break several other records. Including the number of Australian and NZ stadium performances and the number of fans performed to during one tour.
The Shape of You Singer said this was overwhelming.
“I’m overwhelmed with the response, to match that [AC/DC] record is very humbling.”
Sheeran’s promoter has not ruled out the possibility of adding extra shows into the March 2018 tour, with speculation this may happen as there is room in the tour schedule.
The current record for the number of Australian and NZ stadium shows is 14 and is held by Australian rock legends, AC/DC. Sheeran’s currently matching this number.
600,000 is the current record for the biggest number of fans performed to in one show, and is held by singer Adele.
Due to the high demand placed on ticket-sellers during yesterday’s pre-sale drama, general release ticket times will be staggered across the country to cope with demand.
Tickets for Perth will go on sale at 3PM on Tuesday the 23rd of May, 2017 through Ticketmaster Australia and Ticketek Australia.
