It’s official! The world’s most popular one man band is now also the world’s most successful road band of all time.
Ed Sheeran has just set the record for the most profitable tour in music history with his Divide Tour raking in an astonishing $739 million and change.
The most remarkable thing about that take is Ed that doesn’t have to share a slice of the pie like the artists just behind him...U2, The Rolling Stones and AC/DC in that order.
In fact, Madonna and Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters are the only other solo artists in the Top 10.
And Ed still has nine dates left to tack on to his take with estimates predicting those shows will push his gross to about $775 million. That’s a lotta ketchup.
