Currently on the North American leg of his global ‘Divide’ stadium tour, Ed is not only one of the most successful recording acts, ever, but one of the world’s most in-demand live acts. On this summer’s UK run, Ed played to over 1.1 million people, including four nights at London’s Wembley Stadium, marking the biggest-ever solo tour [without a band] that the UK has ever seen!
Ed Sheeran – 2017’s biggest-selling global artist (IFPI) – released his Grammy-winning third studio album ‘÷’ (Divide) in March last year. A songwriter of a generation, Ed has continued to dominate charts across the globe since its release. With over 15.5 million copies sold worldwide to date, ‘÷’ has spawned Ed’s hit singles “Shape of You” (the third biggest-selling single of all time in the UK and most-streamed track on Spotify, ever), “Castle on the Hill”, “Galway Girl”, the 2017 UK Christmas Number 1 “Perfect” and “Happier”. Sheeran released his 10 million-selling debut album ‘+’ (Plus) in 2011, which featured the UK’s biggest-selling debut track of that year “The A Team”. In 2014, he returned with his critically-acclaimed 2nd LP ‘x’ (Multiply) featuring his global smash “Thinking Out Loud”. ‘x’ charted at #1 on both sides of the Atlantic and has since been named one of the biggest-selling albums of all time by The Official Charts Company – the album is now 90 x platinum and has sold 16 million copies, worldwide.
Ed was awarded a MBE for his services to music and charity at the end of 2017. He has won an array of awards over his career to date including 4 x Grammys, 4 x Ivor Novello’s, 5 x BRIT Awards, 6 x Billboard Awards and many more.
Ed’s show in Jakarta will feature one of the biggest names in rock music, ONE OK ROCK. A Japanese rock band which performs approximately 100 live concerts every year. The band has grown at a fast pace and has performed not only at small live houses, where they initially started out, but also at numerous large concert venues. ONE OK ROCK has rapidly become one of the most popular Japanese rock bands due to its hugely successful concerts such as Nippon Budokan Live in 2010, Yokohama Stadium Live in 2014, and The Arena Tour in 2013 & 2015.
