Ed Sheeran is constant his unhealthy behavior of naming issues after math (sorry, maths) symbols. The pop star introduced his North American + – = ÷ x tour, which you’re imagined to pronounce “the Arithmetic Tour,” as a press launch has to emphasise a number of instances. He introduced the tour with a cheeky maths-class sketch, which ended on “subtract,” the one image Sheeran doesn’t have an album for — however let’s hope this isn’t an album teaser too, as a result of we will solely deal with a lot arithmetic chaos without delay! Sheeran will head stateside to play stadiums for the primary time in almost 5 years subsequent summer time after just lately wrapping the tour’s European leg. The + – = ÷ x tour begins in Arlington, Texas, on Might 6, and runs by September 23 in Inglewood, California, equaling 21 whole dates. And Sheeran is including on assist from Khalid, Russ, Dylan, Rosa Lynn, Cat Burns, and Maisie Peters — however, after all, dividing them up by present. (Matty Healy just lately revealed that his personal numerically inclined band, the 1975, turned down a gap gig for Sheeran.) The tour follows Sheeran’s 2021 album =, a reputation that was already uncontrolled.
