Ed Sheeran Just Shattered the Record for Most Profitable Tour Ever

Pollstar, which tracks revenue earned by concert tours, recently released their year-end report for 2018.

It turns out one person ended up bringing in more money in a single calendar year than any global tour in history and that man is, Ed Sheeran.

Ed raked in a staggering $432 million from 94 shows in 53 different cities, selling more than 4.8 million tickets.

For some perspective on how amazing those numbers are, Taylor Swift who was No. 2 earned $87 million less, though a still impressive $345 million and she also ended up having the Top US Tour of 2018.
