Red-headed pop superstar Ed Sherran has officially broken record sales in Australia; with over one million tickets sold, his 2018 tour has ranked the highest selling single tour in the country’s history.

According to the numbers released by Frontier Touring, Sheeran has broken a 32-year old record set by Dire Straits. The British rock band sold 950,000 tickets in Australia and New Zealand. In the process, he set venue records for highest recorded cumulative attendance at Optus Stadium, Sydney’s ANZ Stadium, Etihad and Suncorp, NZ’s Mt Smart Stadium, and Forsyth Barr Stadium. Frontier head Michael Gudinski told  Music Feeds that selling one million tickets is “simply phenomenal” and Sheeran is “truly gifted.”

It’s no surprise that the pop star is breaking records around the world. Sheeran’s 2017 record, ÷, captured the No. 1 spot on pop charts in several nations. The album, as well as both singles “Perfect” and “Shape of You” peaked at #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 Chart and took the #1 spot on Australia’s ARIA album chart. Additionally, ÷ hit the top charts across 20 territories including the U.K., across Europe, and throughout Asia. That popularity is also reinforced by data in the streaming world – he is now the second most listened to artist on Spotify with over 45 million monthly listeners.

Sheeran’s Australian tour began this past Friday, March 2 in Perth and will continue throughout the country this month, wrapping up on March 21 in Brisbane. The swing through that part of the world continues with six dates in New Zealand, a show in the Phillipines and Japan, followed by a run through Europe, making stops in Ireland, the U.K., Belgium, France, Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Poland. His North American tour will pick up this August in California and will cross the country to the East Coast, ending in November
